With the countdown to my impending nuptials dwindling to single digits this week, I thought I'd do something a little different for my last two posts as a single Dude. I'd like to get a little more reader engagement going on the blog, so we'll start by compiling the 5 best feelings in fly fishing. Note that for discussions sake, feeling is different than "moment," or "accomplishment,"; we'll keep it sensory for this one. Also note that my list is based on my own experiences, which are inherently limited. I'm hoping that by the time I return from the honeymoon, it will need modifying.
1. The steelhead swung-fly grab
2. The power of a tarpon
3. Sticking the dry fly hookset on a 20+
4. Putting it on a dime at 60 +
5. The "thump" of running line against the reel on a well-executed Spey cast
