Fly fishing the Upper Owens River in the winter is fantastic. It is stunningly beautiful. Peaceful. Quiet except for the occasional piercing sound of a hawk. Clear and very cold this day. Not another person to be seen. The fishing went off.
Rod Serling’s last written words, in a letter from his hospital bed to Twilight Zone colleague Owen Comora.
Rod Serling suffered multiple heart attacks and underwent several surgeries. After a successful ten hour open heart surgery, he sadly suffered another heart attack during a second surgery and died on the operating table. He died on June 28, 1975, at the age of 50. If he was alive today, he’d be 92.
