Frank Moore

Tough as nails, gentle as a poet and determined as a badger, 90-year-old Frank Moore loves to fish. During World War II, he landed along with some 156,000 troops on the beaches of Normandy for the D-Day Allied invasion.  Following the war, he returned to Oregon, his new wife Jeanne, and his beloved North Umpqua River. Frank and Jeanne have spent the past 70 years living on or near the North Umpqua and have become an integral part of its heritage. Frank’s lifetime accomplishments as a fly fisherman, conservationist and veteran have earned him many awards, including the prestigious Chevalier of the French Legion of Honor and a recent induction into the Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame.
