The spring weather is here and there is no better time to buy new (or used) fishing gear for the upcoming season. Every angler loves buying new rods, reels, tackle, etc but paying MSRP can be pretty tough on the wallet. Good thing there are events like the CCA NH Tackle Flea Market! Come out this Saturday March 12th to Red Hook Brewery in Portsmouth, NH to buy and sell fishing and boating gear. Ben and I will have a table setup where we will be tying and selling flies. Swing by, say hi, and maybe even purchase a few flies. Full details are below and feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. Hope to see you there Saturday!!
I spent this past weekend on Cape Cod with my wife. As if that wasn't good enough, I had the distinct pleasure of attending a High Hook wine tasting in support of Stripers Forever. High Hook Wines served an amazing product. Sarah, my wife, especially enjoyed their Pinot Noir, while I enjoyed the Pinot Blanc. Mark and Stephen from High Hook were on hand to serve and answer questions about their product, processes, and unique outlook. I fully support their motto: Love life. Go fishing. Care for the planet. Drink wine.
The event was held at Black Eel Outfitters in Dennis, MA on Cape Cod. You can think of Black Eel Outfitters as a one stop shop for the Cape. Imagine a surf lifestyle and beach shop, just replace surfing with fly fishing and you have Black Eel. John, the owner, is an avid angler and is enthusiastic about helping vacationing anglers find striped bass. You can find some nice Patagonia clothing for your significant other and also bring home a new Cheeky Mojo 425 for yourself! Be sure to check out Black Eel next time you visit the Cape. I would argue its worth a trip just to check out this awesome shop!
