Presenting The Fly

Jul 02 2023 Published by admin under Uncategorized

We can offer a fly to a fish in a number of ways depending on whether we are representing a grasshopper or beetle or a frail spinner falling spent on the water. To splash the fly down hard delay the presentation stroke by dropping the rod tip to point at the water. Shooting line will only pile line leader and fly in a heap so we refrain from shooting in this type of presentation. To land a fly delicately on the water aim and release line at a point one meter above where the fly is to land and shoot line. If you do not shoot sufficient line the fly line will reach the end of the cast, stop, and bounce back.

The lesson is for a delicate cast you can’t shoot too much line whereas you can undershoot. There are other techniques for an advanced caster and these will be covered briefly as this book is designed around a learner. However if you want to refer to these techniques at a later time they will certainly make you more proficient. To accomplish long casts it is essential that the speed of the s fast enough to keep line in the air.

To increase the speed of a cast we can pull the fly line down with our left hand as we simultaneously lift the line from the water. To give the fly time to float downstream without drag, we deliver the fly at about 11 o’clock on the forward cast , leader and fly land on the water in a heap and a drag-free float is achieved until and leader reach the end of their travel. This tactic is often used to cast across a stream to where a fish is rising but there is a current between you and the fish. A normal cast would cause a belly in the line because the current is travel faster than the water where the fish is rising, drag would occur very quickly and no self-respecting trout is going to accept that! The side cast, when overhead vegetation prevents a normal overhead cast, or when a stiff wind is blowing into your face, the side cast produces the result you need. A side cast is nothing more than an overhead cast performed in a horizontal instead of a vertical plane. There are many more various ways find this fly as the main tool for fishermen’s. []

Gift Baskets – Ideal Presents To Suit Every Occasion And Every Taste

Jul 02 2023 Published by admin under Uncategorized

At some point of life, we all have faced the all-important baffling question regarding “What to gift” to someone. It may happen that we don’t know the person receiving the gift and therefore the apprehension to give anything of our choice which might not suit his or her personal taste.

In some cases the person you are buying for is so important that making a mistake when choosing a gift is unthinkable. Who would want to take the risk of upsetting their partner’s parents with an inappropriate birthday gift, easily done if you’re not well acquainted with them. Gift baskets can help solve this problem by providing a selection of items, some of which are bound to suit.

Essentially, a gift basket is made up of a bunch of different gift articles packed together as a single present. An actual basket may or may not be included in the packaging of such gift baskets. Such a decision should be made depending on what are the gift articles included, whom is the gift basket meant for, and what is the reason for the celebration and the gift.

Given the variety of choices in gift articles that can go inside a gift basket (pendants, soft toys, jewel casket, pens, photograph frames, greeting cards, chocolate boxes, mp3 players etc.) there is always the possibility to tailor gift baskets appropriate for the occasion and relevant to the taste of the person receiving it.

Gift baskets should be put together in a thoughtful manner. Mostly importantly, a gift basket should suit the occasion and recipient. Your two-year old niece won’t fully appreciate pendants and mp3 players in a baby basket for her birthday. Additionally, all the gifts in the basket should have a common theme. Even though shaving foam and a pocket calculator can be appreciated by the same person, they don’t make for a cohesive gift.

So the next time you have confusions in selecting an anniversary gift, a christmas gift, a birthday gift, a gift for your dad on his retirement, or a simple gift to make your lover feel happy; don’t you despair there is always a gift basket ready to be mixed and matched. And rest assured the thrill of opening a gift wrapping gets all the more better when there can be variety inside.

Introduction To Chinese Astrology: A Brief Presentation Of The First Six Chinese Horoscope Signs

Jul 02 2023 Published by admin under Uncategorized

Here is a brief presentation of the first six of the twelve Chinese Horoscope signs, their nature, characteristics and attributes. I will present them as ordered by the supreme Chinese gods that created Chinese Astrology and the Chinese calendar system. The first six Chinese horoscope animal signs are: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake. Here we go.

Rat (Yang-male nature)

The Rat is the very first animal of the Chinese Horoscope Cycle. A Rat is good at leading and conquering. Many famous emperors of Chinese history where Rats. Being able to charm others, Rat people are generally charismatic and full of passion. What makes them unique is their practical and dominant mind which gives them the ability to be organized, tactful and systematic. The other side of a Rat can reveal a very controlling person who always insists in doing everything its own way, at all costs. A Rat can also be very cruel and dangerous, especially when challenged. People under this major Chinese Horoscope sign are well known for their ability to use their master minds to exploit other’s emotions, feelings and thoughts.

Ox (Yin-female nature)

The Ox is a powerful Chinese Horoscope sign which symbolizes wealth and prosperity. Ox people are usually very hard working and stubborn. Being admirer of power and possession, this Chinese Horoscope sign like to depend on itself to achieve all kinds of great things. Ox people are also a bit slow when making their decisions, especially if they are given a lot of options to choose from. Once they decide on something though, nobody can make them go another way. You can’t easily get an Ox person to speak to you, but once you earn their trust, they will open their heart and mind in a very sincere and true way. An Ox can be a good and loyal friend.

