If a rod doesn't sing with a fish on, then what's the point? The only reason I fish is to feel the fight, not to winch them in like Bill Dance so I can throw some more tight loops. It often sounds like flyfishers are actually only fly casters, who care little about the heart of the matter, which is the sensation of the pulsing head shake. $.02
