âGolf is the cruelest of sports. Like life, itâs inherently unfair. Itâs a harlot. A trollop. It leads you on. It never lives up to its promisesâŠitâs a boulevard of broken dreams. It plays with men. And runs off with the butcher.â
Like a predominant number of fly fishermen, Colvilleâs Jesse Nicholas is a fishermanâs 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, itâs clear where Nicholas and his allegiances lieâitâs bamboo with his dry fly pattern. Nicholas isnât going to poor mouth the spin casters, or graphite and fiberglass. Different strokes and casts for different folks. Itâs just that he prefers angling a different way. No, Nicholas isnât going to take that bait.
