The Fonz is a Fly Fishing Fan!

QuoteAs 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.

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

QuoteNelson 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

QuoteHis 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."
