IT’S MONDAY EVERYBODY

Hey even I make mistakes! I blatantly relocated the saltwater fly fishing portion of my recent trip from Port Aransas (I love you too), to the place I love the most – Port O’Connor, Texas, in this report. So it must be MONDAY! And it was Port A, not Port O. Watch the video for more fly fishing, or read my digression and decent into world “civilization” below.

Anyway, the world seems to have gone straight off a cliff doesn’t it? I can’t tell you how good it is to be far removed from civilization at a place like Port Aransas, even though there’s more to that story, more good and a little bit of bad in that story.

About the best thing you could do today is to cooperate with any police officer you see, or have an encounter with anywhere anytime. And to that end, I am taking time from a very, very slow schedule, to create a video that demonstrates how to cooperate with an officer should you be pulled over for a routine traffic ticket. This is common sense stuff that is obviously not being taught by parents, family or (I doubt your state requires it) driver’s education classes. I can’t believe we live in a world where common sense has apparently left the planet. Of course the video will not be posted here, but you can see and SHARE it from the YouTube channel for TexasFlyCaster.

Thanks for watching, and have a fantastic week.

Meet the Depressed – Mainstream Media That Is

Fun times watching the old mainstream media squirm as Jeff Bezos steps in to purchase the Washington Post, and begin the final turn from paper to digital – free online content, to paid. Make no mistake, good online content, at some point will cost YOU money to read online only. Or perhaps you will get a paragraph for free, followed by a click to the paid content (automatically debited a nickel or dime at a time. Let’s see … average 500 unique dimes a day here … awww, what would I do with an additional $20-thousand usd a year … take readers further, faster perhaps? Sounds like a good idea to me!

As a re-forming journalist (as in; I am changing my shape and stripes), I have been caught up in the death of newspapers for about 23 years now, and the death throes of paper news continue, with most of the smaller spasms (from small dailies) just about done.

With the beginning of change to large dailies the big TV networks take notice, examine their own navels and wonder if they are next to be bought by some internet mogul, some Mark Cuban type. Maybe so, but I think it will take a while longer.

CONTINUING TO STRIVE

Where this site appears to have made its mark is by striving to bring you along for experiences, and leaving you with the knowledge that you need to do these fly fishing things we want to do. After about six years of providing unique content – images, words and video, there’s not another website that specifically talks about fly fishing in Texas that provides a greater volume of content, or ranks higher than Texas Fly Caster. I hope you all still enjoy the free content, continue reading, continue commenting and continue providing ideas about stories on Texas fly fishing.
