I really don’t know what I’m doing when I float a fly while I fish. I think of it as a sort of meditation, and I’m sure that I’m not just floating the fly in the air; I’m actually thinking about it while I fish. I don’t think of it as a technique, but more of a meditation. The reason I write a lot is because I find this method helpful.
Floating a fly is a technique. I use it regularly both for fishing and for meditation. I find that it relaxes my brain and makes my mind more receptive to what I’m doing, as well as allows me to really focus on the task at hand. In order to stay focused on the fishing, I usually add a little wind resistance to help keep me from drifting too far out in the water. On the other hand, floating a fly while I fish is an effective technique for meditating.
In my meditation practice, which can be found here, I use a variety of techniques to focus the mind. One of the most useful methods is to just sit and open my eyes wide. I try to let my thoughts drift in front of me like a plane in the sky. I can then just let them float through my eyes and then I can focus on my breath.
I really like this floating line technique because it’s very simple and effective. I can do it while I’m sitting on a meditation cushion or even while I’m lying down on a bed. The first time I tried it I was completely mesmerized—I couldn’t get my eyes to really stay open and I didn’t have as much focus on the breath. This time, however, I can both focus my eyes and just let my thoughts drift through them.
I am always amazed at how many people are amazed at the simple but effective floating fly fishing line technique I just mentioned. It’s like a new form of meditation technique. The only thing that is really different is that it is both simple and effective.
I recently read about another technique that is actually based on my own technique. I put two strands of fishing line into a large bottle of clear liquid and submerge it in my sink. Then I have a bunch of other fish, such as my dog and cat, that are all swimming around and eating the line. I can drift the line with the catfish, and then let the dog eat the rest of it.
I’ve been using this technique for several years now, and I’m really impressed with how well it works. It is more relaxing than any amount of meditation, and I’ve never once seen a fish die by the end. It also works great for floating a line right in the middle of a lake so you can have a fishing trip without having to worry about your line running out. And for the first time I’m not worried about dying, as I am with my fish.

The only thing you really need to worry about when you’re fishing is the amount of effort you’re willing to put into it. Whether you’re using a drift the line or a float the line, you should be getting the same results as if you were using a fly fishing reel.
Float fishing is more of a “trick” than a true fishing method. The line is still attached to the fishing reel, so you just have to have a good cast to throw it with enough line on the reel. On top of that, you need to have something to grab onto when you start to slow down and the line starts to get caught or kinks up in the line.
