True story...let it die like a bug under my shoe. Then pick it up and start again.

I call these collapsed casts. It's important to know when you lost it....otherwise, you may lose it trying to untangle the mess you've made.

re: the earlier page 1 discussion on how to poop in the woods- maybe it's because I'm skinny, but I've found that the "crab" posture works best, and allows the most clearance.

Well, there's the mind's eye for you.

I assure you, I have no intention of posting photos of the procedure, or even a diagram.

Explain to your wife that you will be receiving pink condoms in the mail in order to tie Vladi Worms versus letting her find them on your desk. This move would hedge many questions and inquiries.

So to get this thread back on track...

Everyone has covered all of the practical things...so I'll add some big picture lessons I have learned.

1. Fly fishing has made me a much more patient person

2. Along the lines of patience, fly fishing has made me a much more patient fisherman.

3. I find that a good day on the water does not always mean bringing a fish to hand every few casts

4. Experimentation will catch fish. Don't always be preoccupied with matching the hatch. For example, I went to the Gunpowder the other day...only had about an hour and a half to fish. I started out with something that always takes fish on the Gun...a small BHFBPT. I landed a fish on my 3rd and 5th casts. Two fish in hand, and had not even smoked half of my cigar yet! I saw some fish rising, but didn't see anything in the air except midges. I had a BWO emerger pattern I had tied recently and figured I would give it a shot. Wouldn't you know it...fish on!

5. What they say about tying is all true...much more rewarding to take fish on flies you tied yourself.

Well , i agree wholeheartedly with #3 ,4 , n 5 but the part about patience is a little different than i thought , i listened to folks go on for years about how patient i was and flyfishin g is sooooo patient , uhhhhhh after doin it for 50 years it's not patience , it's obsession , OBSESSION!!!! I'm plaguerizing something i read once but it is definately , in the end more about obsession than patience fror me.

I am totally obsessed. I yelp even with a small fish. I want to be better with every cast.

As far as the lesson learned. I've learned to enjoy the unexpected.

When you hook a branch and you tug it loose and the fly hits the water and SNAP!

I always keep a key hidden on my car. MUST HAVE. Hiking back to civilization in wet wading boots is a bummer.

Beavers are more scared of you, no matter how big they are.

Get out of the stream before you use your cell phone.
