Beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder. Or is it?

Courtesy of the tackle industry. I don't know whether to run away screaming...or just laugh.


  1. One day we will see "Darth Vader" anglers with drop down visors that change colour to suit the light conditions, wrist computers that tell you the optimal fly, and hooks that have on-board micro cameras that give you "real-time" video in your head-set.......

    God help us!

  2. Tony, have you read "Trout Fishing in America" by Richard Brautigan?

  3. Has anyone seen Loomis' fake scrimshaw on their spey rods?
    Give me a break!

  4. Yes Jim, I read it in the mid 1970s I think. Don't remember much about it other than Brautigan impressed me at the time. I look it up again.
