He was pushing is book on Letterman last night too. I know Dave fishes with Tom Brokaw and Michel Keaton. Maybe the Fonz has been welcomed into that group as well.

I think I saw an episode of 'Fly Fishing the World' where he was the guest. It was a few years ago and I cannot remember where they were fishing. You could tell that it was early in his fly fishing career. milt.

I read the book the other night in about an hour and a half. Not bad but not a ton of detail. More about his personal journey and photography.

I got it from my local library. He seems like a very nice man. I would not recommend it though, unless you like cute, touchy-feely, life affirming tales of life as a dyslexic and fishing expensive private waters.

I think Noiso is right on, I did enjoy it though being it was such a quick read. There was some stuff I almost just glanced over, but his love for going out and fishing is something anyone can get into.
