 WHAT?! No wading belt?

  Ironic her last name is "Rivers".

Our friends at Montana Fly Co. tweeted the article this morning and it's been floating around social networking sites all day.

Fly fishing receives a considerable amount of attention amongst celebrities. Notable celebrities who fly fish (or fly fished when alive) include President Obama, Jimmy Buffet, Eric Clapton, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Ted Williams, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Harrison Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ted Turner, George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, Ernest Hemingway, Andrew Carnegie, Henry Winkler, Liam Neeson, Brad Pitt, Bing Crosby, Woody Platt (lead singer of the popular Brevard, NC based bluegrass band the Steep Canyon Rangers), Richard Nixon, and now..... Joan Rivers. Female fly fisherman are noticeably increasing, celebrity or not. Paula Deen was guided on an NC river several years ago. With all of that being said, celebrities (that aren't the "outdoorsy type") and fly fishing seem to always end in either choas or humility (or at least that's the pattern I've been seeing recently). On the other hand, sometimes it goes smoothly. In Joan's case, it was everything but smooth. I think Joan's dignity is floating around on that Wyoming river. She probably hasn't found it yet. Poor Joan. Read the full article complete with additional pics here.

I kind of wonder if it has something to do with Ashton Kutcher doing it. Joan Rivers seems like a tool to me and would gladly try something based one whether or not its "celebrityish". Then again, I do feel sorry for an old woman falling down in the river like that.

Might be... Seems to be contagious amongst celebrities. One tries it, the other has to.

Really interesting....I find the post very informative and your pictures reflects the joy you had while fishing in the Joan river.
