This month we get to hear from Dr. Vic Tedesco. Included below is a short bio: I'm a native of New Orleans and graduated from L.S.U. med school in 1966 and am a board certified General Surgeon. After two years of active duty in the USAF, I practiced in Houma, La from 1973 until retirement in 2010.Coroner of Terrebonne Parrish from 1984 to present. Married to Madelyn and have five children. I am a life long fisherman and developed an interest in saltwater fly fishing in the mid to late 1980's. Have caught many species on the fly including Blue and White Marlin, sailfish, dolphin, yellowfin tuna, blackfin tuna and tarpon. Have had two past world records (black drum and ladyfish). I have multiple entries in the La. fly fishing state records, including first place dophin. I won fist place in the fly east division of the Louisiana Star tournament three years ago and was second the last two yrs. I was recognized by the La. cooperative fish tagging program for tagging the most speckled trout and total fish tagged last year. I was recently notified the I had over 17,000 tags since I began tagging (I had no idea). My main interest at present is inshore fly fishing for speckled trout and fish most often from my Grand Isle camp. My largest spec on the fly in La. was 6.49#s. Largest overall was 27 inches ( released and not weighed ) was caught in Jensen Beach, FL. -Vic Tedesco Everyone is encouraged to attend. It should be an interesting talk!
