Default Re: Del Canty

I met Del Canty with my friend Jim Greenlee in the very early 1980s. Jim funded a number of fly fishing companies including Korkers and Islander Reels and Streamborn of Canada that went on to help found TFO rods. Del wanted Jim to fund his company that would sell lightweight float tubes.

Jim and I were on a fly fishing road trip through Colorado and New Mexico. Del met us in a parking lot on a trout stream. It was a bit surreal with Del showing Jim the features of the float tube and Jim with his cigar, just wanting to hit the river.
