Well put,MO. As a hunters ED insturctor, people always look at me as if I am an expert. I laugh a lot as I tell them, I learn something from the students in the classes and they learn from me. It works out as a pretty good trade, everyone wins!
I have been flyfishing off and on for thirty years and am by no means an expert, I consider my self a novice at best.
To quote my wife, a teacher for over thirty years, "A teacher who says they have nothing left to learn shouldn't be teaching."
She gave me permission to use that.
