Instructing Joan

“The goal was to catch cobia on fly. Whether he’s after bonefish or sailfish, Stanczyk is an excellent and enthusiastic fly-fisherman. He had no idea who Wulff was and I tried hard not to laugh when he started giving the slender, soft-spoken Wulff instruction in how to cast. Instead of telling off Stanczyk, she smiled sweetly and listened to what he said.” A Sun Sentinel columnist tells a funny story about fishing with master flycaster Joan Wulff, who will be inducted Saturday night into the IGFA Hall of Fame, along with Gary Loomis of G. Loomis rods fame, fishing writer Homer Circle, and others.
