Is this where I enter my submission for first fish of the season on a blue fly when camera battery is dead? How about most fish per hour with dead camera battery? Or prettiest redband ever caught on blue wool fly when camera battery was dead?
Opening day with the blue wool ugly. Seems as good as the purple ugly.
“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten” – Benjamin Franklin
"Study to be quiet." - Izaak Walton 1653
"Be sure in casting, that your fly fall first into the water, for if the line fall first, it scares or frightens the fish..." Col. Robert Venables 1662
As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.
The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
