    That level of "hotness" is dependent on the number of times I hang the leader on the one lonely weed sticking up behind me :mad: :beathead: bawling:

    Hey if you can touch the leader before you release the weed - that counts as a catch and thereby prevents a skunk. That's gotta be hot right Allison?

    I think FF and all of the associated side hobbies (like tying) is a lot of fun, and I'd say that I really appreciate a nice cast. Matter of fac, I must say that I really enjoy watching people do things they are really good at--you have to be in "the zone." I imagine as I gape in awe at good casting or tiny grovvy flies and am impressed with that proficiency, perhaps others can see that in me when I am doing things that I'm good at.

    Minx, I'm sure you are half-joking, but yes, I like what I see, but it doesn't make hotness where none previously existed.

    As far as avoiding the skunk in this manner, well, no, that still counts as a skunk. However, if you're hot, and you get skunked, you're still hot even then. Especially so if you cast nicely. :D
