I quit measauring my casts about 3 weeks after I quit counting fish, and afte a few months of that I discontinues not only hook points, but fly line as well. I just really enjoy the motion, sometimes I go out and stand there with a lacrosse stick in the river in my waders and just cradle a ball, other times I'll have a spray rod, and pretends I am casting it. I'll get out and make a little coffee on the bank when I get cold. I absolutley stick checked this fucker on the ear so good when he lowholed me that he lost his footing and filled a his waders and drowned downstream in some sweepers he got stuck in.
