As Charlie Meyers suggests, the U.S.’s international fly fishing team represents more than a chance to participate in angling competitions that don’t require six guys dressed up like a NASCAR pit crew. It’s an opportunity to bring leadership to a sport that could use all the help it can get in growing and staying vital. “Question is, can a relatively thin and static U.S. fly-fishing industry muster the money and resolve to provide the necessary boost? Current sponsors include Simms, Scott rods, Scientific Anglers, Nautilus reels and Clear Creek accessories – arrangements that provide swell gear and some cash, but not nearly enough to crack the nut.” In the Denver Post.
