Default 60 Minutes

Last week, 60 Minutes (CBS) had a segment on Cuba’s Jardines de la Reina (Gardens of the Queen).
It featured their unspoiled coral reefs and Anderson Cooper diving to explore and photograph the
life that exists down there.
You can see the video on the following:
Anderson Cooper talked about Avalon and had a conversation with one of the managers
There was a shot of the Tortuga floating lodge, and an angler in an Avalon skiff
catching, measuring and releasing a bonefish.
Andre even had Anderson Cooper feeding a Jotia out of his hand!
The focus of the program was the pristine and healthy condition of the reefs compared to reefs in
other locales.
Next time you visit Cuba, bring a snorkel!

Lefty Kreh did a program last winter at our club banquet on his favorite places to fish and the first on his list was Cuba.
He loved the fishing, the people, the culture and at the time was looking forward to going again very soon.
He mentioned that his first time there, visiting as a young reporter, he went out fishing with Hemmingway and Castro

Imagine the small talk on that fishing trip...

Even Hemingway and Castro would have been severely under-gunned in the story-telling department with Lefty on board.
