fyi

Bobk and MGYP

Going to go run 4 miles, right now through the forest preserves its such a nice day sunny, 45 degrees, blue sky, no wind. Final part of the hard core GLs winter steelheader master plan to prepare for the upcoming endurance tests. Will end with about 10 minutes of the stairmaster for the hill and muck swamp walking preparation.

Hope your doing the same, if not, you will have a hard time keeping up with me on a real GLs steelheader winter fishing excursion.

Take a jaunt thru the Dan Ryan Woods it will up your speed 10 fold. Just don't feed the dogs.

Not worried about keeping up with you, you have never fished the Indy. creeks (or so you said). Been thru muck, snow, ice, clay pit up to my hips. Over trees, etc.

In fishing it is not the first guy that wins the race, its the patient one who does.

This is one of the most concise and on-point comments I've seen around here in a long time. Well said.

Parents and fishing....

Part of the joy of being a parent (grandparent, too!) is setting the little ones up so they will get lots of action from the fish. When I took my kids fishing, often I didn't even take my rod (or if I did, never got to use it.)

May seem strange to you now, but it's not when you're a parent.
You want the kids to have fun, maybe even let them throw rocks in the river if they feel like it! What you try to give is a feeling of closeness to the outdoors. Help them, but don't be an authoritarian. Just share the time with them. It pays dividends.

As a result, I never had a major problem with them, and they all turned out well. Good, sound marriages (son is still a bachelor, though.) and my grandkids to dote on.

And my oldest daughter is still an excellent fisherman, as is my son. My middle daughter had fun, but would rather be a social animal - to each his own.

Don't need to keep up with you, I'd rather waste my energy on fighting fish then shooting down a path.

I normally don't follow the salmon boards, but this thread has peaked my interest. In particular are some comments like this one.....

Hal, how can you make this assertion when you've never fished with any other forum members? With all due respect, do you really believe this? Some other comments you've made in this thread and others could leave some of us to believe that you have a very high opinion of yourself, and that would be unfortunate. Some things don't translate well on the internet, and I just want you to be aware that some of this has the potential to make you look like a chest-thumping braggart.

It's not about who can keep up with who on a trail, or who can "take on" other anglers.....it's about enjoyment, plain and simple.

I'm only saying this to give you some perspective.....no offense intended.

Another great quote from Lee Wulff.

Found on Gstrand's web site one of our forumn members, thanks we will add it to the Lee Wulff legacy.

"Somewhere in the wide range of activity between the hard physical effort of wading for long hours against a swift current in a rocky stream, casting steadily, and the indolence of lying quietly in the sun waiting for a bobber to go under there is a type of angling to suit everyone’s mood and everyone’s pocketbook. Fishing is fishing wherever it is found… Angling’s problems are never solved."

-Lee Wulff, in his Handbook of Freshwater Fishing, 1939.

P.S. Dblehaul, I noticed your comment above, I have not been back to this thread in a long time and had not seen it. Of course that was a tongue in cheek internet comment to MJYP one of my GLs colleagues who likes to kid about things. One cannot believe everything that is written on the internet thats for sure.

Got to go and run my three miles now at lunch, yes I do keep in shape to be able to go long and hard on the steelhead rivers. At 55 it is getting tougher, beleive me !

the secret of catching fish

I like Wulff's style and something I think he would agree with if he did not say it himself is:

90% of catching fish is going where there are fish, 10% is a combination of presentation, fly selection and luck. Of course the latter is moot if the first condition is not met.

So if you can find your way to where there are lots of fish, whether you pay the big bucks or trek into the wilderness, you are going to catch fish.

Dan
