Default Killing time

What do you do when you are waiting for the fish to strike the fly? It can be minutes to hours. Normally I bring a book (not a brick-thick book) with me for such time.

For me, fly fishing is very active. I'm busy either watching the fly or trying to figure out where the fish might be hiding. I also try to figure out the best way to get the fly to specific spots in hopes of getting a bite.

Just looking around at the wondes of nature and thinking about what joy and bounty it brings to us kills time while waiting.

I just like to relax and take in all of that beautiful nature that surrounds me. It's a great way to escape the pressures of life and get back in touch with nature.

I also bring a book or comic for such situation. Before I listened to music via headphones while waiting, but I decided that it's not a good idea. It is more distracting than entertaining.

I only bring a book when I'm fishing in a boat, other than that I'm up and around. I also look around at the scenery or looking for more fish to jump. I don't usually get bored with fly fishing. I do get bored when I am regular fishing.

Fishing is my downtime, I enjoy not having to think or even over think for that matter. It is my time to just "be" and enjoy it. Every now and then I do think random things like "I wonder if I catch this fish what he will be thinking when it happens", but I think we all do that sometimes.
