The giant Salmonflies of the Western mountains are legendary for their proclivity to elicit consistent dry-fly action and ferocious strikes.
my 2 cents, or now 4-cents?!
now that's saying it!
I listen to Opera while tying (wife hates it, closes the door on me) but anything Classical really gets me in a calm place and at ease with the world...and peace of mind is in short supply as it is, sad to say.
I played trumpet, cornet and french horn in a structured environment through most of my pre-college years. I left that behind but continue to do music. Basically, if I can figure out it works, I can play it, after a fashion. Keyboards, guitar, mandolin and so on. Not very disciplined or structured though. Basically, what it amounts to is if you give me an instrument of some sort and leave me alone, I'll give you back a recognizable versions of the Star Spangled Banner in about a half hour...
I never really did anything with it that required long practices or a lot of discipline
You've not seen my flies...
