Forgot to add something learned; if you don't slow down you'll pull out your leader and line too fast and break the tip of your Sage. Doughhh! And how humbling the walk back to car is.

Don't rush on loose terrain, might fall on a rod (ask me how I know!)
--> and following, only buy rods with a no questions asked replacement plan

Pee before you get in the belly boat

Keep the line on the downwind side of your body in windy conditions

Quit casting so dang much

look for fish, then cast

wait 1 minute (count 60 seconds...) before recasting at a fish you just missed

Chill out. Have a smoke

camo

change depth before changing the fly

eat lunch, drink water. Thirst and hunger leads to slow reaction times

cheap waders leak within a week

piercing your ear doesn't hurt, removing the barbed hook kind of does

wishing won't make your girlfriend like fishing

don't tell anyone where you caught a personal best

Is that a Colorado smoke or something that comes from ol' Virginia

No seriously, I miss smoking and fishing. The time it takes to burn a cigarette is just about the same time that it takes a pea brained trout to forget you're standing there

From last weekend: when a really good fish goes on a run, while palming the reel keep your da*n thumb out of the way of the reel handle :-(

Law does not limit purchase to Colorado residents. Still illegal under federal law, so no one knows yet how that will play out.

Thinking like a fish is a good thing, right?
