Saturday was the best fishless day of the year by far. I had a blast sighting the fish with you. You really had to believe they were gonna come back, and they would, most of the time.
To me, sight fishing also involves seeing the reaction of the fish. Not just seeing where the fish are gonna be, or might be, but how they react to the fly, presentation, etc. Seeing a fish refuse a fly after a follow, although painful, is almost as exciting as catching it. When I can see the fish's reaction, I'm sight fishing.
