  1. Looks like Secretary Zinke could use a properly rigged fly rod and some Patagonia fly fishing gear. Donate to my GoFundMe so we can mail Secretary Zinke a fly rod combo and a Patagonia vest.


  2. I don’t know about you Across the Pond U.S. fellas, but here in Britain, we (well, let’s be honest, make that I, me, for a long long time, about a number of high-profile, suddenly extremely defensive and argumentative Neo-Piscators when spotlighted) have a saying: “Couldn’t hook his arse [ass] in the bath.”.

    That has probably been lost in 3,000 miles of trans-Atlantic Cultural and slightly differing English language translation, but, hey, some of you might just get a non-standard Britfisher’s drift….
