Okay...so I know I'm hooked on fly fishing, but last night really drove the point home.
I fished the Caney that afternoon...did pretty well and had a great time.
That night...of course I told my wife about everything that happened that day...she's nice...she listens...for a while anyway. She turns in and I stay up for a couple of terrible movies that I watch anyway. That's another addiction.
Any way...I hit the hay about 1am and of course before I go to sleep I'm thinking about "the one that go away" that day.
Well, we've got these vertical posts (for lack of a better name) on our headboard and I was gripping one of them when I went to sleep. I can vividly remember dreaming of this trout and just as he takes the fly...I of course set the hook! I've got a death grip on that post (I think it's my flyrod) and then I reach out to grab the slack in the line and pull him in when I wake up because I've just grabbed my wife's arm and scared her to death. I can't help but laugh at the whole thing. She thinks I'm crazy...but laughs a little too after the shock wears off.
Anybody else ever act out a ff dream like that?
Oh yeah...he was a nice size rainbow...I would've landed him this time.
