Something I've learned after blogging and Facebooking for as long as I have, is that we all have our own personal reasons for fishing and what discoveries we make along the way. As part of my growth process, for hopefully we all grow with each experience outdoors, I felt the need to put my thoughts down about things that I have learned while fly fishing. I call them my fly fishing truths.
A good fisherman will learn many knots that are useful for more than just fishing.
No matter the brand, all waders will eventually leak...or you will pee in them...one or the other.
Somewhere, sometime you will catch a fish that you weren't expecting.
If you are a fly fishing snob, eventually a group of angry bait fishermen will dismember you and drag you through your favorite hole.
Contrary to all reason, dogs can retrieve fish.
Despite what your wife or girlfriend says, size does matter.
Make every day on the water the best it can be...it may be your last.
