How can you verify line type?

The first thing I do with a new fly line is mark the backing end..permanent marker. Long mark = 5...short mark = 1. so, an eight weight would be one long mark followed by 3 short marks.

Looks like this end of the state is going to be still water warm wart fishing. I guess it is always good to learn more something pretty new.

Just went out flailed the local pond well. How could I have 'forgotten' how to cast?!?!?! It wasn't that long ago.

Think I need to go get a wrist brace to break the habits I picked up with the #3 on small streams.

Snapping of flies on the back cast? CHECK
Casting "S"'s? CHECK

As many know I was away from the forum, my home and of course this computer keyboard for the time span December 23, 2012 - March 27, 2013. Before I start writing a series of long photo filled entries about all the work and a few photo opportunities that I had over the winter at the cabin it seems appropriate to re cap 2012.

Thoughts on my mind.

So it has been a while since I posted last, but I have to be in the right frame of mind to say anything anywhere.
Over the last couple of years I have been debating the relationship I had or have with God......sorry I do not like that word, it carries too many negative connotations for me but people refer to him as God, I think of "him" as an entity that is not He or She, does not adust all of our lives individually all of the time. I believe we have the freedom to create our own...
