That movie did more to ruin fly fishing than all the gill nets in the Sahara
Just after it came out all the rivers and lakes became over run by newbies equipped with expensive gear.
And it seemed to me like these folks kept their flies in the air more than in the water.
Also noticed how long distance casting was something of their badge showing off what they were taught in casting classes.
Ironic really since most fish are hooked within 35 ft of you.
