Another couple of articles on the problems faced by the fly fishing industry just jumped out at me. While fly fishing companies seem to be racing to make more and more expensive gear, the sport is quickly becoming unattainable financially or at least much more difficult to participate in. James Marsh added his observations on his Fly Fishing the Smoky Mountains site in two different articles (second one here and check his website for the first). People are recognizing that the fly fishing industry is pursuing a broken business model but the question is whether or not the problem will be addressed in time.
