Default Re: Book Talk: Fly Fishing the Striper Surf

Frank, I have had a number of observations about this in the past but for brevity I will gladly be the first to respond with just a couple.

1. The fly fishing community is a particular bunch. Very opinionated and many (if not most) devoted to the "fly fishing only" paradigm.

2. The striper fishing commnity is also a particular bunch. Very opinionated and most devoted to the "anything but fly fishing" paradigm.

As a result, the intersection of those who would be interested in a "fly fishing as a tool for stripers" book is smaller than one might expect.

I think it's for this reason that editors push authors in the direction you described.
