Better known in fly fishing circles than Joe Paterno

Quote:

He has authored two highly acclaimed books, Joe Humphreys Trout Tactics and On the Trout Stream with Joe Humphreys, and many articles in regional and national periodicals. He has also hosted a nationally broadcasted fly fishing series on ESPN, been featured on three fly fishing videos (The Fly Fishing Series), and produced and been featured on four very well-received videos.

Mr. Humphreys has taught fly fishing for more than forty years, including directing Penn State's angling program for nineteen years. Some high-profile pupils include former President Jimmy Carter, former Vice President Richard Cheney, and basketball coach Bobby Knight. He currently teaches a weekend fly fishing course at the impressive Yellow Breeches Creek at Boiling Springs, Pennsylvania, hosted by Allenberry Resort located directly on the creek.

Your in for a treat . Have been to one of his appearances and the man is golden. He is and was far ahead of his time and the knowledge you will take back will last a lifetime. My neighbor took his course at Penn State and he doesn't fish. He loved it!

He'll probably mention the 20+ lb brown he lost fishing while night fishing the White River in Arkansas with guide John Wilson.

I am currently reading Dynamic Nymphing by George Daniel and Joe Humphreys is talked about extensively for his contributions to fly fishing/nymphing.

Maybe you should buy one of his books and have him sign that.
I have quite a few autographed fly fishing books myself and the authors are always very willing to do this
