Hey - I have a striped bass that looks "very similar" to that on a bourbon glass I got for Christmas! Those things make greats gifts (even if you are buying for yourself!).

Stan, is there "ordering information" that you can share? I better get a jump on my Christmas shopping as Marie will not be able to keep up with the production.........

Rags,

Great photo of first light; it gives a whole new meaning to the term "time of the colors".

Andy,

Love the photo of Joyce Oakley!

Anyone wanting to order any, just send me a PM, and we'll work out the details.

(BTW, Mary, not Marie; I learned a long time ago not to call a woman, another woman's name )

I have all of Stan's wife Mary glasses. Even some custom specials where Joyce from the back cover of 20 Years and me from the front. These glasses are popular with company. Great to swagger over "I got somethin you ain't got."

There have been some really great photos and photos of paintings posted here. What a great idea. I don't know if I've ever seen this done on another web site except those dedicated to artwork. Great idea. Hear are a few more of mine:

Top: Photo - Tuna Stickboat at first light off Boone Island, ME

Mid: Tuna chasing baitfish - acrylic on canvas board.

Bottom: A beautiful Chet Reneson Print; one of my favorites.

For about ten years now, I have collected old photos of classic fishing scenes and famous people. Here are a few samples:
Clockwise:

1)Ernest Hemingway with the first non-mutilated Great Bluefin Tuna Taken at Bimini. Until then, sharks mutilated fish caught. Finally, they learned to fish a short line, horse the fish in while the boat backed-down on the fish. 1932

2)Hemingway practicing with Mr. Thompson at Bimini - sharks were so prevelant and attacked Tuna and Marlin hooked off Bimini and mutilated most fish until they often tried to shoot them and scare them away before they learned how to take them.

3)Florida Cracker leaving Ft. Lauderdale and heading out for Bimini - 1934

4)Helen Lerner being congratulated by Ernest Hemingway (c) on landing the first Black Marlin by a woman at Bimini. Richard Lerner(l), Helen Lerner(R) - probably 1935
