In my experience Tarpon fishing it is the fisherman that gets jumped by the Tarpon. When they take a fly it is a mugging not a bite!!

TERMINOLOGY NOT MENTIONED

" Thank You LORD " the aw enspiring moment when the sun first catches the water you just arrived on and the early morning fog is drifting silently among the coves. A truly inspirational day forthcoming..

" Shhh - Listen " listening closly you can hear the fish say " come and get me "
also you hear " laughing - are you seriously wanting me to bite that, and " what in the heck are you wearing"

"OOOh Daddy" - a common term when you peer over a rise and see an awesome pool with a good run, knowing the one for the day is waiting on you

" This is the life" a perfect term while basking in the sun on a big rock while the sounds of the stream whisper ever so delicantly, as you just sit back and enjoy the true solitude and serenity of such a great day of fishing - catching or not, it remains to be a great day.

and lastly
" I fish therefore I am - self explantory

Scratcher- very similar to a true sportsman salmon fly fisher, in that he/she uses a fly..... they are knowen when the fish is fowl hooked a sportsman will release said fish..... where a scratcher is pulling the fly through the heavly populated pool quickly with the intention of fowl hooking fish!!!

Which is why some people will look down their nose at fly anglers while going for salmon

Carpet Bombed

When you hit every possible holding, feeding, and hiding spot on a river with every fly in your box and still get skunked.

You know it happens.
