TU Podcast: CEO Chris Wood Interviews Henry Winkler
“The Fonz” talks about fly fishing, softball and his new book

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Trout Unlimited President and CEO Chris Wood interviews the renowned actor and entertainer Henry Winkler in this week’s TU podcast, available for free at iTunes or at TU’s website.

Winkler, probably best known for his work as “The Fonz” on TV’s “Happy Days,” is still doing television, and appears regularly on USA Network’s “Royal Pains.” He’s written a new book titled, “I’ve Never Met an Idiot on the River.”

Wood’s short conversation with Winkler includes the actor reading a bit from his book, and discussions on everything from fly fishing the Firehole River to the “Happy Days” traveling softball team.

“Henry Winkler is an icon of American television, and I especially appreciate that he’s a fly fisherman with a sense of humor,” Wood said. “We should all approach the craft the way Henry does.”
