FISHING TACKLE COLLECTION OF TONY HUSTON, SON OF JOHN HUSTON

Tony Huston, The film director John Huston's eldest son, grew up in Ireland fishing and fox hunting with his legendary father.  In addition to the trout stream which ran through St. Clerans, their family estate, they visited numerous other rivers and lakes in pursuit of sea trout and Atlantic salmon.  Subsequently, after moving to England, Tony took rods on many of the most celebrated rivers in Scotland and added to the family collection of fishing tackle. For Tony Huston Tackle, Mark “Description” in QUICK SEARCH Box in upper left corner, write in ”Tony Huston.”
