Joe Humphreys: No Pretense

October 5, 2009 By: Marshall Cutchin

Yesterday Joe Humphreys was honored by the the Spring Creek Chapter of Trout Unlimited and the ClearWater Conservancy with their Spring Creek Heritage Award, fitting recognition for a life spent teaching people of all ages how to fly fish. Among his students: actor Liam Neeson and former president Jimmy Carter. “‘He said learning to nymph fish was like, at the time, dealing with Congress. … It was difficult,’ said Humphreys, who fished with Carter in Spruce Creek.” Ed Mahon in the Centre Daily Times.
