Congressman Delgado makes first cast

Congressman Antonio Delgado of New York’s 19th District donned waders and a vest, and with the help of a few lessons from Jeff Phelan waded into Wulff Run near the bridge to the Catskill Fly Fishing Center & Museum to make the first cast of the 2019 trout season.

Delgado drifted a traditional Catskill Royal Wulff to commemorate the region and its fly fishing history.

After a few chilly casts, Delgado was invited to return to the Willowemoc when the weather warms.

He joined others at the CFFCM gift shop, where he read a proclamation in honor of soon-to-be-inducted Catskill Legend Agnes Van Put, who was serving her soups.

Degado also visited the Catskill Fly Tyers Guild at its Rendezvous in the Wulff Gallery.
