I just ran across this old column from 2004 in which Dave Barry describes a fly fishing trip. I've been a fan of his columns since high school so I found it really amusing.

I think he should have stuck with it a bit longer and mastered casting, so he could put the fly right over the trout's "bloop" and have the satisfaction of knowing the trout really did see the fly before rejecting it.
