    Travolta does fly fish; however, there isn't a single piece of water in Santa Barbara with an active steelhead run anymore.

    Name droppers. Who are these people? Do I need to get out more? Read People Magazine? Watch more TV?

    Tiger has not had a fly rod in his hands for a long time, I take that back he fished for trout in Ireland this year. Even though he caught a steelhead on the Deschutes I would say he is not a true fly fisher. Mark O’Meara is an avid steelheader and trout fisher. Last count he had over 30 two handers and can cast them better than he can hit a golf ball.

    Sam Neil the kiwi actor is an avid flyfisherman who now resides in Montana in which he describes Montana to his Native Country(Kiwiland) similarities in the ff techniques. But Montana has more Public access and more rivers also more wild trout than Kiwiland so Montana is therefore better than NZ.

    Apparently all these "sportsmen for Bush" do. And I assume the sticker means Sportsmen for Bush and not sportmen for whoo hooo

    Just so everyone know bush appointed a timber lawyer who came up with the idea of counting hatchery fish along with wild fish to the noaa. Who needs the endangered species act when we have zoos. Oops, sorry for offending the Sportsmen for whoo hooo.
