Thanks for the compliment. My idea of 'mindless' fly fishing is that type of fishing where I am unconcerned about matching the hatch, wondering if they are taking an emerger, and, if so, are they taking them in the film, just below the film, 2 inches below the film, etc, or are they taking a cripple or maybe just the nymph! Yes, in fishing terrestrials you still have to cast but even the presentation can be somewhat haphazard since terrestrials don't belong in the water and they act like it when they find themself taking an unintended bath. About all that is required is getting the fly on the water where a trout might be lurking. Give him an ant, a beetle, a hopper, or anything else that resembles a landlubber and you should see some results. That's my idea of mindless fly fishing.
