|Not where chocolate milk comes from. Duh, that's from chocolate goats.|
Here's ten for you that revolve around fly fishing. I have more, but a list of ten seems about enough.
Why now? Because I feel like being opinionated for a change.
FASCINATION WITH PBR - Pssst...cool Montana fly fisher guy, you're drinking the same beer attention-seeking hipsters do. The only acceptable PBR is this PBR.
BAMBOO RODS - Whatever...can I interest you in a rotary phone for $2,300? Wax this ferrule.
"SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL FLY SHOP" - Eh, not if they give crappy service...oh, and constantly whine about how "big boxes" & e-commerce are killing them. Adapt. Evolve. Move on.
CATCH MAGAZINE - It's a great picture book. Any reason why every blogger, tweeter, & facebooker has to announce its monthly release?
|A small sampling...|
GOLDEN BONES - I like carp, but enough with the glorification as the future of fly fishing crap already. I get it. They're big. So is your mom and I don't write article after article about her.
BRISTOL BAY/PEBBLE MINE - Okay, we heard you for the 14,023rd time. Enough. You're past the point of being tuned out.
DEREK DEYOUNG - Ultra talented artist, but if I see his stuff on another t-shirt or fly box or toilet paper holder...
|My art is mesmerizing...no?|
FLY FISHING BLOGS - Yeah, flailing a 5-weight doesn't mean you automatically should write - and guess what, nobody reads your blog because it's pretty damn uninteresting, just like mine. I blame the OBN. OK, not really. (Speaking of which, when's the OBN going to stop giving away fishing gloves and lanterns and put together a meeting or conference or something, so you know, us outdoor bloggers can...ummm...network?)
KIRK DEETER - Total respect for the guy...and he's originally from Pennsylvania. But writing for 107 publications/organizations/and trade rags may constitute as overexposure. Where are the comic books Deeter?
GO PRO CAMERAS - See fly fishing blogs above. You ain't Yukon Goes Fishing.
|Hawgdog55...you're doing it wrong.|
I'd toss tenkara in there (I love the tool, but not the "simple is superior" complex that often accompanies it) but it already gets made fun of plenty. A graphite cane pole can't be a sacred cow.
You got any sacred cows you want to pick on? I know you do. Let's discuss.
