Fishing Shows Not Real?
TimesUnion.com writer Robert Streeter provides insight into some of the short comings of the current crop of Outdoor television shows. He makes the point that often times the shows are just vehicles for their host's egos rather than real life representations of fishing and hunting. I would have to agree that most anglers shouldn't expect the nonstop action and huge fish that they see on the tube. After all, we really have no idea how much footage ends up on the cutting room floor. I would venture that most of us would be able to catch more fish if everywhere we fished someone paid the best local guide to show us how. Show me a guy who ties on his own flies, nets his own fish, and gets hung in a tree every now and then.
