  1. Positive statements you could make about the Captain. You always knew he was around. He made is presents known. If he was fishing near you, some how, some time, he was going to have an effect on your day.
  2. Maybe make a agreement with some member here (on this site) that lives locally where you would launch your boat? I bet it would better security too.
  3. Ouch! Guess it's the holiday season!
  4. Post a picture.... It might help.
  5. Great read and the pictures are always top quality. Love reading and hearing about your explorations.
  6. Here Ted! He doesn't have time to respond to personal e-mails. There are just to many. A friend of his has helped him out lately keeping a few abreast of the latest news.
  7. Thanksgiving is only a few days away. Wouldn't it be nice to thanks Lefty on this holiday not only to what he has given to the sport, but to each of us individually? Maybe send your greetings, your favorite story with him, etc. Maybe post a favorite pic with him? He visits this board often. Bet he'd get a kick out of reminiscing old times with us.
  8. Good luck finding them. Years ago there were a few in Salt Pond in the back estuaries and coves in the fall season. I think now it's more a water quality issue of acid rain and run offs that cause their demise.
  9. Tangles? Ever take the back treble off of a walk the dog type plug and attach a short leader with a fly? I would think that would be more attractive and natural, than a wooden egg?
  10. That will work. Lot's of sparkle sure helps.
  11. The weather kept everyone home. We had a banner day today catching jumbos with nobody around. That meant many chances for us with no one putting them down.
  12. Yes! Albie's will still be around. I wouldn't put all my chips on the table for Block Island though? You'd be much better off rolling the dice on the mainland. In a few weeks the water temps should drop ten degrees. The fish will be moving, a little harder to catch, but you still have chances along the Narragansett Shore line from Monahan's Dock, south to Black Point. West Wall, Charlestown, even Quonnie on a flood if they have bait trapped. Fire District Beach in Weekapaug, Newport shoreline along Fort Adam's to Ocean Drive too. Pay attention to the tides and wind direction when selecting a locations. Follow the birds, bring a good set of Binoculars, get the latest intel.

  14. Before you invest... Might want to see and try a little casting yourself. Better still with someone knowledgeable to show you. Lot's of guys in the early 90's tried it after the release of the movie, "River Runs Through it" thought it would be great. Never mastered the stroke, had limited success catching fish. Gave it up real quickly.
