    Better known in fly fishing circles than Joe Paterno

    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
