A Tale of Three Fly Fishermen

Mike G

Recommended Posts

Fly fishermen come in three flavors. Flavors sometimes clash. Just imagine Thousand Island dressing on chocolate ice cream. The three flavors of flyfishermen are recreational, business, and competitive.


This article does a nice job of sorting out the different perspectives. For instance having the latest greatest umpteen modulus gear may not be top priority for the recreational guy even though selling it is very important to the fly shop. The competitor has to have that cutting edge gear to keep up. The competitor has to make the longest cast with the tightest loop and catch the most and biggest fish while the recreational guy wants to avoid that rat race. Can you see other ways these three could clash?
