The Fonz is a Fly Fishing Fan!

Quote

As he enters his mid seventies, Henry Winkler is experiencing an impressive late-career renaissance. Last year, he won his first ever Emmy Award for his supporting role as acting coach Gene Cousineau on Barry, the acclaimed HBO show. Alien Superstar, the latest in a series of best-selling children's books Winkler has written with a co-author, Lin Oliver, was published in early October by Amulet. And he is set to appear in Wes Anderson's highly anticipated forthcoming film, The French Dispatch, the release date of which is yet to be disclosed.

All of these accomplishments suggest Winkler has achieved a level of confidence that seems to have been lacking in his professional life since Happy Days, the TV show in which he starred as hip greaser Arthur "The Fonz" Fonzarelli, ended its decade-long run 35 years ago. What accounts for his recent success? He chalks it up, in large part, to an unlikely pastime: fly fishing.

Ed says December is fly tying month

It's no mystery why I start thinking about fly tying every year around this time.

The nights are getting longer and longer and I've convinced myself the fishing in December is never very good; although I'm not sure my fishing journals totally support that. I can remember decent December Blue-winged Olive and midge hatches from my angling youth, but I was tougher then. I'll admit I find it harder to amp myself up for a frostbite fishing trip nowadays.

Being an angler is more than catching fish

Anglers searching for a fishing access site in Montana, or a good place for one in the future, now have a new tool from Montana Trout Unlimited.

On Wednesday, the nonprofit unveiled an online interactive map of Montana's fishing sites. While Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks already has its own online fishing access map, Trout Unlimited doesn't just show access sites. Its map uses red diamonds to mark existing sites that it considers to be in need of improvement, and purple ones to show possible future sites — with the goal of bolstering public support for the Land and Water Conservation Fund.

Nelson Bryant, 'Supreme Chronicler' of Outdoor Life, Dies at 96

Quote

Nelson Bryant, whose lyrical columns in The New York Times for nearly four decades chronicled his love affair with fishing, hunting and outdoor life, and made him the dean of outdoor writers in America, died on Saturday in Oak Bluffs, Mass., on Martha's Vineyard. He was 96.

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/01/13/sports/nelson-bryant-dead.html

Quote

His first Times column, on Oct. 31, 1967, offered thoughts on pickerel vs. trout, and hints of the writer to come: "The thought of fly casting for a fish that bears a superficial resemblance to a snake may be more than some purists can stomach. Trout are beautiful and wise, pickerel are neither. However, a man cannot always chase rainbows."

North Country Angling: The legend of Ora Smith

Quote

Fly fishers are always looking for an edge in their pursuit of trout — a new fly rod or maybe a new fly line.

They are always looking for the latest and greatest fly to tie to the end of their line.

While the materials and the creativity for tying flies have never been greater than they are today, a look back in time can lead to the rediscovery of some tried and true fly patterns.

One of the old fly tyers who was both innovative and creative was New Hampshire's own Ora Smith.

Ora lived in the Keene area. He taught fly tying in adult education classes from the late '60's until the early '90s. He passed away in 2007

In the fall of 1832, Dr. Jerome V.C. Smith was crossing Mill Brook in West Tisbury when a disturbance in the water caught his attention. A passionate angler, Smith was stunned by the number of brook trout he saw and recalled the experience in his book, Natural History of the Fishes of Massachusetts, published the following year.

Fly collector Mike Kesselring will present the flies he's collected from locations around the globe at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 10, at Rendezvous Restaurant in Maggie Valley.

Quote

His fishing collection, meanwhile, includes more than 18,000 flies, 380 fly fishing books, 50 fly rods and 45 fly reels. Due to limited space, Kesselring will present just the international part of his collection, which includes handtied flies from far-flung places such as Tasmania, Argentina, Siberia, South Africa, Japan, Ireland and Norway.

The presentation is offered as part of Trout Unlimited Cataloochee's regular monthly meeting. A social hour and swap meet will be held at 5:30 p.m. ahead of the 6:30 presentation.

Is the episode with Belushi going to be a Weekend At Bernie's-like fishing show?

Dan Bailey's Fly Shop is under new ownership as of Wednesday afternoon, according to new co-owner Dale Sexton.

"We now officially own Dan Bailey's fly shop," Sexton said.

Sexton, owner of Timber Trails, an outdoor recreation and rental company in Livingston, purchased the fly shop in a 50/50 partnership with Kansas City business owner Mark Gurley. Gurley, who learned to fly fish from Sexton, has frequently traveled to Livingston over the past 20 years to partake in fly fishing.

Sexton will operate the majority of the business.

The sale applies to the Dan Bailey's brand name as well as the iconic storefront on 209 W. Park St. The sale also includes the store's current inventory as well as any intellectual property associated with the brand name.
