"Mr Rock Cod"
Al Silver
  I came across this picture of Al the other day and thought it would be fitting to introduce "Mr Rock Cod" to members who never met him. Al was the guy who owned the bow of the boat on cod trips. He tied his own and now infamous "cod flys" and always brought his own squid for bait. He was generally the first to drop and the last to wind in. On most trips, he out fished everyone and was pretty darned tight lipped on why he was successful. Al passed several years ago and cod trips haven't been quit the same without him. Oh, and by the way, that jacket he is wearing was a true fishing jacket. "The only time it didn't look "fishy" was the day he bought it". 

Al was a Fighter Pilot in WWII and had plenty of stories about flying his Thunderbolt in Europe. I have no date or location on the picture, but take a look at Ron Casapula's reel. Boy, have things changed. Now Ron fishes small reels loaded with spectra.
