Dave Barry On Trout and Fly Fishing

April 18, 2009 By: Marshall Cutchin

Why has it been so long since Dave Barry’s written about fishing? He wants to deprive us of smiles? This excerpt is a couple of years old, but the New York Daily News thought it was worth recycling, and we agree. “We purchased fishing licenses and hired a guide named Susanne, who is German but promised us that she would not be too strict. Susanne had me and Ron Ungerman (Ha ha!) put on rubber waders, which serve two important purposes: 1) they cause your legs to sweat; and 2) they make you look like Nerd Boy from the Planet Dork.”
