This page is dedicated to some local folks that I like and who have helped me in various ways. Most are involved in either the local tourism or sportfishing industry, so if you are looking for some help with a rod or reel, a place to stay, etc, a gift for your wife, I heartily recommend them without reservation or compensation.

My sister, Lori Lyons, owns this shop in Wickford, RI. Lori has a great selection of bath products, sleep wear, and fragrances. It’s great to place to bring your fishing- widow wife, or girlfriend, to reward her for putting up with you!
I work on her website and online store, so if you like the service you get from SRI – you can expect the same level of professionalism from Beauty and the Bath….because its me!
Call Lori (401.294.3576) if you need gift ideas, or to place a phone order. Tell her where you saw this link – she will even wrap it for you at no extra charge. She’ll have it ready for you to pick up or she will ship it for you. Click the link below to shop online.

The Old Town Inn
PO Box 1762 ~ Old Town Road ~ Block Island, RI 02807
Innkeepers Dave & Lucinda Morrison run this mid-sized B&B on Block Island – I’ve stayed with them several times and been out fishing with Dave on numerous occasions. The OTI is situated on four peaceful acres, away from town and the harbors. It’s a perfect place to unwind.
The OTI serves a delicious breakfast and afternoon hor d’oeuvres. Dave can even point you to some fish while you are there. (He’s not a guide though) Very quiet, clean accommodations, with private baths.

Snug Harbor Marine Service Center
410 Gooseberry Road, Wakefield, RI
Joe Mollica of the Snug Harbor Marine Service Center, makes rods for many applications but the reason I choose him to make mine is that he has fished the same places as me and understands a surfcaster’s rod requirements. I’m still using the first rod Joe made me. Winter is the best time to order a rod, but he builds them all year.
