I can still see Mr. Powers in his blue shirt , sunglasses on top of his head munching away at his favorite breakfast of fat:howdy:

 

Yep, powder blue shirt......ascot......hip waders.......white/cream colored bill hat with his burnt orange colored lens sunglasses ….jigging east running water at Pips with a yellow banana handle Nautil..

 

Those were the days.

Yes indeed. Those were the best days ( mornings really ) of my life. I look back on - those not so long ago - days as magical. 

Not only was the fishing exciting and extraordinary , the fishermen themselves were and are some of the best folks I've ever known. We were fishing something like 500 - 600 hours per season. Loved every minute.

I miss you guys. Hope to see you this summer.

Angler,

 

Still have my office in Hyannis but I moved to North Carolina a few years ago. I'm a commuter now - airplanes back and forth. 

We opened a Veterinary hospital here so have been mucho busy with that the last couple of years. It looks like things have settled down to a point that I can trek back up to the canal this summer for an extended time. At least that's the plan. We'll see.

I'll certainly let you know.

You know if you have a travel trailer and you need a place to set up you can stop at the Dew drop Inn in Sandwich for awhile , you would even have a fire pit with plenty of wood. WEre only a short jump from the east end

Was joking of course.....

We all had it made back in those days. 

I'll always know, I fished with the best.
