Heny Winkler is an actor, director, author, photographer and fly-fisherman. His latest book is a conversational memoir that relates his love for fly-fishing with his life and career. Henry discovered fly-fishing late in life, but it has brought him immense peace and satisfaction. Each year he counts down the days to his seven day retreat on the river, casting a tight line, catching trout, meticulously recording their length and weight in his journal, taking their photo, and then releasing them with a grateful smile.
Henry also discusses his struggles in school with dyslexia, from which he created the popular "Hank Zipzer" series of children's books about a dyslexic 4th grader. Henry's passion for fly-fishing is only exceeded by his love for his family and photography. Peppered throughout his book are his photos of family, fish, Montana and a number of other subjects.
"I've Never Met an Idiot on the River" is a very entertaining read that provides a look at the real Henry Winkler and the passions in his life: family, photography and fly-fishing. I loved this book and truly enjoyed Henry's conversational writing style. I highly recommend "I've Never Met an Idiot on the River" to fans of photography, fishing, memoirs, and of course, Henry Winkler.
