Thanks, Byron. Re-hashing a fishing trip, even a short one, on this board helps me organize my thoughts on it, and so better remember the day. Its strange that so many experiences in flyfishing, like a strike on a fly, happen so quickly that we almost miss them and they later exist in our memories as a still image. Others are more subtle, encompassing much more than a single event, and will easily remain in the background if we don't stop and bring them into focus.
Life is hard. But it's a lot harder if you're stupid.
