Don't get me wrong. I get skunked often enough, and am old enough to have reached the point where I enjoy the whole process of fishing for steelhead on the swing. I love it all, the fly tying the night before, checking the gear, studying the flows and the weather, and planning (some may call it scheming). I even love the down-side, the blown out rivers, the cold fingers, broken rods, leaking waders, felt soles falling off, unexpected swims, battling the weed farmer who doesn't want me to fish near his property, etc, etc.
But sometimes it all comes together...and I feel that mighty tug and hear my reel sing.
