A blogger on BostonNow.com thinks he may follow role model Barry Bonds in pursuing feats of fly fishing that are impossible without a little chemical boost. “Soon I’ll be making 500-foot casts with my five weight. Next fall, I’ll be able to wade West Virginia’s Gauley River when it flows at over 3,000 cubic feet per second. My casting will be so accurate that I’ll land #28 gnats inside of a hummingbird’s ear.”
