Joe Brooks on Casting Into the Wind Middle Fork Salmon River

Here's a great piece of film footage from the very first episode of the "American Sportsman" television show, shot in 1963, hosted by Curt Gowdy and featuring legendary angler Joe Brooks. Brooks gives an impromptu lesson on how to cast directly into such a wind. As you'll see, he was pretty good at it.

"This is as good as it gets. The food was excellent and your company was great. Meandering down the Rogue River and catching Oregon steelhead such as this was a real thrill."
