Food for thought

I found myself daydreaming today as I sat in good ol' Atl traffic. My thought drifted off to the river and the indescriable (sp) feeling I get when Iam standing in the water and my daily world slowly begins to shed off like scales and suddenly "the zone" pervades my senses and the only thing you hear is the sound of the water and the only thing you notice is the fly you're tying on the leader or the line as it floats down the stream and you wait for the bump. It is a feeling that is personal and not really shareable....your only worry becomes the tangle in the tippet. The only thing that bothers you is the noise your reel makes. My float with Aaron and Joe was kind of like this...though their company was welcome and made the trip more enjoyable I realized that I lost track of them several times as we were floating..kind of felt like I was ignoring them but I was definitely zoned. Ever been there!!!
