Roy’s Fish Gallery

Roy’s fish gallery is in honor of all the people who took him under their wing and encouraged him in this sport.  His interest started as a toddler with his Grandpa Mac and Grandpa Jim and yearly fishing trips with Uncle Jim and Aunt Ania. Then continued with help from neighbors, Boy Scout leaders, cruising friends, local fishermen, the guys at the bait shop, and kind fishermen that he asked advice from out in the bay.  Thanks to all of you!

Roy has been fishing fishing fishing but because of rough conditions coming down from the Chesapeake and crossing the Gulf Stream, and then shallow water on the Bahama Bank, he hasn’t had much luck.  Recently we took Makai out on a fishing trip along the drop off on the east side of the cays.

    Great job Roy! Can’t wait to visit you guys.

  2. Nanny says:

    What a wonderful idea. And Roy smiles miles every time. Fishing is a great hobby that will make any place he goes more fun. What’s nice is that Roy isn’t afraid to talk to strangers and take their advice. Some children have a problem with “making friends” and I can see that’s not the case with Roy. Way to Go Roy! Nannie

  3. Jim says:

    Yeah! Well done. Can’t wait to hear about how you do it. Can’t recognize most of them. Alright, let’s go.

  4. Blasé says:
