Henry Winkler – I’ve Never Met an Idiot on the River, Reflections on family, photography and fly-fishing

FROM THE PUBLISHER: An accomplished sportsman who meticulously records the measurements of every fish he hooks, Winkler has learned that his yearly trips to the river are not just about catching trout. More importantly, they’re about adopting the proper perspective on life. Or, as Winkler puts it, when he’s fly-fishing, the river acts like a “washing machine for my brain,” recharging him and reminding him that anything is possible.
On the river, Henry has grown to appreciate the support his wife and children give him, learned to listen, and developed the confidence to publish his outdoor photography in his first non-fiction book. An expression of the inherent optimism that stems from the simplicity of the outdoors, I’ve Never Met an Idiot on the River is an invitation to share in the realizations and achievements Winkler has found while fishing. Hopefully it will help you catch a few of your own.
Henry Winkler is an actor, producer, director, and author. He is probably best known for his role as The Fonz in the 1970s U.S. television sitcom Happy Days. His fishing exploits have been featured on John Barrett’s Fly Fishing the World, and he regularly recounts them during his various speaking engagements around the country. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Stacey, their three children, and two dogs. They fish primarily in Idaho and Montana.
MY TAKE: I really liked this book. It made me laugh and it didn’t take itself too seriously. If you like fishing or anything Henry Winkler’s done like being the Fonz on Happy Days or producing MacGyver…you’ll like this book too!
