of the Month
and Souvenir Boutique
It's been a huge thrill for us, admittedly, to have - among others -
Lawrence Fishbourne, John Grisham, and Micheal Keaton fish with us. These
are universally famed people, who each in their field have accomplished
a high degree of worldwide notice and acceptance
of their talents, with long lasting and all-round rewarding and lasting
results. When it comes to fishing they know their stuff, too.
We are proud, John, that you fish-vactioned here on our Long Island flats.
A big thanks, Michael, for having gone after our Long Island 'Bones' with
us twice already. And thank you, too Lawrence, for having spent some easy
time on our island, on our Long Island flats, and for having brought some
family along too!
Whoever you may be, whatever you may do
when it comes to fishing
here, you can let your hair down, rub shoulders with the locals (and all
of them know their fishing, too!), fish to your heart's content, and be
what you prefer to be, cooling out on the flats and the next corner pub!
||David Kelley might be described as living
the American Dream, 1990s' style: write a screenplay, move to Hollywood,
make millions and marry a movie star. A former Boston lawyer, in
the last decade, he switched careers to become a successful television
producer whose shows are recognized for their quality as well as
receiving top ratings. He is best known as the creator of Picket
Fences, Chicago Hope, The Practice, Ally McBeal, Boston Public,
Boston Legal and Harry's Law, as well as several films.
||Mike Lawson was born and raised in
southeastern Idaho, Mike and his wife, Sheralee are both four-generation
natives of Southern Idaho. Mike has fished the local trout streams
in this part of Idaho all of his life, especially the Henry's
Fork. He taught school in St. Anthony for 6 years and worked as
a fly-fishing guide during the summer months. Mike and Sheralee
also tied flies commercially for many years. In 1977 they opened
Henry's Fork Anglers fly shop at Last Chance, Idaho. The shop
is a full service fly fishing specialty shop and outfitter with
the finest in flies, tackle, outdoor clothing and related items.
Mike remains as general manager after selling the business to
Mark Rockefeller in 1999.
His first book, Fly Fishing the Henrys Fork, was published
in June 2000. Co-authored by Gary LaFontaine, it is an all-inclusive
guide on how and when to fish this great trout Stream.
