OprahYeah, yeah, it’s been beat to death in the media for weeks now, but Oprah and Gayle’s Yosemite flyfishing escapades—Part II, cooking by the campfire and riding mules, included—is airing today. Daytime soap fan and Field & Stream Editor-At-Large Kirk Deeter says he’ll be tuning in: “One way or the other, I’d suggest to you that, in reaching out to her massive audience and saying nice things about flyfishing, Oprah will do more to stimulate interest in this sport (and our National Parks), perhaps since A River Runs Through It hit the silver screen in 1992. Certainly more than a lot of companies (including some selling you gear, and not putting back) have done… more than making movies of ourselves to show to ourselves will ever do… and more than any writer ‘preaching to the choir’ can hope to accomplish.”Source Link
