The Fishing Club meets the 2nd Tuesday of each month. At each meeting, we have a professional guide speak about our favorite topics: fish, bait, lures and locations. Each guide specializes in the different species so you can really learn a lot just by listening to them and asking questions. If you’re not sure about what, just check out website, and click on the newsletter section and look for photos of our group. I’m in there with my great catches.
There are fishing clubs, and then there are fishing clubs. More and more, these institutions have evolved into virtual form as anglers find it easier to troll on-line for the latest information or reports. However, this wasn’t always so. At one time, fishing clubs dotted the eastern seaboard from Nova Scotia to Key West. Some were little more than shacks while others had expansive clubhouses. Each was supported by a community of anglers united in their enthusiasm for the sport and eager to share it with others. Alas, most are gone now, unfortunate victims of the changing times. However, a handful remain and a few continue to stand out as shining examples of their kind. Among the very best was and remains the West Palm Beach Fishing Club”.
Don Brown did a wonderful job putting together the episode on The Fishing Club for his show, Hawaii's Reel Stories on OC16. It includes several scenes from our shoot and give a pretty good feel for the movie. Check it out!
Bob Rich’s first book, Fish Fights, followed his attempt to qualify for membership in the Metropolitan South Florida Fishing Hall of Fame. In The Fishing Club, he expands his geography worldwide, and the result is a delightful and inspiring chronicle about his search to discover what drives all anglers in their hunt for fish.
