That's Gadabout Gaddis, "The Flying Fisherman"! His may have been the very first TV fishing show.

Ok your age is showing! We use run home from fishing to watch that on Saturday mornings, think I was about 10 at the time.

I'm not THAT old! :D I never watched the show. I've just seen some clips from it.

In the picture, it looks like he's holding a Shakespeare Wonderod, one of the first fiberglass fly rods. People are still fishing with them.

Watched his shows. Had a place in Bingham Maine but I don't think he was from Maine

I've still got one of those old Shakespeare fly rods somewhere around here.
