Fishing blogs pop up and disappear with such regularity that it’s hard to keep track of who is who or what. But most don’t really have anything to say, so when one that does comes along you take notice. And when a good one goes off the grid, you notice that, too. So I was bummed to see the Day Tripper is closing shop. Day Tripper had some strong opinions, and I didn’t agree with some of his posts, but the fact that he had original thoughts and wasn’t afraid to take on sacred cows made his blog one of my daily reads.
