Geat video, brings back good memories. Nothing like a good dose of nostalgia on a Sunday.

I can see Rodriguez Key, the monkey key that Bill Curtis was talking about, from the house. I had a buddy drop me off oceanside of that key with a stepladder one day while he took his son "exploring". I must have sat on that ladder for 4 hours before they finally came back for me.

During the interim, a guide came poling by with a customer and we joked for a bit as he worked up the flat. I ran into him later someplace, and we started fishing together on his days off - a fanatic fly fisherman. I guess I was fanatic enough for him. We bacame good friends and fished a lot together after he retired until he died about 10 years ago.

I used to fish the Tamiami Trail from the bank with poppers for bass as a kid, whenever I could talk my dad into taking me there. He didn't like it because there were thousands of cottonmouths everywhere then, west of Krome Ave. At around happy hour you could always see at least half a dozen snakes swimming in the canal - water snakes and mocassins both. But, man, did the bass love the popper.

Never saw Ted Williams there, but he did show up with Bud Leavitt (Bangor Daily News sportswriter) at Cable pool on the Naraguagus River in Maine when I was fishing for Atlantics when I was 14 or 15. We had moved to Maine when I was 13. So I got a chance to shake his hand.

I saw him at the Miami Sportsman show in '57 putting on a fly casting demonstration with Jack Sharkey - a distance casting champion and former professional boxer. He was doing the casting and Ted was doing the talking into the mic. The following Christmas I had my first fly rod.

Sorry to ramble. But thanks for the video - that's a good one.

Ted Williams was a early influence on me as well
I saw him and Jack Sharkey cast at the '63 and '64 Boston Sportsman shows and still remember them opening the doors and the two of them casting over the length of the pool and out the doors onto Boylston St

I'm not a salt guy, but I enjoyed watching that very much. Thanks.

Thanks Norm,
Brings back a lot of memories to me. I started fly fishing the salt in 1968.

John,

If you ever get a chance, try it some time on some big species from small boats. It's a real kick!

Rip, I've never met anyone who's heard of Jack Sharkey. Watching that line go back and forth for the first time really mesmoriized me. Even my dad was impressed and he wasn't a fisherman.

I don't remember if I every knew who he was at the time, I was just a kid.
Since then I've looked it up.

Reminds me of a story that Jack Gartside told about meeting Ted Williams when he was a boy.

Jack.. "Ted Williams spoke to me today !"

Jack's friend... "What'd he say ?"

Jack... "Get out of my way kid"
