Matt you prick you stole or at least presented what I was going to for my FP before I did , I will have to put a different spin on it now!!

:laugh:

My superstition is only one and it is a small one, I think that if I never find something to laugh about while on a fly fishing trip, I will never have another good fly fishing trip.

So I laugh at getting stuck in a tree, I laugh at blowing a cast at a raising fish.. Those that fish with me will tell you I can be seen climbing a tree to get a 30c fly laughing my ass off.

If I take Fly fishing serious then there is no fun.. and as my signature says never a bad day fly fishing , some uncomfortable ones but never a bad day!!



Nice FP by the way.. :D

New rod superstition.

Don't take the shrink wrap off the handle until the first fish has been landed on it.

Cheers,

mine is simple - I dont want to tell other people where Im going to fish for  the weekend. Instead Im telling all the crap that comes in my mind - that Im visiting different location or even that Im not going to fish this weekend at all :D

Never show an open flybox to the sea.

When you fish new waters, introduce yourself before you start fishing.

If they're not biting, change retrieves first, then flies.

Peter,

I'll bet it's the beard.

Shave the beard = no fish for Morsie.

:p
