So Long to The Fishing Wire

After more than a decade at the helm of The Fishing Wire—which I have proudly called “The Daily News of the Fishing Industry”—I’m moving on as of January 1.

I’ve enjoyed the ride. I’ve watched TFW grow from just a few corporate members to many dozens, while our daily readership has multiplied geometrically. And I’ve edited and published over 2,600 of these daily newsletters, including some 52,000 news items—never missing a deadline, I might add.

I leave TFW in the capable hands of Toby Lapinski, who came aboard the Fishing Tackle Retailer mothership last year after many years in other aspects of the fishing industry. Toby’s a whiz at social media as well as very knowledgeable of the many aspects of angling. (Be sure to add the email address [email protected] to get your press releases to him.)

I’ll be jumping ship to join BoatTest.com, the world’s largest video marine newsletter, getting back to the roots I put down for many years at Boating Magazine, Rudder, Sea and other boating publications.

Tight lines everybody–see you on the water.
