Voluntary Beatdown Leaves Town
It only took a year to change the way people read, write and talk about fly fishing. Jason boiled it down and painted it black. He made me want to fish for winter steelhead, then made me feel bad about myself. Now, after a year, he's calling it quits.
A few parting words from the Beatdown.
Fly Times: I thought a bond developed between us!
Voluntary Beatdown: No. Not really. You're scum, Wallace; you did it for RATINGS. You don't give a shit about us or anybody else except yourself; that's why nobody gives a shit about YOU. That's why "helicopters" were not "deployed."
FT: Now what? What'll you do?
VBD: You'll never understand. Me and you, Wally, we're not even the same species. I used to be you...then I evolved. From where you're standing, you're a man. From where I'm standing, you're an ape. I'm here...I'm right here... and you...you're somewhere else, man. You say why? I say why bother?
FT: Now what?
VBD: I realized my true calling in life.
FT: What's that?
VBD: Shit, man, I'm a natural born killer.
