    Anyone ever run into a famous person while fishing?

    A friend and I rented a boat about 5 years ago and floated down the mainstem fo the delaware river. As we approached another drift boat to the right, a guy who we swore was Al Caucci was pissing off the side of his boat to the left. He moved his hands off his genetalia to wave hello to us as we passed by. My buddy shouted over to him, "How's the fish'n" and he responded with, "Not too good but the water is cold and deep". I'll never forget that day.

    thanks for stopping - bye

    I was fishing the main stem at Stockport several years ago and I was in the midst of battling a nice rainbow when this drift boat goes by and this guy with a camera is taking a picture of me fighting the fish. A month or two later this same guy posted the picture on this website. The photographer was was none other than Dennis Cabarle. That is the closest I came to someone famous.

    Well it wasn't on the stream, but I was in the motel heading to the stream
    when I passed a mirror and saw AK Skim also leaving the motel to
    fish the very stream I was.

    Like Al.. AK is a real piss-ah in a difference sence of the word.

    Ok-ok.. there are GIRL SCOUT TROUT lerkers here... so I have to explain.

    I found AK to be very funny....

    I should have asked for his autograph.

    I'll tell you what was pretty cool about that...

    This picture was taken on 9.6.2001

    I think you contacted me in 2003 some time. It was a while after I posted it.

    What was pretty cool was receiving an email from you asking about the picture then telling me the story about your friend. Damn what was his name, Bucky or something like that. I forget... It was a nice story that went well with the picture. Thanks for bringing it back up!

    Yup. It's my friend,mentor and superior fly tier Bucky Stearns. I was lucky enough to become friends with him in the early 80s and he has been so generous with his fishing knowledge. The guy on the bank was Howard from Scranton. It was a great day to be on the main stem, as always.

    Re: Anyone ever run into a famous person while fishing?

    While both of us were on a stream section assessment demonstration, I rode with Dwight Landis in his car (author of Trout Streams of Pennsylvania) without knowing who the hell he actually was in PA flyfishing circles! After the biologists' demonstration was over, Dwight was then kind enough to give me a personal tour of the area streams and tips on hatches, etc. before we headed back to the group at the PATU fall meeting several years ago. I just thought he was a nice guy from the area. When I got back the older guys obviously all knew who he was and kept asking me what I learned from him, etc. I was all nonchalant about it and asked "why they were so curious and well who is he?" They were like you're kidding right? Heck I was new to TU and flyfishing, so no I wasn't kidding. They filled me in. The next day I was with him again and sheepishly said "So you wrote a book huh?" He laughed pretty damned hard. It's always a funny story that I get reminded of every year.

    I see my reflection in stream every time I get out.

    I have run into Pat Dorsey a few times when hiking into Cheesman Canyon. Pat is somewhat of a celebrity here, co-owner of the Bluequill Angler and author and several awesome books. Also, I got to meet Rim Chung last year, the inventor of my all-time go-to fly RS2.

    Rim Chung sounds like a euphemism for some sort of health problem.
