The pace is unsual, so is the action of fiber, or glass rods, they are smooth and they force you to be smoother than when you are using a carbon rod, they force you to take a different ryhtm, and everything takes a different pace, everything seems to be at the same rythm, the right rythm. Even the fish are slower, the Mayflies are still groggy by the effort they had to make to  hatch or to spawn. Soon, soon , soon, it’ll be opening day. And a couple of months later, spring and mayflies will be there, again!
