2024 Fly Fishing Predictions Worth Chatting About

It should surprise none of us that 2024 will be the year that ChatBots gobble up more information about the things we care about, like fly fishing. And we should expect people who actually know nothing about fly fishing to flourish in words generated by ChatBots, and take credit where none is due. I can think of at least one person I know – dabbling in the fly business – who would do that, and probably already has done that, without any conscience at all. Can you spot the fakes? Fake it until you make it fellas. That will be a major challenge – to spot these fake stories in 2024 and beyond.

Generally, these Sunday Morning posts generated by ChatBots on Texas Fly Caster have been interesting and I enjoy the cutting edge of this technology that I have only began to tap into. The New Year should be one for all of us to refresh our curiosity – about a lot of things! That is the fun part of keying in questions and topics to a ChatBot – – seeing what comes out the other end, instantly I should add.


We all have a few inglorious days to recap our conquests, pick the best of, and crawl forward into the New Year 2024. You already see it in Instagram Feeds and elsewhere. It seems like the Best Of’s are flourishing this year, and I certainly have had one or two of those stories, typically about music, in past years. But mostly, I have tried to seamlessly blend one year into the next because the wheel turns too fast to count the spokes in the rim.

In a year chock full of nuts, “nuts” being my word for achievements, I would rate my full orbit of 2023 as having a few nuts in it. IT was actually PRETTY DARN GREAT. If I were going to do justice to the year, first I would have to be able to speak freely about it – which I can’t legally do for a few more years, but time flies fellas, and I just may live long enough …

If I were a responsible writer, I would have started the “Best Of …” lists a month ago, but as I said, I don’t typically get mired in doing those lists, and prefer to roll into a new year with not much more than a drink of Desert Door Sotol and a good night’s sleep. But, this year deserves more of a grand finale – compared to so many others. So subscribe for the posts, and get ready for some “Best Of …” stories to wrap up and send off 2023 in a Viking Funereal.
