Troutrageous unleashed a major comment firestorm by laying out some of the sacred cows of fly fishing that he thinks need to end… things like PBR, carp and go-pro’s. Now, I don’t agree with the whole list, but the PBR thing was kind of funny.
Got me thinking… there are some sacred cows that maybe should remain sacred, because they are kind of awesome.
Here are a few:
This is Fly. Yeah… some really interesting stories in a really interesting format. It might be promoted by everyone each time it comes out, but there is usually something I really dig in each issue. The photographs are great, but the writing is excellent and it is often from folks you’ve probably not heard of before. Keep it going TIF.
Yvon Chouinard. The founder of Patagonia, Yvon seems one step away from going native. He’s a master of sustainability and he preaches conservation both because it is the right thing to do and because it is good business. I might not always buy Patagonia, but I respect the beejuzus out of that guy.
Joan Wulff. Say something bad about Joan. Go ahead… try it. She’s badass.
A River Runs Through It. Man, people act like this book nearly destroyed all that is sacred because people read it (or saw the movie) and wanted to get into it to have their own Brad Pitt moment. Don’t hate. It is an awesome book. Beautifully written. The story was powerful and it spoke to people.
What else do you think should remain sacred?
