Winston Moore to Speak in Boise

January 5, 2012 By: Marshall Cutchin

Winston Moore, one of the great pioneers in fly fishing for permit, will tell outdoors stories to a lucky crowd on January 12 at the Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center’s McCleary Auditorium, 1055 N. Curtis Road, Boise, Idaho.  Years before Del Brown made his mark on Florida Keys permit fishing, Moore had dedicated himself to catching the fish on fly and had, for a time, caught more of them than anyone else.  He often preferred to fish out of a canoe—another example of his individualism and passion.  “Moore’s fly fishing career also included more than 7,000 bonefish, 138 sailfish and more than 600 tarpon, including one that weighed more than 200 pounds,” reports Roger Phillips in the Idaho Statesman.
