Residents of the Talbot House, Men’s Recovery House, are in need of some gently used fishing gear. Any fisherman knows, there is nothing like wetting a line to clear your mind. Their current gear
is no longer usable. We are looking for gently used rods, reels, hooks, lures or other tackle, and hope some of our local fishermen step up to make a contribution”. If you are able to donate some
gear, please contact Gord Osmond firstname.lastname@example.org, or James Forsey email@example.com “
So any gear you could spare is greatly appreciated. You can drop any gear off at my house or at the flea market at the old Schwartz building on Vulcan avenue Sydney. Thanks in advance.
So please check back as I am updating on a regular basis.
Thanks and sorry for the inconvenience
After a long winter it will great to see you guys again. Looking forward to hear your stories.
With the decline of the Atlantic Salmon and the increase in numbers of the stripped bass locally you start to think, is this the way of the future? I think so.
With the increase of stripped bass in the Bras D'or Lakes over the past few years I thought I'd investigate. While doing some research I stumbled on a site - Stripers on line - which had a lot of great material. One thing I did notice was the amount of bass that are caught on lures which got me to thinking. Maybe I could do that. I love wood working and airbrushing so I gave it a try. Below is a small sample of the lures that I've made. I am trying to match the lures to the baitfish that are found locally as well as tried and proven winners that catch fish. Getting right in to this I even started making some trout lures. I'll post most when I get a chance.
