A New Book by A Great Blogger

Not much going on in my little corner of the world right now. I'm not fishing much , so that really puts a damper on my writing here on my fishing blog. It happens , I'll be back to normal soon enough.

In other news , fellow blogger Shoreman (AKA Mark - you may have read his comments here on the blog before , great guy) has an awesome project in the works and he's giving everyone a sneak peek. He's doing something I will probably only accomplish in my dreams , becoming a published writer.

I have nothing but respect for Mark , and I'm proud to say I'm associated with him through blogging. I'll probably just wait and get a Kindle version , but I'm thinking about having him sign one to me as "The most handsome fisherman alive..."

Enough about me , head straight over to Mark's blog and see what all the fuss is about. I really like the title , but I'll let it surprise you. Go check it out and reserve your copy at

And , because I know Mark will see this , best of luck with the book man! I'm hoping to see you at the top of the NYTimes bestseller list soon!

Have a great weekend!

Roanoke Valley Optimist's 44th Annual Fishing Tournament on Smith Mountain Lake

Coming up in about a month is the Cave Spring Optimist's 2012 Fishing Tournament at Gill's Creek Marina on beautiful Smith Mountain Lake. I usually fish every year , but the jury's still out on whether or not I make it this year.

Our local news does little to cover the event except for making a token showing during the week of the tourney and to ogle the fish during the weigh in. The mailers the Optimist's club sends out just hit my mailbox a few days ago , so I thought I should probably put the dates and times up for everyone who has landed here looking for info lately.

This years tournament will be held May 4th , 5th and 6th , starting on Friday the 4th and running until noon on the 6th. Official winners will be announced following polygraph testing at the Marina.

If you need more information feel free to contact me HERE

Good luck!
