Date

Description
Seventy-seven color slides. Born in Saginaw, Michigan, Hanson grew up in Rockport, Massachusetts, where he learned to tie fly fish lines from his grandfather. Saltwater fly fishing became popular in Florida in the 1960s. The Folk Arts Apprenticeship Program began in 1983 with a NEA grant of $22,000. The program provided an opportunity for master folk artists to share technical skills and cultural knowledge with apprentices in order to keep the tradition alive. Apprentices must have had some experience in the tradition and agreed to train for at least six months. The first project director was Blanton Owen, later replaced by folklorist Peter Roller. The program was continued each year through 2003.
