Maybe just a total lack of interest?

"October 31, 2013, 11:57 AM|Fly fishing has a new face whose excitement for this staid sport is infectious. As Bill Whitaker reports, April Vokey is hooked on fishing. Watch Whitaker's report for 60 Minutes Sports on SHOWTIME.

Showtime? How many of us want to pay an extra fee (cable) to watch bad movies? Just a thought, but 'self promotion' will only take you so far unless you're fishing for Bass.

The world is what it is.

Near as I can tell, she's proven herself as not only an ambassador, but also an excellent instructor and flyfisher - way beyond the self-promotion stage. She works her butt off - I get tired just seeing her schedule - and has been in the forefront on several important wild fish and environmental issues in BC. Coming from a very modest upbringing (no silver spoon), she's carved a place for herself in the industry she chose - three cheers for her. Anybody who dismisses her as just another self-promoting pretty face isn't paying attention.

i watched her give a demo on tying tube flies. that gal can tye for sure.

good to see young people in the sport - April, Dave Skok, Jonny King, David Nelson, Amanda switzer, etc etc

their sex doesn't matter, the important thing is that there's a new generation to carry the torch and shake things up a little too.
