Thanks for stopping by my site. If you have a question or thought about any of my posts, you can leave a comment directly underneath it. But here’s a warning. Some folks find “captcha codes” difficult to use. The big issue is this – it can be hard to visually separate the number “1” from the letter “l”. Look closely and you’ll figure it out.
You can also offer a comment, or question, by dropping me an e-mail at email@example.com. Since my address is a “.com”, your browser’s email filter may kick my reply into your Spam folder. So check, if you’re expecting to hear from me.

We are going to Alaska to fish in August and Chip Bates gave us your name for a little refresher course on fly fishing. We live in Lyme, Jeb works all week in Essex. Not sure where you are.
As I mentioned to Chip, I relocated to Florida and will not be back north in the foreseeable future. So I think I better pass. Sorry for the confusion.
Will miss you. Had a great class with you. Please keep blogging – your photography is moving.
Picked up a C-H 444 press for $25 with dies for 38 and 45 calibers. I did a Cerrosafe casting of my Mauser Sporter from North Cove to be sure of its caliber, as they said it was 8 mm but it seemed smaller. Turns out it’s a standard 30-06 and I have dies on order with CH-4D.
You’ll always have a guest room with Linda and I.
look’s like your adjusting to that horrible southern fishing ok. Ct’s loss is Fl’s gain. The book is starting to take off over 300 copys sold so far the reviws have been great, it looks like we have a winner. Your help was indispensable! Thank you.
Sounds like book is doing very well, but then again I figured it would. You did a nice job! Yeah this southern fishing is horrible. Too many fish, too little time.
Enjoyed your other books and want to add the new one to my collection. Where send check?
Thanks. I’m on the road at the moment, but send it to my attention at

Mark Kus hope all is well congrats on the new book I’m still in Old Lyme got married in 2014 bought a house off Mile creek close to the boat launch lol and Point O Woods.
We miss you up north nice web site.
Nice to hear from you! Congrats on your marriage, man. Off Mile Creek? Sweet stuff. Makes beacoup sense to me. Yeah, missing you guys as well. Often thinking about my days on the New England coast. Great people, great times, great memories. Honestly, if the striper bite had remained strong, I would have never gone south. Life is complex at times.
Yeah lol I hear you still see Mark Lewchick albies and bones keep me going
Good though we have had a good holdovers in the blackhall I was catching
Them ice fishing!
And its right by my house!
If you send me your email I can send you a video ice fishing for stripers!!
Oh does your son live in Ct?
I have seen a white jeep cherokee in the past at uncas lake and down by sound veiw
And I think its you!
Well if you come up in the fall or spring feel free to contact me for a fishing trip..
I have my Maritime skiff ready for bass blues albies or bones.
Yes my son was still using the white Jeep up until early last year. He now has a Subaru, an old Rover, and a Carolina Skiff. I’ll be back this summer likely by mid June. See you then. My email is email@example.com. Send along the video!
Be sure to get ahold of me like to get you out for a bone trip that starts early August at block or Albies..
Okay….I’ll sharpen my hooks! Haven’t caught a bonito in several years.
I’ve been searching for a chronology of Scott Rod models and I saw your blog on the classic Scott G. Do you know the model names, rough years, place of production and what the characteristics of Scott’s line? Whatever you could share would be appreciated.
Larry Kenney, a former employee going back to the Scott’s first days, is your best bet. At the moment Larry is a custom fly rod builder and you should be able to find him on the web. I believe he has also done a pod cast or two.
Hope that helps
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Ed. Glad the tailing Reds lifted your spirits, sounds kind of like the Holiday. Read an article in Nantucket Magazine and came across peanut bunker, guess mayden. So the ichthyologists have cute names for the boring Latin.
David married this last year, now to Seattle. Julia bought a home in Albuquerque.
Blessings to you back in CT.
You’re right. Besides the Latin, fisheries folk and anglers have preferred common names too. Menhaden can be called bunker, pogies and yes juveniles are known as peanuts. Kinda fun. Striped bass are stripers, rockfish, rock hounds, squid hounds, linesiders, and old pajamas!
So the kids are all settled into life, Great news. Hope all is well with you.
Bret to you you fishing at Trophy Run. I took your spot when you left but without the same success you had. It must be skill.
Would you email to me the picture you took of me with my “big fish”.
Pat, I’m just arriving home. And will end you the picture in the next few days.
