Casting aside warnings of deadly peril and the ongoing gunbattles just across the water, anglers are pouring once again onto Falcon Lake, the border reservoir that many insist offers the finest bass fishing in the world.
Good for Zapata; They've got something that keeps the people coming back for more. Perhaps we could learn something from them. I'm not suggesting trying to copy what works for them, but instead, focus on what could work for us. We need to develop our natural infrastructure to attract outdoor types. Kayakers, mountain bikers, and bird watchers need to feel like this is the best place in the world to do their thing.
