Herman Christian

Herman Christian was an old-fashioned outdoorsman and backwoodsman best know as a fishing companion of Theodore Gordon.  It was his skilled ability to read water, find big fish with a fly that gained the respect of all fishermen, including Gordon.  “You only need eighteen inches of float over a fish,” he used to say, having caught more big trout than any other three fishermen in the Catskills put together.  A frequent might fisher; he enjoyed using Gordon’s Bumblepuppy pattern for big browns.
