Approximately 20 years ago I was asked by my friend, the late Tim Coleman, then editor of The Fisherman Magazine - New England Edition, to write a story about surfcasting on Block Island during the epic Striped Bass runs of the 1980s. What started out as a 1000 word article titled "The Snowstorm Blitz," quickly evolved into 30 pages and much too long for the magazine. Those initial 30 pages were the basis and beginning of this book. The project grew more and more as I found that I actually enjoyed writing about striped bass surfcasting almost as much as the act of surfcasting itself. This work is a culmination of 20 years of research and interviews, multiple edits and re-writes.
