I count when fishing in lakes, but only counting the line down in relation to the water depth.
Devo's "Whip It". Modified, of couse, to "Strip It".Fishing the sound, where the game is basically blast it out there a mile and then strip all the way to your leader, I most definitely count. In fact, I’ve developed an annoying tic where I essentially start stripping to the beat of whatever random shitty song is stuck in my head. I hate it because it gets the song stuck in my head worse, but it’s pretty effective for randomizing the presentation and programming in some brief pauses (whole rests) as well.
Not to derail, but I’d be curious to hear folks’ optimal song choices for this application.
