Local Call for Help
Sherri Cooney is a personal friend and is involved locally in feeding families who are having a difficult time. This is her plea and I can personally guarantee that any donations are going to be used to put food on the table for these people.
Please consider helping us raise money now while Sherri has someone who is offering to “match donations.” I asked Sherri why she is soliciting donations if the food is free and she explained that CHOP (Child Hunger Outreach Partners), a non profit, pays the PA Food Bank for the food to be given away.
We all appreciate your help, but most of all the receiving families thank you. Please help us make a difference in someone's life today.
Just in Turneffe Flats
We have a small group of friends at Turneffe Flats Lodge in Belize this week. They are part of a group that was rescheduled from our April trip and we would love to be there with them. They are catching bonefish, jumping tarpon, and having a beautiful week of weather. Last report was one small permit landed and others sited. We'll have more next week, but it sounds like a great week to be in the salt!
A Nod to Vince
Awhile back MidCurrent ran a nice tribute to Vince Marinaro, author of “A Modern Dry Fly Code” (1950) and “In the Ring of the Rise” (1976). There's no denying that these books inspired anglers to think more carefully about trout behavior and small flies and terrestrials to tempt trout.
Barry and Vince were friends and shortly after we were married, Vince came to visit and fish with Barry for a few days. It was very early (emphasis here!) in my fly fishing career and of course I had no idea who Vince was and truth be known, I only remember him as a grouchy old man. Perhaps partly due to the fact that his car broke down while he was here and I had to take him where he wanted to go because apparently Barry wouldn't stop fishing to do it (I can't remember for sure). Anyway, that's neither here nor there. This is a nice tribute and we hope you enjoy it.
Thank you Bob Romano and MidCurrent.
