Henry Winkler, the beloved Arthur Fonzarelli from “Happy Days” thinks Jews are more outdoorsy than stereotypes allow. He said this in an interview with the Baltimore Jews Times about his new book, “I’ve Never Met An Idiot On The River: Reflections On Family, Fishing, And Photography.”

Baltimore Jewish Times: OK, fly-fishing and Jews — not two terms that you usually hear put together. Are you contending that we’re actually more outdoorsy and rugged than stereotypes would suggest?
Winkler: Yes. Remember, 40 years in the desert? Right? That has to be in our DNA somewhere.[Laughs]
