Seems that once again a drug maker is exploiting fly fishers; this time it is SYMBACORT and they have this pretend fly fisherman telling us how this drug helps him fish and shows his grand-kids with him stream side!

Unfortunately the dope has a flyreel mounted on a spin rod. Duh, I just as soon stop breathing than be caught dead looking like a dork on TV.

Seriously don't like being EXPLOITED by TV advertisers.... it's as though putting a fly fisher on the commercial lends great credibility to the product.

I have seen that also. I laughed as I saw him pitch the bobber and line out by hand and then land a trout.

Gentlemen: Maybe we have misconstrued this video as it relates to "fly fishing". I have taken a clip from this and added some notes that may otherwise change your opinion! LOL!

Ah, yes. Yet another left coast marketing gem. Why would the producer not think a trophy trout would rise to the presentation? After all, many land creatures out that way will swallow just about anything thrown at them. :biggrin:

Now on the otherhand, noted angler William Devane's commercial? Pure gold.:smile:

JF,

When I see those guys in the park, I call them poachers. Then I call the park rangers. Sometimes, they even catch them.
