You are what you associate with....
My dad was killed in Korea during the conflict in 51. My mom died of cancer when I was 6. I had the good fortune to be raised by my wonderful grandparents. Grandpa always said, "if you want to be good at something, associate with those who are good at it." If you want to be a good (maybe even great) flyfisher, hang around this website. It is a sure fire receipe for success.
I learn more about the world while talking to myself when fishing alone
