Take someone fly fishing today and they say: "This is nothing
like the movie"  Of course,  they're right!. Today fly fishing
consists of flipping a nymph 10ft with a 10ft rod.  Forget
about casting.  Some will only trout fish and never learn to
cast a fly rod.  Today it is tie on a nymph and catch as many as
you can as fast as you can,  and don't forget to keep score.  I
feel bad for young people today.  They will never get to see
what fly fishing was really like,  unless, of course,  they watch
the movie.  Marking their territory like a dog with red flags,  
trampling the stream and releasing trout that are sure to
expire anyway.
