Seeing Mr Williams cast made a big impression on me as well.
My dad took the family to the Sportsman Show in Boston for a few years in a row when we were in the market for our first camping trailer.
I was much more interested in the programs happening at the pool area.
I remember that they had stuff like log rolling, alligator wrestling, bear wrestling, and of course the fly casting demos by Jack Sharkey and Mr Williams.
I remember that they'd open the doors and Ted would cast over the pool, out the door, through the lobby and out on to Boylston Street.
That was very impressive to a little kid.

I was a fan of the The Flying Fisherman, Gadabout Gaddis too.
That was must-see-tv in my house.

No it was definitely Pat McManus. Besides Retch, Rancid Crabtree was the old man who lived in a shack and liked his booze as I recall. I also remember the "Lower Forty" but that author's name you mentioned is not familiar. Maybe he took over that section from someone else. I'll do a search.

You're absolutely right, it was Corey Ford who wrote the great column "The Lower 40". I used to really like that column. Wonder why the author's name never stayed in my mind. Could it be because of the 1950 Ford 2 door I had?

Someone's going to have to step in here as I'm a blank on the name(s) but the precursor(s) to today's Salmon Trout Steelheader. First was like a small news paper then up-graded to a full on magazine (both went down the tube).
