See, in the Spring issue of TROUT Magazine, there was a little article about blogs written by an author I choose not to mention by name (for his own safety). Within the article, there is an inset; "Ten Fly-Fishing Blogs You Should Check Out."

The list contains the all the usual suspects, like top notch and well-respected blogs like Subterranean Trout, Choldy Mum, and The Fiberglass Book Report, etc, etc... but then smack in the middle happened to be this crappy blog. Believe me, I could not make up a such a work of fiction, even if I wanted to.
Now while I'm used to Troutrageous! being honored by the prestigious academic community - Ivy League institutions such as the Sports Medicine Schools and Zen Colleges come immediately to mind, I can only believe the author of the article in TROUT Magazine was either jet lagged, hungover, or enjoying one of those funny little cigarettes when compiling this list. Troutrageous! in a Ten Fly Fishing Blogs You Should Check Out....c'mon now! An April Fool's joke perhaps? Delusional journalism like this is nothing but reckless and irresponsible, and unfair to YOU the readers.
Geeze, after this list, can we really absorb anything TU puts into print without at least a hint of skepticism? The next thing you know, they're going to try to convince you that the Pebble Mine thing is a necessary evil for the future of our country...I mean who would actually believe that.....?
