Unfortunately for me they concentrated on a stretch of water that I like to fish quite a bit. The South Platte right through Denver. Yes, the river is dirty and there's diapers, shopping carts and trash in the trees, but who cares... In my book fishing is fishing. If you love it, you do it when you can, wherever you can. My guess is if this had been about spin fisherman it would have never made the Wall Street Journal. Why is this even a story? Just seems like some dudes going out fishing close to home for a couple of hours. My question to you is why do fly fisherman get this bum rap of highfalutin, nose in the air sensibility just because they're not fishing for trout?
