Happy New Year!

Without a doubt, this will be a challenging New Year! The pandemic is raging across our country and there seems to be no let-up in sight! What really seems strange now is the shortage of vaccines! We heard that they were being rolled out during December, but for whatever reason, there is a shortage of them! Given the huge distribution network of the vaccines, it will take some time before all the bugs are cleared out of it! Hopefully, by summer, we will get back to something that makes sense in the world like fishing!

During this time, we normally escape the winter doldrums by going to the trade shows like the Garden State Outdoor show in January and the Boat show in February. Unfortunately, both of these shows have been cancelled. As of this writing, the Salt Water Expo has not been cancelled and is scheduled for March 19-21. This is a popular show and I would hate to see this show cancelled, but the virus may shut this show down also.

I am (and I know that you are too) looking so forward to the time that we can go on a nice fishing trip this spring or summer and not hear about the growing number of infections and new viral strains! Keep your chin up and pray to God that it may come soon!
