Ted Juracsik's life can only be properly described with one word: epic. Like Odysseus cast adrift from a country in ruins, Ted wandered Europe's Cold War refugee camps before finding his way to New York City. Listen to his remarkable journey from Hungarian-speaking soccer player and tool and die machinist all the way to one of our country's top fly reel designers, told in his own distinctive voice.

Special thanks this week to Marianne Papa and the Tibor Reel Company for their extensive help and cooperation.

Next week: don't miss Dan Blanton, on California striped bass and the wild and wooly fisheries of the Gulf of Carpentaria, Down Under!
