Always look up, or you will have nothing but snags.
Slow down and be willing to wait for clarity, or you will have wasted effort.
Every part of the stream is different, yet connected, so be willing to adapt, but never abandon principle truths.
Moments in life, just like time on the water, are fleeting….
The coolness of water on your legs, the sound of water over rocks and birds in the trees, the subtle downdraft of air against your face… these are the precious details of the moment so easily not noticed and forever lost.
The rise of a trout, the taking of your fly, the tug on the rod… the moment when preparation meets opportunity with execution…. beautiful, beautiful indeed.
