The Codfather


Marshall over at Midcurrent posted a link last week to a Boston Globe story about a Bean Town Sports Museum exhibit highlighting fishing legends, Ted Williams, Curt Gowdy and Charlie Moore. As a born and bred Bostonian I have to agree with Marshall that leaving Jack Gartside out of a wicked pissah exhibit of New England fishing legends is a huge oversight. But Charlie Moore, despite his bait chucking pedigree, is one funny fellah.    LINK

Twas The Night Before Caddis -


Twas the night before Christmas when down by the stream
The full moon looked out on a chill winter scene.
A lone trout was sipping a midge in his brook,
Untroubled by worries of fishers with hooks.

Bonefish Folly


No it's not another post about the Bahamian misadventures of EJ Bun.

People all over the world know him as "Bonefish Folley", the master bonefisher who has been one of this country’s most loved ambassadors.

Israel Rolle (AKA Mr Folly) recently received the British Empire Medal and has been nominated for a Cacique Award.

Mad About Gaddis


Gadabout Gaddis not only pioneered the genre of televised fishing programs but he also inspired many of those who grew up watching this groundbreaking show.

Gadabout's TV Philosophy

Let's get something clear: I'm no expert. I never have been and I never will be. I am just an average fisherman who builds pictures for the average fisherman. That's why I steer clear of expensive resorts while filming. I go only where the typical angler can afford to go. And that's why I use tackle that can be bought for less than $50. I don't want any advantages the run-of-the-mill fisherman doesn't have.

If our show has anything approaching what might be called a philosophy, that's it: unpretentious simplicity.

Above all my series is believable. It has to be. I film what happens. If I come up dry and don't catch a fish, that's what we show. If I get hung up on a tree, you'll see it. And if I slip on a rock, you'll see that too.

This site is dedicated to Gadabout Roscoe Vernon Gaddis - a simple man - a true representation of freedom, adventure and the goodness in people.
