Fly Fishing = Ingenuity

Today I figured out why I like fly fishing so much. I was listening to speaker talk about "Ingenuity" and the word describes fly fishing to a T. It's all about finding creative ways and modifying your approach to be successful. It's problem solving but there really is no "end", only growth. It's an evolution of ideas and attempts with (at first) limited resources.... I could go on but I'd rather hear your thoughts!

I think ingenuity is a very important ingredient in all aspects of life not just fly fishing.

I need to start tying my own flies though so ingenuity isn't so costly as far as fly selection goes.

PASKIING, Do it! I've started tying flies, and building rods. The more you "do it yourself" the more rewarding it is, in my experience.

I do understand your theory but fortunately I have very few problems whilst I'm fishing and if I do have something that I need to figure out... It's not a problem.

Yesterday, whilst driving, I was pondering what it is about fly fishing that captivates my attention so fully while never getting stale like some of my other pursiuts have. I realized that it's the limitless learning... learning to cast, read the water, recognize a hatch, tie flies, stalk a feeding trout.

That and it's fun to catch fish.
