The entire blogosphere had a good laugh speculating about that reflection in Dick Cheney's sunglasses.

Check your Fly

By Rachael Crowder

This article is about the male dominated sport of fly fishing from a woman’s standpoint. I offer the example of my local, male-dominated, fly fishing club, noting that there are many aspects of this small ‘society’ that mirror the larger western society in a concentrated way which makes it a useful and interesting subject for study. Both hegemonies are structured in order to keep out the likes of me, a woman, and other persons identified as ‘other’ by the relations of ruling. It gives an opportunity to look at gender roles, issues of class, race and sexual orientation within the sport. I tell about my personal journey into the macho world of fly fishing, my struggles with the experience of competitive fly casting, the social construction of competition, and finally my decision to form a women-only fly fishing club.

"We're not better... we're just different, our form of entertainment is sipping cabernet and reading Shakespeare by the fire, while your entertainment is beer bonging a Rainier beer and looking at the pictures in a Playboy". 

Nice fresh perspective from a local Washington Fly Fishing member LINK
