High Country… who wrote in our contest posted two weeks ago: “Fly fishing is the still-hunting of angling. The first objective is to see the animal before it sees you; without first sight, casting can be as pointless as shooting an arrow before seeing the deer. Tools that allow hunters of fish or deer to see better share equal importance.”

I like the straight-up analogy between still-hunting and angling. I do a lot of bow hunting for elk… and (obviously) a lot of sight fishing. The more I do both, the more I appreciate them for the exact same reasons.

High Country, e-mail editor@anglingtrade.com, if you please, and we’ll put you to work with those new Revo water lenses.

I’d like to add “well-done” to TM… my runner-up, whose self-depricating honesty deserves at least kudos. Aw heck, e-mail me, TM, and I’ll send you a consolation prize.

“I like to be able to see the fish I miss, just as I like to see the big game I don’t get. Without quality eyeware, I can’t see trout. Accordingly, I assume that my failure to get any sort of strike is the result of the worm dippers who cleaned out the hole on opening day. Likewise, with a poor scope, I assume that that the distant blur running from me due to my excessive noise is a doe or a spike buck, or perhaps, a dog. Yes, that’s it, a dog. Quality eyeware prevents me from lying to myself about my field and stream failures.”
