Flyfishing? I'm old, and I've been at this a very long time (not quite as long as Old Man...but long enough) and everytime I hear, or read, about another flyshop closing down, I get very concerned about the slow death of something that's been a big and wonderful part of my life for over half a century. And it's not just caused by the rise of the soul-less big box outfitters. It seems I see fewer and fewer flyfishers every season on the waters I've known for decades. The technology is better than ever, but the sport seems to be faltering. Is it it loss of habitat or, possibly, the loss of recreational time available to a population stuck in the rat-race of economic survival. I'd really hate to see flyfishing become the domain of only the affluent on private water.
