Considered a genius by many — he wrote all the lyrics and some of the music for Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon,” which has sold more than 35 million copies — Roger Waters started fly fishing not long after the release of that famous album. His favorite things to do other than write music: fly fish, play golf, and read Cormac McCarthy. “The first words Waters barks down the line from Manhattan, where he is slightly red-faced but fresh from a victorious game of tennis, are: ‘Are those New Zealand trout nervous? When I’m in New Zealand I hope to go fishing for trout.'” Vicki Anderson on New Zealand’s Stuff.co.nz.
