The Boston Herald website reminds us that the "Splendid Splinter" was a darn good fly fisher. A new exhibit at The Sports Museum honors three of Bean Town's own great sports figures and fishermen.
Although the city’s professional sports teams have long been the primary focus of fans, a new temporary exhibit honors the region’s outdoorsy side. Called “Gone Fishing: The Boston Sportsman,” the display honors three of the city’s famous fishermen: Williams, broadcaster Curt Gowdy and “Mad Fisherman” Charlie Moore.
