Fishing with Flair

Fishing will always be one of my favorite things to do. I've been spin casting since I was a little kid with my Dad and brother. And last year I got to learn how to fly cast out west. I have to say that fly fishing is a lot more fun. It's like driving a stick shift vs. an auto transmission (I actually can't drive stick, but I think that's what it would be like. If you can do all four of these things, let me know if I'm right).

Field and Stream Magazine put together a list of the Top 50 Fishing Lures of All Time. The fishing lure is another example of form following function, but with flair. The flair comes with good reason: fish like to eat flashy things. The Hula Hopper (left) and the Terminator T-1 Spinnerbait (right) are both really beautiful objects, suitable to be shown in a shadowbox on your wall.
