J. Kenney Abrames is a Rhode Island treasure. He is the author of Striper Moon and A Perfect Fish two of the seminal works in fly rodding for striped bass, but to describe Kenney as a striper fisherman is to sell him very short. He's a talented artist. First and foremost. He has sculpted a larger-than-life Jesus, created ornate theater ceilings and moldings, written a couple of non-fishing books, and a house full of paintings including every fly in A Perfect Fish.
Above all, he's a generous man. Always there with a wise word and encouragement. I am fortunate to call him my friend.
