Yesterday as I tried to cast to a small pool across the river I realized that I couldn't reach it because of the brush behind.
I thought to myself "If I only had a few more few feet.". Then it occurred to me that waders aren't part of some costume worn by actors in A River Runs Through It (curse that movie for fooling me) but serve a function. Now those of you who have been at this for some time will smile and say "He has a lot to learn." and I would agree and that is why I blog: to learn from the experience that others are willing to share.
With all these light bulbs going off over my head I have to keep an eye out for the Feds because they aren't Compact Fluorescent Lightbulbs!
I also met another fly-fisherman who showed me how to roll cast (of course I heard about it before and had been doing it incorrectly). He told me about a TU Chapter that he recently joined and invited me to come to an upcoming meeting. I just joined a few minutes ago via the web.
Besides my brother-in-law (pictured at the top of the blog) and a co-worker I haven't meet many other fisherman who are willing to share their experience as much as fly-fisherman. I guess because it takes more effort and perseverance to stay with it and people can relate to your frustration (as I can attest to).
