The SPORTFISHING ON LONG ISLAND
is Presented at Other Types of Forums
Some of Capt. Jerry McGrath's best teaching experiences
have been his one night speaking engagements which have occurred at:
- public libraries
- fishing clubs
- trade shows
- fishing forums
These lectures consistently bring people together to learn about the
world of saltwater fishing as Capt. Jerry knows it.
|I can't say enough about how wonderful Jerry
was in every respect to my son (9 yrs. old). He gave him attention,
time, respect and positive feedback. Jerry listens and learns
from his students! He integrates everyone into his lectures. We
felt included, even though we're rank beginners. Capt. Jerry wants
to tell what he knows and his attitude is positive, warm, friendly,
excited and, at the same time, relaxed. He has a wealth of information
Attendee of many SPORTFISHING ON LONG ISLAND programs
From the young and old to the old salts and the neophytes, attendees
are treated to a wide array of fishing topics, the sharing of various
angling techniques, humorous anecdotes, knot demonstrations and disclosures
of fishing secrets that have taken a lifetime to accumulate. The captain
presents his program with a zest that has, at times, left people ready
to darn their fishing gear immediately.
|I have a confession to make -- I am a person
who never "got" fishing. I couldn't understand what
could make a person get up in the wee hours of the morning to
head to the shore and just sit with a fishing pole and wait for
something to happen. And now, thanks to Jerry McGrath, I get it.
I also realize how clueless I was to the challenge and the skills
required to be a successful angler. Capt. Jerry's obvious love
of the sport of fishing, together with his broad knowledge and
easy way of communicating to both the novice and the experienced
angler, made for a program that was not just educational, but
entertaining! "Sportfishing on Long Island" is a terrific
program and certainly cured my ignorance of the "lure"

|Capt. Jerry's recent presentation, SPORTFISHING
ON LONG ISLAND, was one of the highlights of our program year.
His vast expertise and knowledge of the waters of Long Island
made this a most interesting and entertaining program for all
levels of fishermen (and women!). The program has helped me to
understand more clearly why my husband has always spoken of fishing
in almost reverential tones.
