Sepetember Monthly Meeting: Tuesday, 9/16/14
Location: Narragansett Community Center, Mumford Rd
Time: Doors open @ 6:30 p.m., meeting starts at 7:00.
Guest Speaker: Club member Richie Reich
Topic: His story of a 52 Pound Striper From Shore
Every angler dreams of having that fishing trip when everything comes together perfectly and you land that fish of a lifetime. That night happened last May for Richard Reich.
Called Richie by his friends, he grew up in Flushing, NY and fished from shore since he was six years old, fishing the east end of Long Island.
Seventeen years ago he moved to Narragansett, and since he already had the basic knowledge of a surfcaster, it didn't take long before he learned where and how to fish Rhode Island's coastal shores.
He plans to tell the story of that night last May when everything came together for his fish of a lifetime.
Come and listen to this great catch story from one of our members.
