    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

    I've always said that helps you to think like a fish !

    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 :-(

    On November 6, Colorado became the first state to legalize marijuana for recreational use. Does not become effective until January 2014 to give the State Revenue Department time to establish guidelines. Local jurisdictions can prevent sale within their boundaries. 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?
