Unless one can enjoy himself fishing with the fly, even when his efforts are unrewarded, he loses much real pleasure. More than half the intense enjoyment of fly-fishing is derived from the beautiful surroundings, the satisfaction felt from being in the open air, the new lease of life secured thereby, and the many, many pleasant recollections of all one has seen, heard and done."

Great read Brian. I'm not even a fly angler and I enjoyed it.

Do you happen to know what streams south of Rushford are looking like today? I am thinking of taking off either thurs. or fri. to fish down there with a buddy I havent fished with in a while.

Thank you for the input and kind words ... glad you enjoyed it. Don't know what they are looking like today as much of the area got over an inch of rain last night with those storms. I'm assuming however by Thursday or Friday barring any other "events" they should clear and be fishable. Good luck if you do get out - we are heading to Milwaukee for the IF4 fly fishing film fest - ours friends in Utah have one of the features films.

Great article Brian. I learned a lot. You've convinced me to try some of those darn dry flies. #streamerjunkie
