Steelhead Time Capsules

Every once and a while, you can really strike gold on the interwebz.

For pennies, I was delivered a treasure trove of angling history, with 6 issues of the massive Wild Steelhead and Atlantic Salmon Journal.

Historic names and dignitaries of the sport.  Anadromous fish before social media. 

There's so much to relearn from magazines 25 years old.  Such a short time ago but lifetimes different in the way things are today with respect to tackle, lines, gear and the like...

The most interesting thing, the conflict of scarcity is the same then as it is now.  We're fighting the same battles decades later.

You'd think we'd learn our lesson...
