A MAN AND HIS 10 WT.
June 15, 2007 - It was a real pleasure to reacquaint with Union Springs, NY resident Mark Vanderhoof as he passed through Worcester recently on his annual pilgrimage to Cape Cod. Mark always makes it a point to visit the shop when he's in the area and bring me up to date on his current outdoor adventures. This visit would be a little more than social as Mark, along with fishing partner, Joe Reynolds treated themselves to spanking new Sage Xi2 saltwater rods, Mark a 10 weight and Joe a 9. On his departure I tipped Mark on a few areas to consider during his weeklong assault.
A cell phone call later that afternoon confirmed that Mark had indeed located the piece of water I had more than enthusiastically referred him to. It led him to pitch off the following e-mail…
"Hi Jim, just a FYI. I found fish minutes after I talked with you earlier. The first fish, which was also the first fish of the season for me measured 29". I landed 7 schoolies after the first fish. This was all close to the bottom of the tide so that's a good sign. Thanks for the tips. Love the new rod, that first fish gave it a workout. Best, Mark"
A few days later we fielded a very similar from Mark…
"Hi Jim, just a quick report. It's 2am in the morning. Just got back from Claflins Landing. Crushed them on the outgoing tonight, 4 keepers and another 10-12 nice, strong mid 20" fish. Great action. All on black rattling deceivers and the intermediate line."
Does my heart good to know that we got a brother onto fish.

Good fishing and safe
