Our friends from First Light Anglers will be presenting on their ongoing efforts to restore a population of sea run brook trout and sea run brown trout to the Mill River and Parker River at our November club meeting. There are signs that their tireless efforts over the last three years are starting to yield fish!
I hope you are well and that you have not hung up your surf rod yet! Our striped friends are still in our waters!! If you attend our October club meeting, Steve Pappos shared some fishy spots worth making some casts into before Thanksgiving.
Our Die Hard Tournament is this month. Dress appropriately. Good luck. And turn in those slips!!!
Last month we exhibited at the Topsfield Fair. This event was very successful because of Larry Craig's super-human effort, our members, and our friends from the Rockingham Hunting & Fishing Expo and Coastal Angler. Thank You!

We will be at the Rockingham Hunting and Fishing Expo. Stop by our both to learn about our club and our year round fishy events! ;-)

Since her first cast, Allison has mastered several fishing methods. For example, when she casts from shore, the fish are at a disadvantage:

Member Dave Sunman and his friend Robert Hand went out on the thirteenth of August to Jeffery's ledge to winch up some cod and haddock for dinner. When they got to their hot spot, they rigged up quickly and got their baits in the water. Without warning, something fierce engulfed Dave's live mackerel and took off with a vengeance!!!!
