Now and then, parking our butts in the La-Z-Boy for hours and watching fishing-show hosts catch fish after fish is as close as we can get to a fighting chair. So we called a few hosts from some of the most popular fishing shows-Poveromo and Sosin are tops with us, of course-to chat about fish, fame and…um, Muppets.

George Poveromo Host of “George Poveromo’s World of Salt Water Fishing”
