Bob Saile describes the disease and the cure in this piece about fly fishing for mountain whitefish. “Whitefish are the ugly ducklings of Western fishing, except they never turn into piscatorial swans. Ray Bergman, a famous fishing writer in the mid-1900s, visited Colorado’s Elk River and came back home to write about catching ‘grayling.’ (That’s what the locals called whitefish.) He received a deluge of letters telling him he wouldn’t know a guppy from a great white shark.” In the Denver Post.
