I'd settle for 94, not a bad innings. I remember Mike Connors from the remake of Stagecoach with Alex Cord in the John Wayne part.

Mike Connors was one of a number of Hollywood greats that used to come up here for the fishing. Victoria's Oak Bay Marina was usually their kick off point, with Bob Wright's charters as host. I stuck my head out of the cabin of my little cat boat in answer to a knock on the roof. It was Mike Connors wanting to talk about the design. A really affable gent, he left only when his buddies called him away. I think it was Bing and Bob Hope, on that occasion. That is it for today's namedropping.

Vancouver Island attracted many of the big Hollywood names for the salmon fishing, particularly the big Tyee salmon off Campbell River. John Wayne was the heaviest, in my book. He would have his Wild Goose delivered to Victoria Harbour and fly up for a nice friendly visit.

In Nov 2015 on the Chronometers thread, I mentioned that John Wayne and Errol Flynn were both keen members of Scarborough's 'Tunny Club' in the 1930s.
