I got a free subscription to Field & Stream magazine from my credit card company and was surprised to see the amount of Fly Fishing articles I seen. I've gotten 3 issues now and every one of them has a couple articles. Anybody get F & S for the fly fishing article. The mag I just got had a decent article in it about Elk Hair Caddis' that was moderately interesting. It's just weird to finish a fly fishing article and on the next page they have an article on the "kill zone" of a whitetail deer.

Having followed the hook-and-bullet press since Ike was President, I can generalize: people who are dedicated anglers and who also have literary/journalistic interests have a strong inclination to be fly fishermen. It would be fascinating to triangulate the social, cultural, economic and historical factors that causes this tendency. Magazine publishers and editors are well aware that the majority of their potential market aren't fly anglers, but they can't help following their heart.
