Interesting how this has spawned a different topic. How much does the way we choose to fish have to do with our own perception of the excitement or pleasure we get from it? Ira has said he enjoys watching the bobber go down. I would say that can be fun, but for me it is nothing compared to the feel of a fish slamming a fly and nearly yanking the line from your hands. You hear about this a lot as it relates to education, in the sense that there are visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners (though most people are a combination of the three). Me, I think I'm mainly a kinesthetic learner--that is, I learn by doing, by feel, etc. I wonder if those of you who enjoy fishing an indicator (above other methods) would consider yourselves to be more visual learners, or visual people in general? Just a thought.
