I fondly recall the “good old days” of my youth, when one of the highlights of the year was attending the huge outdoors show that was held annually at the International Amphitheater on Chicago’s south side.
It was a phenomenal exhibit of all things fishing, filling the hall with booth after booth. The host and emcee for the event was John Bromfield. Bromfield was a movie and television cowboy who rode into the show’s hall on his white stallion, wearing a white cowboy hat.
