Henry Winkler, actor, producer and best-selling author of 17 children's books is best known for his role as the Fonz on Happy Days.
What you probably don't know is that he is an avid fly-fisherman who favorite spots to fish are Montana and Idaho.
In I've Never Met an Idiot on the River, a delightful collection of humorous anecdotes and heartfelt observations.
Henry shares the joy and wisdom he's accumulated while honing his skills as a fly-fisherman.
An accomplished sportsman who meticulously records the measurements of every fish he hooks, Henry learned that his yearly trips to the river are not just about catching trout. More importantly they are about adopting the proper perspective on life. Or as he puts it "the river acts like a washing machine for my brain," recharging him and reminding him that anything is possible.
This book is about life, family, relaxation and love. Henry shares his love of angling with his wife, Stacey, and their three children, Jed, Zoe and Max. On the river, Henry developed the confidence to publish his outdoor photography in this, his first non-fiction book.
I've Never Met an Idiot on the River is an invitation to share in the realizations and achievements Henry has found while fishing. Hopefully it will help you catch a few of your own.
This book is the perfect gift for the man in your life - husband, brother, grandfather, son -whether they are a sportsman or not.
Winkler will be on Fish Talk Radio with Philip Friedman Outdoors this Thursday evening from 10-11pm. The show will air live from Angel Stadium on AM 830 Radio.
With Wahoo Rhapsody, Shaun Morey has gone from writing about exceptional fishing events to writing an exceptional book about an interesting cast of very odd characters. Atticus Fish, the hero and main character, is a lawyer hiding out from most of the world after having successfully sued all the major religious institutions for acts by God.
Having gained a fortune from the lawsuit, he spends his time righting wrongs and protecting ocean wildlife in his unique fashion. Dressed like a castaway from Robinson Crusoe, Atticus is forced to deal with unsavory characters to protect his friends and the land he has adopted as his new mother country.
Reminiscent of Fred Hoctor, Shaun Morey writes about the quirky characters found from San Diego down to Cabo San Lucas. The action is paced well and located in familiar places. This yarn is an easy read, and best enjoyed with a dark Modelo. I rate it 4 fins up.
