Happy New Year Everyone,


With six more weeks to the Workshop there are 18 people registered already. Ads in the Long Island Fisherman will start running weekly all through January which usually draws alot of interest. Most of those already registered are from the metro NY area with several coming from south NJ and one or two from New England.


All the instructors have been lined up and are preparing their demos. Several of us are assembling blanks and all sorts of goodies for the fleamarket.


If anyone want more info on the workshop please contact me at

Here is a partial list of goodies I will be bring to the fleamarket:


Approximately 60 blanks from 6.5-8 feet long. All graphite. Most will be priced at $3 per foot with several slightly higher. The are blem blanks great for inshore fishing and will make great liht to medium spinning and conventional rods.


Madiera metallic thread in assorted colors. This is size A thread an is much better than the Gudebrod metallic.


6 inch black flocked cork foregrips with 1/2 inch ID hole.


Stainless steel spatulas for mixing glue and finish.


Super sharp scissors that are great for fine cutting around the workbench.


Kardol paste epoxy glue for gluing up grips and reelseats in quart sets.


As I put more goodies together I will update the list.
