I want to be a fly fisherman, but I suck.

Back in the 50's, ever winter the old man would pack us up and take us to FL to visit dear old grand dad.  The high point of every trip was a day at Lake Okeechobee.  We would break out the Tenkara rods (back then they were called cane poles) and fill the coolers.

I always thought fly fishing was supposed to be serenity for those that did it.  But every year I try and when I'm done flailing at the water, having spent more time trying to tie knots with invisible leaders and microscopic flies than fishing; at the end of the day, usually with a sprained ankle and no fish, I question my own sanity.  I wan't to be a fly fishermen.  I have the equipment.  I've watched "A river runs through it" a hundred times.  But I still hardly ever catch fish.  Is fly fishing just one of those things that looks good on TV and in books, but in reality, its never what its cracked up to be?  

 

Well, did you get any better at it?

No.  I didn’t get out much.  Maybe this summer.   But right now it’s time me to practice being a good ice fisherman.:D
