Would-be fishing writers should heed Deeter

Not just the rookies, either.

There are some of us who do this for a living for whom the occasional reminder that getting out and doing it is still the best inspirational tool, is no bad thing.

“Actually seeing the northern lights helps you understand Alaska.   When your truck breaks down on a dirt road in the middle of Wyoming, you have a new perspective on fishing in the Rockies.  After you hunker down against the bank to wait out a lightning storm, the ensuing Hendrickson hatch on the Delaware River has more context.  Watching a tarpon jump like a streak of molten metal 20 yards in front of your face matters more when you factor in all the sweat, and grime, and dollars spent, and gasoline fumes you sucked in en route to that moment.” - Kirk Deeter, On writing about fishing
