That's exactly's that sensation, that mental image in the mind, that keeps me coming back again and again. It's that picture of a dry, placed exactly where you wanted it...drifting, drifting, and you know the take will happen any second now, but it still takes you by surprise - sometimes so much so that you forget to react and set the hook.

It's that picture that I keep in my head, and that I think about when my mind starts to wander at work. You cannot top that sensation, and it can't be described in mere words. If I could bottle it, I'd be rich.
