In this delightful collection of humorous anecdotes and heartfelt observations, Henry Winkler shares the joy and wisdom he’s accumulated while honing his skills as a fly fisherman. A accomplished sportsman who meticulously records the measurements of every fish he hooks, Winkler has learned that his yearly trips to the river are not just about catching trout. More importantly, they’re about adopting the proper perspective on life. Or, as Winkler puts it, when he’s fly fishing, the river acts like a “washing machine for my brain,” recharging him and reminding him that anything is possible. Winkler makes a habit of sharing his angling adventures with his wife, Stacey, and their three children, Jed, Zoe, and Max. The Winklers’ annual trip, where they can escape the busyness of everyday life, has brought them together as a family. On the river, Henry has grown to appreciate the support his wife and children give him, learned to listen, and developed the confidence to publish his outdoor photography in his first non-fiction book. An expression of the inherent optimism that stems from the simplicity of the outdoors, I’ve Never Met an Idiot on the River is an invitation to share in the realizations and achievements Winkler

Review:

PRAISE FOR I've Never Met an Idiot on the River
The most entertaining and introspective fly-fishing memoir I have ever read.”

- David Ondaatje, filmmaker and owner, R.L. Winston Rod Company
Henry Winkler has become a true fly-fisherman and anyone who reads his eloquent words will gain an appreciation of why this sport is so pure and perfect. His stories and thoughts remind me why I love fly-fishing so much.”

- John Barrett, host, Fly Fishing the World
Henry Winkler and I share a love of the outdoors and fishing. This is a great book that captures the impact the sport can have on our lives. All outdoorsmen should read it and experience Winkler's passion for the fishing experience.”

- T. Boone Pickens, legendary energy executive
Winkler’s message is positive and upbeat, making the book as much a motivational title as a fishing memoir. The important lesson he learned from his achievements is that with patience, persistence, and practice you can accomplish anything. Well done, Henry. This breezy, charming volume is for fans of celebrity memoirs and self-help.”

Mike Rogers, Library Journal
Winkler’s warmhearted spirit anchors the simple collection of Montana and Idaho river photos, reminiscences, and asides, resulting in a fantastic Father’s Day gift for any patriarch who owns a pair of knee-high rubber boots.”

Richard Horgan, MediaBistro
There is something for everybody in this book . . . The book is a touching story about overcoming personal problems to reach one’s goals.”

Kevin Brown, The San Francisco Book Review
