PA Live! Blog of the Week: Barry and Cathy Beck's Blog

NEPA Blogs will be presenting the "Blog of the Week" on WBRE's PA Live! every Tuesday. PA Live! airs weekday afternoons on WBRE from 4:00 to 5:00.

Our PA Live! Blog of the Week this week is Barry and Cathy Beck's Blog 

Even if you (like me) have never been fishing and know next to nothing about fishing, it's hard not to be fascinated by some aspect of fly fishing. Whether it's the delicate and intricate art of fly-tying (and what happens to those flies after they get used? Are they discarded, or rinsed off, fluffed up, and used again?) to the precise technique for casting a line without becoming entangled in a hundred yards of monofilament, there is much that is intriguing about this meditative sport.  Barry and Cathy Beck's Blog  is all about fly fishing in NEPA and around the world. Not only are they NEPA-based fly fishing experts, they are also guides who host fly fishing trips all around the world. Their blog features many informative articles about fly fishing and plenty of magazine-quality photos. It's full of news, travel information, and reports from the field...well, not so much the field, as the river or stream.

Once upon a time the typical neighborhood newsstand would have hundreds of different magazines for sale, magazines that seemingly covered every possible aspect of the human experience. Print may not be dead (despite what Harold Ramis's character declared in the 1984 film Ghostbusters), but blogs have pretty much moved into this ecological niche, with at least one blog focused on almost every topic you can imagine. Barry and Cathy Beck's Blog has fly fishing covered. What topics are you interested in that don't have a blog yet? Do you know more than most people about this topic? Do you know enough about the topic to actually start a blog?

Then what are you waiting for? Get blogging!
