One of the editors from our New York office has come up to spend a couple of days fishing and article planning. As usual, the fishing comes first.

So today I have to put up or shut up. We’ll be hauling my boat in about an hour off to a nearby lake where I plan to put him on some local largemouths. That won’t be easy in these August doldrums.

So can Senior Editor Colin Kearns hack it with a baitcasting rod? Can he put just the right twitch on a 5-inch, Green Weenie Zipper worm? Or even more important, can this old-timer get the young guy
into a good one no matter what?

Stay tuned, folks. I’ll be reporting in the next installment. This is more drama than we usually get around here, and right now it’s making me a little nervous.
