Johnny? Johnny who?

Johnny Kronuch. Ran a tackle shop on the way to Montauk. He might as well have hung out a sign that read "Locals Only". It was the kind of place where you went it knowing what you wanted, grabbed it off the shelf or asked for it if it was behind the counter, paid and walked out. And whatever you did, you never put any tackle or money on the glass countertop near the register. :laugh:

DJ,

 

When I saw the name Johnny, I immediately thought of Johnny Williams.  As you know, he was also an ambassador of good will.

The second picture in post number one brought some memories back. I have a nearly identical Polaroid of my B in Law and Myself wearing our Biffs T-shirts with Biff in the middle - about 1972 on one of our visits from Canada. I still have the rod I bought that day- it is a 10ft white "Surf Stryker" with yellow and blue wraps. Reel was a Penn 105 - long since done for. Got to know him over the previous years as Mr Dennet, the cottage owner would send us over the Bridge for sea worms when he wasn't able to send us out digging for them on Sagamore Beach at low tide. Still have what is left of the Biff shirt along with my I Survived Hurricane Bob shirt.

I do not know if it was mentioned, but the shop near the bridge was his second location, His first shop was down at the entrance to the marina, along with Joes original fish market at the time. Peace and Prayers
