This and that

Today is the second anniversary of the Issue # 1 of the Surfcaster’s Journal Magazine. Few guys thought you guys deserved your own publication. Most though we were just plain crazy. Hell, I still think we were nuts to do this.

What you see today, is a result of a lot of hard work by a lot of people. Our editors, columnists, writers, Tommy the Art Director and also many of you who made suggestions, and gave advice over these two years. I am not sure what the future will bring but I do have one wish. A hope that more of you will contact us at info@surfcastersjournal.com with an idea you might be interested in putting on paper. We are always on a lookout for fresh voices, new ideas. We don’t only cover how-to but instead we try to cover the sport of surfcasting as a lifestyle. Catching the fish is truly just a bonus some days. You might be a close friend of  a lure builder, you might have something unusual happen to you while fishing or maybe you visited  a place you want to tell us about. Our doors are always open…

This being a holiday season, I am sure many of you have a Christmas Wish List, either a  things you are looking to get as gifts or something you are buying for yourself. Care to tell us what is on your list?

My list is short. A trip somewhere warm where there are some warm water species close to the shore would be all I really want. I have more tackle than I can use, so anything warm would do. I am not a big fan of NY winters. After breaking three 7 foot rods in 24 hours last week I will look into replacing some. Story for another day..lol

One note, our STRIPERTHON 2011 contest, Junior Category in particular. We are not sticklers for rules here with kids. We will extend to this weekend for you to send us any picture of your child with this year’s surf caught fish, any species. Send it to info@surfcastersjournal.com. We’ll take a vote next week

 and last not but definitely not least

ZeeBaas is having their first self-service seminar on Sat, Dec 10 at 9:00 AM

It will be held at their shop 335 Benton street, Stratford CT

Ron will be demonstrating self service of the reel and answering questions.

He will be going over the different lube options, how to use the new tool kit they just came out with, and the different o-ring kits they now have.

As an added bonus, Gary Soldati will be there to brag about getting the first 50 with a lefty ZeeBaas!
