    My two BIGGEST things I have done so far - regarding this hobby:

    1) I took the first step, and actually STARTED in the hobby.
    2) I found internet forums that helped me a LOT in learning about the hobby, BUT, also learned HOW TO USE MY OWN JUDGEMENT ;) :thumbup:

    Increased flow was by far the most noticable improvement.
