Beginners Guide to Fly Fishing
Rating - 5 (1 Review)
In many cases an angler’s life proceeds in a series of stages. To begin with he goes in for the simplest way of catching fish because at that stage his sole outlook is to deceive as many fish as possible at each outing, irrespective of the size or lack of cunning of such fish.
Later the angler may well find that he feels an urge to try something more difficult in the way of either fishing methods or fish.
Gradually he finds that there can be immense satisfaction in catching fewer fish, but of better size, possibly through mastering a more difficult method of fishing which, when he started fishing, seemed beyond his skill.
Eventually, having tried out various methods among various fish, most enthusiasts settle down to one, or perhaps two methods and apply them to the pursuit of one or two kinds of fish.
You have of course, exceptions. There are those who are dedicated to coarse fishing with bait and who would not waste time going after trout or salmon. You have the trout or salmon Fanatics who would not fish with bait for any fish and who have no interest in coarse fishing. Then there are the few who divide their time between coarse and game fishing.
For myself I am a trout and salmon addict and nowadays I fish only with the fly. That does not mean that I do not admire those who fish for other fish in other ways. Indeed I think that the coarse fisher of the English waters is worthy of the greatest admiration as a very sporting gentleman who goes to immense trouble and expends great skill to catch fish, all of which he returns to the water. What could be more sporting than that?
In my own case I caught my first trout on fly and it was at a later date that I enjoyed flood fishing with the worm.
So with salmon-my first fish was on a fly and it was in later years that I learned spinning with the difficult centre-pin reel and then went on through almost all the spinning reels that were manufactured. Eventually I turned to the fly completely for the simple reason that I love fly fishing better than any other method I have tried.
Today, as I see it, too many beginners buy a fixed-spool reel, find it simple to work and then, gaining an impression that fly casting is difficult, they go on bait fishing or spinning even though they feel they would like to try the fly.
I am not going to say that there is anything wrong in this but I do feel that many of our younger anglers today would like to try fly fishing if only they had someone to guide them at the start.
If in this way I can help even a few anglers to share the joy and the satisfaction that fly fishing has given to me over the years I will have been amply repaid.
Move the Ball: How the Game of American Football Can Help You Achieve Your Life Goals
Rating - 5 (2 Reviews)
Move the Ball draws parallels between football and life. The two are very similiar in that the principles needed to win the game of football are the same principles you need to win the game of life. Football teaches you how to use the strategies of the game to tackle any obstacle, beat any blitz, and overcome any blindside on life’s field. No matter what the situation, football provides you with the tools necessary to scramble through a field of defenders, move the ball forward, get into the end zone, and achieve life’s goals.
Achieving life’s goals comes down to this: hard work, teamwork, discipline, and dedication. In both situations, these principles build the conviction to drive that ball into your end zone and score. Defenders on your personal field intentionally want to stop the ball and limit your movement. You must recognize these defenders exist and have a plan to outmaneuver them. This book teaches you how to recognize the blitz, adjust to the blitz, and beat the blitz.
In football and in life, the players need to define the goals, invent the playbook, and execute the plays. Move the Ball draws upon the football playbook to show you how to do this and realize your dreams. Great players don’t settle for being ordinary. They have a strong belief in themselves and strive to be extraordinary. They have M.A.D. P.R.I.D.E. This book shows you how you can use the elements of M.A.D. P.R.I.D.E. to overcome any obstacle and win.
As human beings, we need challenges to value our accomplishments; to experience the joy and elation of winning against obstacles. A great person’s true character is displayed when he is able to face adversity, persevere, and accomplish his goals.
Life is about happiness. You only live once, so make every minute count. Life is about never giving up. Don’t stop playing the game until it’s over. Life is about getting into the end zone and winning. You will achieve greatness.
The time is now for you to make the change. Are ready to move the ball?
