A fishing blast from the past today


Recommended Posts

Years ago I went to a local fishing supply shop local and friendly. Hwy 7 and Islington; ‘Fishing Stuff’. They were great people, all family. They sold us bait at all hours and loaded my reels. They ran it 24/7 seven day a week. The family that ran it also worked other jobs. They finally closed 20+ years ago due to the long hours. 
Well it all comes around, my brother was redoing his tiles and I also needed some done and we were introduced, masks on. . . 
This morning they showed up, small job set up in the garage for power. .  .

he sees my fishing pictures on the walls and my fishing rods and lights went on. We have a common interest!!!! 

He was the guy who was the owner of Fishing Stuff! As he said you do look familiar! What a blast that was.

he has kept the loading line machine and loads of reels and parts and a lots of other stuff. I was shocked, he is the next door neighbour of my brother’s daughter who she put us onto him! 
My highlight of the week for sure.

Small World. Great story. 

JD too bad we can’t sit and have a glass of vino and some supresata and just talk. He still has his boat and does fish with his son and brothers. Many memories for sure on my part. i did make them an espresso.