Tiger (Yang-male nature)

Chinese astrologers consider the Tigers (not the lions) as kings of all animals. Tiger people are usually very attractive and persuasive. You cannot resist them easily and at the same time, you cannot attract their interest unless you try hard and be sincere. They like mystery, fairy tales and stories about courage and love. They will likely spend an adventurous life triggered by their instincts and strong emotions. Another important attribute of people under the Chinese Horoscope sign of Tiger, is the fact that they like surprises and out of the ordinary situations. If you want to have a Tiger as a friend then it’s up to you to make sure your friendship will last since a Tiger will generally find it hard to maintain any relationship.

Rabbit (Yin-female nature)

The Rabbit is well known for its ability to attract good fortune and be lucky. Rabbit people, apart from being attractive to the opposite sex, they are also very good at solving complex situations and problems. Many well known Chinese politicians and diplomats belong to the Rabbit. Another aspect of this Chinese Horoscope sign reveals tendency to cultural activities and the arts. A Rabbit hates fighting and engaging in aggressive behaviors or activities because of its peaceful nature. Last but not least, Rabbit people hate surprises or unpredicted results and you may annoy them if you try to involve them in any risky situation. That is why it is likely that Rabbit people will miss several good chances in their lives.

Dragon (Yang-male nature)

Dragons are mythical powerful creatures worshiped by Chinese culture. A Dragon symbolizes strength, health, harmony and intellectuality. Many consider Dragon people extremely lucky and blessed. People under this eccentric Chinese Horoscope sign are generally charismatic and gifted with great powers. It is unlikely for a Dragon to go unnoticed from a social meeting or a party. Their unique attitude and self confidence will always work wonders in such situations. Dragon people are also well known for their honesty and sense of duty. These characteristics can sometime work against them because others will tend to take advantage of them. If a Dragon is your friend feel free to confide in them.

Snake (Yin-female nature)

The Snake (Serpent) is strongly related with deep and eternal wisdom. Snake people are always enigmatic and maybe the most wise of all Chinese Horoscope signs. A Snake usually evolves to become a philosopher, deep thinker, theosophist, magician or leader of the back scene. Snake people love learning, reading and eating good food. They are also very concerned about their outer appearance. Their best attribute is their excellent ability to communicate with others and successfully engage in interesting conversations. Snake people love new ideas and innovative thoughts and actions, but they will usually reject advice from anyone but themselves.

Psychodynamic Therapy – Revisiting The Past To Heal The Present

Jul 02 2023 Published by admin under Uncategorized

No one on this earth is devoid of inner conflicts. True, there are a lucky few who have escaped having parents who screwed them up, but they still have inner conflicts nonetheless. It is a common notion in sociology, history, and even in modern psychobabble that the past affects the present. But is it really just psychobabble? Does Psychodynamic Therapy really work? Would it work on you?

Psychodynamic Therapy was developed as a modified version of Psychoanalysis. Psychoanalysis was developed by the oft-mentioned and highly notorious Sigmund Freud. You may have heard of him when people refer to sex drives, but his theories were more than that.

Psychoanalysis is the process where the therapist lets you talk and talk and talk, while he probes and tries to understand you and tries to let you understand for yourself how the events in the past shape your inner climate in the present. The only difference with Psychodynamic Therapy from Psychoanalysis is that Psychodynamic Therapy does not involve a heavy emphasis on dream analysis and symbolism.

Yes it’s true that the past experiences influence your current attitudes. You may have a pattern of tuning out your wife when she nags because she reminds you of your mother when she does that. Or you may be overly affectionate with your sons because your father never hugged you when you were young.

When we were in our teens, we experienced a lot of conflicts because of the changes inside us. It became worse for us when our parents would offend us in their attempt to discipline us. This hurt, this pain, sometimes get locked in the deepest corners of our mind in a process called repression. This is what Psychodynamic Therapy seeks to recover and eventually make you understand, with the ultimate goal of freeing you from toxic emotions and unhealthy patterns.

Psychodynamic Therapy does not stop the moment you understand yourself. That is only the start. The goal of the process is to use this understanding to bring you to a place of healing. Understanding is step one. Accepting that these happened is step two. Processing your feelings, reconciling yourself to these events and making steps to change your patterns form the rest of the equation.

Psychodynamic Therapy may not be recommended for everyone by the therapists, but I believe that taking the concepts within the theories behind it and applying it for self-healing can be an enriching experience. To be able to metamorphose into a better person, you must know and understand yourself. Psychodynamic Therapy can show you how.

Do you know that you can be a psychiatrist of your own self? Do you realize that you can learn the things that your psychiatrist does? And are you willing to take that route right now?
