Sig Hansen Remembers Phil Harris

Over breakfast in Los Angeles in February, Hansen discusses how he felt when Harris returned to fishing after the first health scare. “I was amazed that he made it back, number one,” he says. “I was relieved. It was a roller-coaster ride for everybody that knew him, so the fact that he made it back was impressive. But he’s a tough old bird.

“I thought that was nice and neat the way she did it, because it’s true for all the guys. You go to work, do your thing, come home, and you go nuts. They’re not a bunch of angels up there.” But Harris was also known for his generous spirit and big heart, and Hansen has taken an interest in the future of his sons, especially the youngest, Jake.
