As with most Fly-fishermen and women I can be impatient at times. I have been known to have many projects going at the same time. Peace comes not from the catch, the completion of the project , or at Payday. Peace comes in preparing for the trip, the loading of the perfect cast, the discovery of the usually unseen during the inspection.
Ok, the feeling at the end of a morning walk through cold water waving a stick is mighty peaceful. And I admit sitting in front of a fire after the evening walk, sipping out my flask warming up is too. But the memories of the most severe critics in the world rising and taking without reservation your creation of wire, string and feathers is timeless.
