Default The power of positive fishing.

Some friends have been discussing (heatedly, sort of) about how much fishing luck depends upon positive vibes being sent down the line.
Does anyone else use the force! Or, is just the right bug on a good drift, to a hungry fish? I think a bad attitude is a common barrier to hooking up!
Sort of a self fulfilling prophecy.

Jim.

I'm a firm believer in having Faith in your fly. If you don't think it's the right fly you won't fish it well and will have fewer or no hook ups. You got to believe!!

I believe you have to have faith in your fly and the way you fish it. If you don't you're going to be thinking about everything but your fishing.

Faith is the big factor here. That is like me casting a bright red fly and knowing all the time ----ha this thing is not going to catch anything. I do know if I have my favorite fly tied on I am more alert and I just know any minute I am going to get a hit.

Been sitting Zazen this morning with my favorite carpenter ant pattern.
I think it will work today. I think I can, I think I can.......
Perfect cast, perfect drift, perfect bug.....
Positive visualisation. When that fish rises today, I will be ready.
This drift.
Leviathon awakes!!!

Jim

ps, Please send happy thoughts my way, couldn't hurt.
