You opened your mouth so let it all out.

Come on guys...you make a statement & you should follow up so everyone knows what you mean. I'm sorry that I'm so ignorant about this. Help me out.

Brad,

First, I've known Barry and his first wife Sandy since the early 70's, and I got to know Barry very well... at least as much as I wanted. I don't know Cathy very well, but I have met her a couple of times.

With that said, I won't use any names, I'll use a generalization and let you fill in the blanks...

Some folks are in this sport purely for the money. Some of those same folks are the most arrogant, back-stabbing SOB's you would ever want to meet. If your not a rich "elite" purist, they talk "down" to you... and it's not because they love the sport.

If you are ever in this neck of the woods, stop into Fishing Creek Outfitters. Talk to the current owner, or for that matter, anyone else who is in the store at that time, and see what they think. You'll get a earful. I feel sorry for the current owner, and a couple of the previous owners of that establishment. They really got shafted by "somebody"... all for the love of money... not for the betterment of the sport.

Of course, this is my opinion (and that of many others). Some folks may like people like that. Not me.

Now, it's good-by to American Angler, for the same reason. I admittedly miss getting Fly Fisherman, and since I think AA is the best of the ff magazines, I will miss reading it even more. I also saw that FTJ printed a beck photo in its last issue. I hope that does not become a regular thing. Thank goodness for The Drake and FR&R (with one mistake in FR&R a year ago).

If you really wanted to make a statement you should boycott all of the advertisers in both mags. Because if you buy anything from the manufactures that advertises in either magazine some of your money is ending up in the Beck's pockets. Just a thought.
