  1. Another loss from our NoFo fishing family. Just received word that "Irish" Dave Browne has passed away. A true gentleman and friend who will sorely be missed!
  2. Didn't know her personally, but did fish with her on " Chappy" many years ago. Very nice lady and quite informative.
  3. James J. DelGiorno Post a Message of Sympathy Printer Friendly Mattituck James J. DelGiorno of Mattituck, New York died on January 22, 2022 at the age of 90. Friends may call on Sunday, January 30th between the hours of 2 and 4 p.m. at the DeFriest-Grattan Funeral Homes, 13805 Main Road (NYS Route 25), Mattituck, New York 11952. ** 11 miles East of L.I.E., Exit 73 ** Obituary DELGIORNO, JAMES, of Mattituck, aged 90, passed away on January 22, 2022. He was the much loved husband of Patricia, dear brother of Donald, and loving uncle of his many nieces and nephews. Jim was a proud member of the Marine Corps and a Korean war veteran. His family and friends remember his quick wit, and readiness to always lend a hand. A passionate fisherman, Jim spent almost every day surfcasting off North Fork beaches. His fishing pals called him T-shirt Jimmy owing to his signature beach outfit of a white t-shirt and khaki pants. The name took hold and it became his moniker up and down the North Fork. So T-shirt Jimmy, May you cast out where the birds are always working and the tide is always right. The family will receive friends on Sunday, January 30th from 2-4 P.M. at the DeFriest-Grattan Funeral Home in Mattituck.
  4. Sorry that I don't have any further details but I heard some sad news on the passing of a North Fork fishing icon Jimmy "T-Shirt". RIP Jimmy!
  5. Had both eyes done 20 years ago. I don't regret my decision one bit. Best of luck to you.
  6. Take a look at the Century 1025ss. It's 8'6" long and a very versatile spinning rod.
  7. I picked up a Piscifun backpack with trays on Amazon a couple of years ago. I also bought a cooler that fits where the trays go. It's holding up quite well. If interested look for the blue/gray digital camo . I think it was around $90+.
  8. Likewise, have the 4k CI4 and 5k FL. From what I remember, I changed out the drag washers and handle knob on the CI4. I was good to go on the FL out of the box. My preference is the FL.
  9. Here's my greatest catch! One of seven Albies that she caught that day. The old timers could barely get one.
  10. Have a 5000 married to a Century 8'6" SS. I used it for about 2 months this passed Fall and couldn't be more happier.
  11. One of the odder finds found fishing the Nofo this past Fall. Contacted DEC and they picked it up promptly.
  12. Bought mine last year and just assumed it was an older model. Thanks for the info. Have no complaints with performance or quality.
  13. This is the blue colored model which has been out for a few years.
