But there are still pure voices. And great angles. I, for one, think the fishing world is more exciting now than ever, because we're better at it, and we're not afraid to challenge the ragged edge. Take flyfishing for mako sharks as an example. Zane Grey caught many makos. But he didn't do it out of a kayak, nor with a fly, nor release his fish. (He was probably too smart for that.) Bass writing is better now than ever. In 50 years, there will be a blog ... and a post ... and a comment ... that laments the lack of great writers like Monte Burke (Sowbelly). Mark my words.
