Default Re: Question for bass fishers

I'm going to give you a bit of advice here, and I don't want you to take it the wrong way, because I'm constantly reiterating it to myself when I fish:

Change your damn fly!

Very early on in my fly fishing journey I learned that patience is a large part of the sport. A lot of us (including me) sometimes putter along with the same fly, not getting much new action, because we don't want to take the time to tie on a new one. The fact is, fly fishing can sometimes be a pain in the @ss. No one wants to change a leader, add more tippet, or tie on new flies, but learning to accept this, take a knee, and sacrifice a minute of your time often pays off ten fold.

For every "I could have caught that fish if I had a second rod" story, there's a guy out there changing his fly and catching that fish.
