A fishing pal that lives in Blacksburg mentioned this "boom" to me just this week during our phone conversation. I even see the surge here in the hills.Funny, after The Movie, I, and those I fished with, were convinced in a few years we'd see dirt cheap fly angling gear at yard sales and flea markets. Obviously, that did not materialize. My biggest concern is all this hubbub will result in more privatization of waters, and much of the sport will hinge on the almighty dollar. Perhaps it is inevitable. Our only hope, perhaps, is developing a drug for males, guaranteeing huge genitals like the Brookesia nana species of chameleon. Sporting a unit 20% of a males body size might take care of the masculine desire to learn fly fishing. All kinds of distracting aspects could emerge (new but unattainable wader design, displayed bravado, explosion in the porn industry, etc.). I have no idea if this might curtail the developing female interest in the sport of angling, since the wife has been telling me for years that size does not matter.
