Screen legend Irene Dunn was a noted fly angler. A five time Academy Aware nominee, she is often described as the greatest actress to never win an Oscar. During the mid-1930s, Dunn was certainly among the most popular actresses in the world, and remained so until her retirement from acting in 1952. She remained an active philanthropist until her death in 1990. Below she is pictured in the mid-1930s fly fishing, and was obviously a discerning angler, as she fished a Pflueger Medalist fly reel!
