The meaning of "angle"

"Angle" is one of those special words in the English language with multiple definitions...

As a noun:
  1. a corner whether constituting a projecting part or partially enclosed space 
  2. a) the figure formed by two lines extending from the same point; b) the measure of an angle
  3. a) the precise viewpoint from which something is observed or considered;  b) a special approach, point of attack, or technique for accomplishing an objective
  4. a sharply divergent course

As a verb:
  1. to turn, move, or direct at an angle
  2. to present from a particular point of view
  3. to fish with a hook
  4. to use artful means to attain an objective
I hope to explore the full meaning of the word "angle" in this blog... and hopefully this blog will "use artful means" to communicate the perspectives... or should I say "angles" of a fly fishing naturalist.
