Why, to make you think of course!

Why do we worry about how we are dressed? Why are we worried about not having the latest gear? Why are we worried about catching fish? Why are we worried about another fisherman beating us to the river? Why are we worried about dragging our gear through the mud? Why are we worried about cigar ash burns on our clothes? Why are we worried about people who trespass? Why are we worried about waters we will never fish? Why are we worried about fly’s we have not yet tied? Why are we worried about leased fishing access? Why are we worried about fishing guides? Why are we worried about fly fisherman whom rakes gravel? Why are we worried about being politically correct? Why are we worried about the wind knots in our leaders? Why are we worried about how secure that knot you just tied? Why are we worried about just how much floatant we just applied to that dry fly? When did ordering coffee become a big pain in the ass for some? Why do we recheck to make sure we lock the truck before we head to the river? Why do we adorn ourselves with all the fishing gadgets known to man? Why do we bring our cell phones to the river? Why do we think of past people and pets we have lost during our life time out on the river? Why do we always say “one more cast”? Why do we not change flies more often? Why do people use bobbers on spey rods? Why do we care?
