I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Golf and fly fishing, both evolved from Scotland centuries ago, are essentially the same sport--one played wet, the other played dry (unless you golf like me, in which case golf is also a water sport). Think about it. They attract the same type-A personalities. You spend most of your time thinking and planning. They test your patience, and a big key to both is controlling your emotions. It's no coincidence that Charlie Meyers and I named our book "The Little Red Book of Fly Fishing." The one key difference is that golf is all about "how many," and you aspire for fewer, and fishing is all about "how," though you aspire for more.
