Flyfishing code broken

I have finially broken the code to casting a fly rod and enjoying the moment.
(1) It is not power or powerful hauls as we sometimes like to think.
(2) This is a sport of grace and elegant, fly casting is like dancing the waltz or tango, you have to practice practice practice.
(3) You will have to spend lots of time building up your cast the same way that you build up stairs.
(4) I have found that thinking about what you do never help, you will have to put it all to memory and sometimes it will still all go wrong when a little wind blows.
(5) Enjoy the day and the surrounding and never think that you know it all that is our biggest and most fatal mistake.

You left out the MOST important one!

The first rule of ANY sport is this:

1. Don't take the sport (or yourself) too seriously. Lives do not depend on it. Remember, you are doing it for FUN!

And, the corollary:

2. At the end of a rotten, cold, sleeting, fishless day, remember to ask yourselves, "Are we having fun yet????":hehe: :hehe:
