The son of legendary sportscaster Curt Gowdy learned fly fishing from his dad on a nameless creek near Laramie, Wyoming. But these days his love of fishing has expanded to all tackle, though his philosophy hasn’t changed. “It was quite clear to me that when the reward is such satisfying angling, the relative merits of fly and bait seem unimportant. ‘Do what the fish want,’ Gowdy said, summing up his philosophy and our morning on the water, ‘not what you want them to want.'” Peter Kaminsky in The New York Times.
