Narragansett Surfcaster’s Surf Day and Peter Jenkins’ Stock The Box Fly Tying Expo help us prepare for stripers, albies & full tackle boxes. Both fight off winter blues and build a sense of community with anglers new and experienced, young and old.
Albies are in bigtime, from the Avenue’s to the Ocean Mist to those fancy Newport cliffs. Now’s the time, before waters get churned up since they’re sight feeders. When Lee passes us by and waters settle, hopefully albies will peel away from offshore canyons and join us along the shoreline. This week, get your tips to catch them while you can!
The 2023 BI Inshore Fishing Tournament returns with great sponsors, high value prizes and expectations for amazing fishing around the island. Entry money goes to the BI Fire Department and Rescue services, there’s a big party afterwards and loads of prizes, which will include bragging rights. What’s not to like?
Rosie and Dominic lead us down beaches, into kayaks and across fly tying tables. This week we celebrate young anglers and all they offer us. Somedays it feels like the world is burning so, let us introduce you to two remarkable young people who catch, laugh and share. We could all use a shot of their joy.
