Every year about this time I seem to have the same conversation with the same intelligent people about what can be done to boost participation in fly fishing. Well Shane Bacon lays out what would undoubtedly be the best possible media event fly fishing could hope for: Tiger Woods (an avid fly fisher) lending a bit of his gravitas and magnetism to a TV fly-fishing special. “The guy could do a fly-fishing special and 20 million people would be glued to their TVs. (And, that special would probably be in high definition, as opposed to the British [Open] in two weeks).”
