Joe Brooks on Casting Into the Wind

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.

The conditions made it impossible to film the fishing show they were planning on, so instead, Brooks gives an impromptu lesson on how to cast directly into such a wind.

  1. This is a great example of casting by Joe Brooks. I had the privilege of fishing with both Joe and Curt when I was just a little boy. it’s funny but you don’t realize how lucky you are to be in their presence until you get older and see a video like this.
    thanks for sharing this video!
