Yesterday, I was out on the "S" river, there were two Spey guys in the drift below me. One guy just down from me, snagged and pulled up to retie. As I came along side, I struck up the conversation, complimenting him on being able to reach the far bank w/o killing himself like myself (singlehander). He finishes retying, and asks if I wanted to try a cast or two? I couldn't turn it down. He gives me the run down on how its done,plus I've been watching for a hour or more and wishing my casts could be that easy. My shoulder aches after a good day, I was able to send a cast out into the drift on the first cast. The next ones didn't look like much and this guy looked as though he was ready to start fishing again, so I handed it back to him. I stood nearby watching enviously at his casting, asking questions and thinking of how I can actually afford this type of rig. That was really cool. Thanks to the mystery angler, I was so stoked that I forgot to ask your name, my bad, but thanks again. Your generosity got the wheels turning.
