John Gierach, author of Trout Bum, Another Lousy Day in Paradise and 18 other books, will be inducted into the Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum’s Hall of Fame Oct. 10.
Also being inducted is Bill Elliott, an artist who has illustrated 38 books and whose work has run in all the big hunting and fishing magazines, including Field & Stream, Sports Afield and Outdoor Life.
Curt Gowdy, host and producer of The American Sportsman (and a member of 20 other halls of fame, as an angler and sportscaster) and Charles Ritz, influential 20th century fly-fishing author, will be inducted posthumously.
Gierach gave a talk at The Fly Fishing Show in Somerset, New Jersey in January. Here’s a report I did on that event for About.com.
