A BIG fish is a GOOD fish

Having fished it once for four days in prime time as a blind date on match.com, my experience was a little disappointing. The gal was a flake and her friends all fished 'yarn' flies. I swung stones on tips and could not compete with glo bug yarn on a snelled hook dead drift. I left the girl and her egg drop soup quite happily. But I remember it being a very pretty gl trib that river of presidents. Lots of jacks/half pounders. I wished I was fishing lighter tackle. No regrets not landing that bigger hen.
"In a world that rolls ceaselessly underfoot, rocking and lurching like a subway car, i've found that the cork grip of a fly rod offers a pretty steady handhold."
