Without a doubt this will be the downfall for those looking for a quick fix to their fishing game, I make no guarantees to improve anyones skill however, I may be able to adjust your mindset to a parallel perspective. Let me preface this with the ugly truth of reality. Fishing will become what you make of it, it’s your life and you choose the path of your vessel.

I will try to keep it interesting and although hunting for fish to eat a fly is nothing new, I’d like to offer my perspective for beginners looking for advise and experts looking for a laugh. I will be challenging myself to post a minimum of once a week, and it will be more of an article of sorts and explanations with hypothesis of what I believe worked or didn’t. Feel free to chime in and add to the mix when you’d like, I will never turn down humor and or advise from an expert or overlook a single comment if possible. I will keep a log of conditions each day on the water such as temperatures, Tides (coefficients and heights), moon phases and weather. If I do my part we’ll hopefully begin to find more truth and understanding through physical research and hopefully draw an understanding of what days are best for kitchen passes (for my friends with families and wives).
