New Fly Fishing Book
« on: June 27, 2018, 12:06:16 PM »
So I presented this as joke at my fly fishing club and they seemed to enjoy the idea.  This is the a (fictitious) book idea that I have and the chapters on how you can become a great fly fisher or at least appear to be.

Good things come to those who Wade


-How to properly stop an ear that is bleeding
-Mastering knocking your buddy’s fish off while netting it for him
-Understanding the barometer and how’s it’s always at fault
-All waders leak…get used to it
-Explaining how a dew worm got on your hook
-The older I get the more I realize that size 20 and smaller flies are not required.
-Photography: How to make a 8” trout look like it’s 16”
-Pretending to understand tippet X numbering
-Keys to explaining to your spouse why you absolutely NEED that new reel
-Positively identifying a hatch when in fact you have no clue
-“It’s just nice to get out” and other things we say to console ourselves
-It’s a fact that trees really do intentionally & actively reach out and grab your flies
-Spey casting in 47 easy steps
-What is a knot-A tangle with a name
-“I lost count” means half as many as your buddy claimed to have caught
-Why I have over a thousand flies but I only ever use the Wolly Bugger
-A great fly fisher is identified by how prepared they are with the right excuse.  So
   Too cold/Too Hot
   Too windy/Too still
   Water too dirty/Too clear
   Too much fishing pressure
   And as always “the barometer”
-“Last Cast” means I’ll be ready to go in 20 mins to 2 hours

Hope you enjoy.

lol... That's hilarious!! Thanks for sharing that with us, Scott!
For me, the quality of a trout is not measured in inches or pounds, but rather by the journey and circumstances that allowed our paths to cross...

I will fish anywhere and find beauty in it.

Don't be a Pessimist. Don't be an Optimist.  Be a Realist and change when you need to.

Why I keep losing fish - "I always practice catch and release"

Why I can't hook fish - "I'm eliminating the flies that don't work so I can really concentrate on the ones that do".

Why I never catch fish - "The key to fly fishing is consistency".

Why I slipped and had a dunking. - "Sure you can use a thermometer but a trout is fully immersed in the water so you have to experience that to fully appreciate how the fish reacts to the water temperature".
