“I shouldn’t have called fly-fishing dumb”

Billy Baker follows up on his fly fishing is dumb article

This unfortunate discovery occupied my inbox for much of the summer after I wrote an article in which I referred to fly fishing as “dumb” and “the most insufferable kind of fishing.”

I realize now that I was wrong to say those things, for fly-fishing itself is not to blame. Instead, it is the fly-fishermen who are insufferable and dumb, as evidenced by the sheer number who dismissed my portrayal of fly-fishing as inaccurate even though I made it clear that I never caught any fish, which is an extremely accurate portrayal.
