Einstein Was No Fly Fisherman

Albert Einstein is credited with saying "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results".  Apparently Alberto never stood in a river behind finicky midging fish.  As a fly fisherman, I will make the same cast, with the same fly, with the same drift, over the same fish until I finally match his feeding rhythm.  At that point, the results are much different.  Where as before it was skunk, the stink now comes off and I'm on the board.  The theory of relativity never comes into play with fly fisherman.  I can fish the same fly, with the same length leader, with the same size tippet, with the same drift, over the same fish as Sweets and never have success, while she picks up the fish and moves on.  I can switch rods with her and get the same results... now were talking insanity.

So Mr. Einstein, you can have your E=MC2, I'll take my F=MC93 (Fish=Midge x Cast to the 93 power). Pffft, Physicists.

Are you tired of us preaching Purple Power?  It works....

Good stuff! Einstein is author of my favorite quote, "Imagination is more important than knowledge."
