Postcard from Sam Slinger


Last year while doing some pond hopping I run across this guy that looked a cut above the standard metro pond angler. After watching him throw laser guided casts along the shoreline I dubbed him “Sam Slinger” on a subsequent blog post. A few weeks later our paths across again but at another set of ponds thirty miles away from the last meeting. Before I could recall to him my tales of woe this year, he opens up with one sentence.

“Man, I am just killing it!”

We talk for a while and he offers his condolences to my stuttering, stumbling, flat out bumbling start to the season. He shared stories of his success and I shared tales of my utter disasters. He offered to shoot me a few pictures to post up on the blogilicious which is really hurting in my shameless bragging department. I chose this one because the fish is downright plump! Fine specimen and well done Slinger!!!

Good Luck and Good Fishing

Matt, I don't believe a word you wrote. Nobody does it like Matt, not even some guy that's Sam Slinger.

Thank you for the kind words and I wish that were true. This year every basser out there is kicking my butt.
