Stars Align for Fly Fishing

I enjoy the whole learning process at SwittersB & Fly Fishing. I am by no means a self professed expert. I study like you do and savor those gems of wisdom that add to our book of knowledge…a very loose leaf book of knowledge. I like to share the fun stuff I find.

This past few days, I had an opportunity to escape for a few days with my wife. I was relaxed and at ease while I fished. Less concerned with numbers, size of fish, self competition to succeed. Such traps have been my self imposed silos of thought in the past, that cause unnecessary stress. Factor in time constraints and competing life forces and the last thing one needs is a competitive bent.

That said, I do like to assess…assess what I think I know with what I observe and how it sorts out in some measurable successes. The past few days were a blend of successes: observing the habitat and selecting the perfect flies to present and, of course, the best measurement of success… cooperative fish.

The weather was perfect: the winds for stillwater fly fishing were mild, the temps pleasant. The pace was steady and peaceful. The body didn’t suffer too badly. The mind was at peace. The company was great!

Time for me, like for most of you, is limited to go fishing. Wanderlust can prevail, especially when one gets seduced by the fishbum life style. Not there for me, nor will it ever be. So, I have to enjoy the limited time and not taint it with over achieving mind games, that in the end rob me of the renewing qualities available for me. The stars aligned just fine for me.
