my main man jimmy!

This video clip is courtesy of the Jimmy Kimmel Show is with Julia Louis-Dryfus (a closet fly fisher woman). I have been very fortunate to know Jimmy Kimmel over the years as a friend and an avid fly fisherman. Jimmy loves to fly fish! He’s crazy about fly fishing! I met Jimmy when he was just starting out on Jimmy Kimmel Show. I got the opportunity to design one of the Jimmy Kimmel logos back in the day. It was years later that Ken from the Fisherman’s Spot in Van Nuys asked me to take him out for a casting session. Ken knew that I knew Jimmy and felt comfortable asking me to help him out. This casting session came prior to his first invitation to Montana to fish with his friend, Huey Lewis. Needless to say, that trip changed Jimmy’s life forever! Fly fishing can do that to a person. I am very happy it did! 🙂   Click here for the video with Julia Louis-Dreyfus!

    Jimmy was right, that first fish was a Rainbow. Cool that you got to teach Jimmy casting.

    Al I’d be happy to take you down the stretch where Kimmel got his fish pictured in the video. We all need to work on Huey and a couple of his neighbors who are trying to limit access to portions of the Bitterroot contrary to the law however.
