Default Fishing In Your Dreams

Last night I had a dream that I was Czech Nymphing with my son on the Upper Sacramento River and both of us kept getting triple hookups of fish between 14"-24" and in between we were getting singles, but they were 15-20 pounders. In both instances they were always a mix of Rainbows and Browns.

So any one else have fishing dreams you can share!

When I was in Jr & Sr high school I use to day dream during class that I was fishing.
In my mind I would practice casting so much that it actually worked and that's pretty much how I learned.

My dreams over the past few months (I only began fly fishing about 9 weeks ago, yet I've become overwhelmingly obsessed), have focused not on the act of fishing, but on preparing to fish - reading, evaluating, learning, choosing the next destination, packing for each trip, emptying my wallet, etc...

Great question.

Michael

In Sports Psychology they call that Visualization...and it does work quite well!

Been there, done that. Sign (a good one) of a very active mind.

Default Re: Fishing In Your Dreams

I've had only one, and I remember it because it was a fishing nightmare really, and pretty bizarre. I had cast out to a huge bonefish which ate the fly. I set the hook anticipating a screaming run, and he just sat there. I put some tension on him, and he just swam toward me.

When he got right in front of me, I tried to kick at him to get him to take off, but he just liesurely avoided my foot and stared straight up at me. And I knew exactly what he was thinking somehow while he stared up at me. "I'm too old for this nonsense, so just take the hook out and let me go".

Then I woke up, of course.

Bones are pretty savy fish and actually have different personalities and show anger quite often. I've had more than one turn on my fly, then follow the leader to the line and the line to me, get up close to me, give me a superior look and swim nonchallantly away without spooking at all or even giving the tail whack alarm signal.

But to get that smart would indeed be a real nightmare.

Cheers,
Jim

I've been dreaming of Kamchatka since Friday night. That's when I purchased "Eastern Rises."

I usually dream about my next fishing trip, when are we going, what to bring, etc.

Haven't dreamed/dreamt?? about fishing since last October when we chased Steelhead for the first time. When we got home I was 'swingin' flies' every night for a good 3 weeks.
I'm sure it will happen again when we get back this year too.
