  1. Hey John! Nice to hear from you as well.
  2. Hello everyone. We are hoping you could join us again this year for the 17th annual Rocks Village Cleanup along the Merrimack River in West Newbury, MA. Coffee, donuts, bags & gloves will be provided. The tide will be right for American shad fishing that morning, so the plan is to meet early, knock out the cleanup (usually takes less than an hour), and do some shad fishing on the dropping tide -- so be sure to bring your rods. We will meet at Ferry Park in West Newbury. There is plenty of parking along the street. If you have any questions, please email Eric Roach at eroach1970@gmail.com. Hope to see you there!

  4. Just wondering what size VMC trebles are the best fit for the 2.5 oz Gibbs darter; I don’t have the original hooks to weigh. Thank you in advance.
  5. I’m currently tying tails on some of my lures and I was curious about the Super Strike Zig Zag (darter) — Is it possible to rig a Siwash with bucktail or hackle on the rear without killing the darting action? Thanks in advance for any experienced responses. Eric
  6. Many reasons why a cell phone is a good idea when out alone at night. The best is from a buddy who was out alone on the rocks and fell, fracturing two vertebrae. He literally crawled back to his vehicle. No phone.
  7. I could say the same.
  8. Safety, jackass.
  9. My girlfriend does the same, but she got some water inside the case last week at Cuttyhunk. I’d have better peace of mind if it were inside a dry bag as well.
  10. I should have mentioned that I was looking for a dry bag that was low profile so I could tuck it inside my wetsuit where it unzips in the front.
  11. I was looking at dry bags recently in a paddle sports store for my iPhone8+, but couldn’t find one that would fit inside with the Life Proof Fre case already on it. Can anyone recommend a dry bag that would fit? Thanks in advance.
  12. Jeeze Tony, what a simple solution! Thank you.
  13. I recently bought a bazooka rod case. Obviously there is nothing within the case to protect the individual rods from damaging each other. It looks like I’m going to need a cloth rod sock or one of those new expandable rod protectors. I can’t seem to find either large enough to fit over the stripping guide of a surf rod. Can anyone recommend a soft rod protector big enough for 9 to 11 foot surf rods? Thank you in advance.
  14. Does anyone know the thread color (any common manufacturer) that matches the color of the freshwater (gray) St. Croix Avid blanks? I have to order it sight unseen and I'm just looking for a little guidance. It's for an inconspicuous ferrule wrap. Thank you, Eric
