Afterwwhile I decided that I will get my stuff to Paul's boat and Paul will wake up soon. So I got my rods and other gears to boat. I went to cabin door and knocked carefully. Slowly opened the door and there it was the Sleeping Beauty, I asked if we would go fishing and answer was sleepy yes.
I went boat to wait and after 5 min we took off. Previous evening I had seen two set of babies close by and got chase from adult. So that area was our first target. Paul was not cheerfully as he usually is. I think that he was not fully wake yet.
I drove to bay and found set of babies. I got myself ready, we were getting slowly closer. Babies rise, no adult. Next rise, adult is coming also. Paul says that make a shot now. I kind of freeze, I reply that it is too far away. Hell no, it was too far away. I just freezed. We followed babies and soon they came up close to boat, even too close. Adult came too, I placed fly way too close and game over.
Paul just said laconisticly let's go to find other set. I was so pissed off about shot I didn't make. It was +35 celsius or more but in that point it felt that temperature dropped below zero.
Just last night I wrote FP and told that don't wait perfect opportunity, make a shot, it's victory or die. Fuck me, I waited better opportunity and result is that it never came with that set.
We easily overthink what we do, everything has to come like a second nature. It is not about catch, it is all about making shots. If you don't make shots, you won't catch.
Have a nice weekend and fuck me
