The Betty Ford Center
by Jack Ohman
For Fly Fishing Dependency
"Honest, honey, I can stop fly fishing anytime I want." How many times have
we said those words to our abandoned loved ones? A thousand times?
A million times? If you really want to get your fly fishing back to sensible
levels, you'll need more than professional help . . . you need the former
First Lady of the United States.
The Betty Ford Center for Fly Fishing Dependency is located in Rancho Orvis, California, and will take you on the 12 steps of recovery to fly fishing sanity. This is not a cold turkey,
quit-fly fishing program . . . it's the path back to normal levels of fly fishing;
say, fifty times per year. Trained, compassionate staffers, all of whom were
fly fishing junkies who broke out into cold sweat if their copy of the latest
Orvis catalog was fifteen minutes late, will help you find a balance. The
six-month stay includes long periods of not fishing (up to two days in some
dire cases) and long walks with an unstrung rod.
Price: $67,00 per week. Includes straightjacket with a fleece patch. ~ Jack Ohman
