Striper Surf Day

Well, it's a good thing there isn't another <"p"> in the word Striper! That would make for an interesting coastal activity in CT in March!

So, some might think it is still too cold and wet to golf right now. It is never too cold to golf. Unless there is snow on the ground and the greens are covered for the winter - a common sight in New England. Golfing in the cold requires some creativity and effort - like the people in Switzerland who choose to make Snow Golf a pastime.

The other day, I was driving over the Connecticut River. Upon initial glance at the river, the <'GRINDING'> of the gears began and the churning would not stop. Look at all of that water and potentially, FISH!

The other day, I received a flyer in the mail through a bait and tackle shop I once visited in Old Say. The flyer was promoting Striper Surf Day.
Here are the details:

  • March 8th, 2008 10:00am to 4:00pm

  • River's End Tackle 440 Boston Post Road, Old Saybrook
    Click here for directions

  • Live presentations, including "How to Rig an Eeel"

  • Shimano Reels will be introducing a new reel (Spheros)

  • ...and more!!!!

These events are fun because they allow you to interact with other fishing buddies and learn new things. Sometimes, you find yourself receiving an invitation to fish somewhere different. Kind of like golf - you meet someone, they play golf, and the next thing you know, you're playing at their club!

Fishing and golf are a lot alike and seem to attract a similar type of individual. A person who is at ease doing things alone or with others and is similarly comfortable with the peacefulness of each activity, respectively.

More on this later!
