â€˜Golf is the cruelest of sports. Like life, itâ€™s inherently unfair. Itâ€™s a harlot. A trollop. It leads you on. It never lives up to its promisesâ€¦itâ€™s a boulevard of broken dreams. It plays with men. And runs off with the butcher.â€™
Like a predominant number of fly fishermen, Colvilleâ€™s Jesse Nicholas is a fishermanâ€™s fisherman--a purist, if you will. After all, while he is erudite in any debate over the nuances of graphite vs. bamboo fly rod and understands the reasons for both, itâ€™s clear where Nicholas and his allegiances lieâ€”itâ€™s bamboo with his dry fly pattern. Nicholas isnâ€™t going to poor mouth the spin casters, or graphite and fiberglass. Different strokes and casts for different folks. Itâ€™s just that he prefers angling a different way. No, Nicholas isnâ€™t going to take that bait.
