Radio Waves: Adduci talks fly fishing Kankakee to Beaver Island

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Capt. Austin Adduci tells the whys and wherefores of an innovative approach to fly fishing on southern Lake Michigan, the Kankakee River and around Beaver Island this afternoon on WKCC-FM (91.1).

You would not expect a south suburban union man, well at least I would not expect it, to become a fly fisherman, but Adduci did.

It began with packs of Marlboros as a teenager. A few years ago he decided to try guiding and formed Grab Your Fly Charters, which is still evolving.

It's everything from fishing for carp from a flats boat on southern Lake Michigan to catching smallmouth bass on the Kankakee. And now fishing around Beaver Island.

"Outside" airs from 4:30-5 p.m. Mondays on WKCC-FM (91.1) in Kankakee. Rebroadcasts of the show are at 12:30 p.m. on Sundays.
