  1. I am lucky to have a couple of guides (Mike & Evan) who are lifelong family friends. In July 2016, I broke out my flyrod after a long hibernation and my buddy Evan joined me. My casting came back within minutes but my hookset took a little more time. After missing my third fish, I looked to Evan and said “Damn. My timing is off. I keep missing the hookset.” Evan simply replied, “Yea: by a minute.”

    1. Ha! Great story … so true. Timing is something for which you develop a feel … Well, at least you’ve got the casting down!

      thank you so much for posting!
