Fly Fishing People: Shelley Duncan

August 3, 2009 By: Marshall Cutchin

Corner outfielder/first baseman/designated hitter for the New York Yankees, Shelley Duncan has read every hitting book there is, but his real love is the quiet sport of fly fishing. “He spent his first full season in Class-A Greensboro, N.C., and found a love for fly fishing in the Appalachians. When he rehabbed for a winter in Tampa, he woke up at 5 a.m. to fish before his workouts. ‘It was like three months and I caught one fish,’ he said. ‘But every single morning it was a different sunrise, it was different weather, and there was just something that was beautiful about it.'” Chad Jennings of the Scranton, PA Times-Tribune.
