"Best" Fly Fishing Media Reference of the Week

Headline in the sports section of the Plain Dealer via

A.K. Rates 'Best' in Fly Fishing World

A gem of wisdom from the article:

Most credit the movie "A River Runs Through It" with rejuvenating fly fishing.

"Everyone says the movie was the cause of double-digit growth in fly fishing," he said. "We were enjoying double digit growth before the movie came out - but the movie got the blame.

"Because of the movie we thought we'd have more people to protect the resource. All we got was crowds, a feeding frenzy on the western streams. It might be the old timer in me speaking, but fly fishing was better when things were much simpler."
