    Default MURPHY'S LAW OF FLY FISHING - Bob Boese - Sep 23, 2013

    Most everyone has learned of "Murphy's Law" which states: "If anything can go wrong it will go wrong." A pleasant tale says the name was coined at Edwards Air Force Base in 1949 after Capt. Edward A. Murphy had bad fortune beyond imagining during deceleration tests. Whether or not this is the true source of the expression [which may actually trace back to bad luck English farmers (sods) and their ill-fated crops (called "sod's law")], after six decades of fly fishing misfortune, it is apparent to me that there are several corollaries of Murphy's law applicable to fly fishing.

    There is more truth here then appears on the surface...
