His mother, Joyce, was the person primarily responsible for teaching him how to fish, and feeding his fishing curiosity as a youngster. This story is about Joyce and the impact she has had on the Frasier family fishing traditions. Joyce grew up fishing with her grandfather, and has always had fishing in her life. She fell in love with the sport at an early age and has been at it ever since. After Dan began fly fishing, he took Joyce under his wing and taught her the ropes. That has become her new passion. She loves fishing with her children and her grandchildren, and she loves fishing on her own. Most of all...she loves sharing her stories and her experiences with the ones she cares about.
