Well said Cliff , pretty much me . I used to catch a lot of fish every time I went out but somewhere along the line I found out I was doing it wrong so I started doing it the right way . $800 plus rods , still cheap reels though and for some reason I dont catch a third of the fish I used to . In my box of fly boxes I have close to 10 K fly's and hell if I know what they are but they sure are pretty ! When I go to the Juan I know what I should fish and where but I never do because I am overwhelmed by the vision of all the flash in my box . I guess with age we start unlearning the things we started learning in our youth ? I'll leave it here because I'm starting to think again and my bald little head just cant take it .
