    Becoming Ultimate

    WIKIPEDIA ON A RAMPAGE
    .. After languishing for years Wikipedia has caught up with Yellowstone Fishing. Thanks go to the heroic efforts of Mike Cline. Over the last six months the section has begun to take shape and promises to become a definitive source for "The History Of Angling In Yellowstone National Park."
    .. The bibliography is growing at a rapid pace and already contains an excellent assortment of references. The hatch chart will provide you with a place to start, and the major sources of contemporary fishing information are all listed. A brief introduction to 'the major waters' is included, as is a section on regulations.
    .. The section on West Yellowstone is still a little sketchy, failing to note that Bud Lilly, Bob Jacklin, and Craig Mathews all got their start by working at Eagle's Store, and that Sam Eagle was the first licensed guide in Yellowstone.
    .. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Eagle fly fishing tradition and the 30th anniversary of the Feather Duster Fly.
    .. Interested persons can contribute to Wikipedia and make this fine section an excellent reference. Contributors are finally joining in. We applaud this effort. GOOD SHOW!
