COASTAL ANGLER MAGAZINE
Publisher’s Corner 
Rodney Smith
Publisher, Coastal Angler Magazine
I
was sitting in the lobby o Birmingham’s SheratonHotel on a bright, but cold Friday morning,catching up on my writing assignments. I’d bebusy the next couple o days attending my rstBassmasters Classic and working rom our booth.However, I couldn’t help but notice that across romme a silver-haired man, obviously dressed to attendthe Classic, was reading a new copy o 
Coastal Angler  Magazine
. I asked him, “How are you enjoying your
Coastal Angler Magazine
?” In the nearly slow-motionresponse one comes to expect rom a southerngentleman, he replied, “It’s good.” I continued by telling him I was the publisher and appreciated hiscomments. Warmly, he said, “Tank you very much,”telling me he was rom Alabama, and had never seenthis publication beore.Ten or some reason, I asked him an importantquestion. “By any chance, do you know what everhappened to Alan Clemons, the past outdoor editoro the Huntsville imes?”His look changed completely, as he dropped ourmagazine and pointed to the name embroidered abovethe pocket o his pressed shirt, “My name’s CharlesClemons. I’m Alan’s dad.” I told Charles about howAlan and I went shing or redsh together and whata great writer I think Alan is. Charles told me abouthis business, ight Line Jigs, and how much he enjoysworking in the shing industry. Still dumbounded, Itell him, “Boy it’s a small world.”A couple o weeks later while walking the flooro the 64th Annual Fred Hall Fishing Show in LongBeach, Caliornia, I meet a woman who starts tellingme about how well the product in her hand works.When I looked at her closer I asked, “Haven’t I metyou beore?” She was Darla Bardelli, a national radiopersonality and proessional angler. “I worked thebooth across rom you at the Bassmasters Classic,” Itold her. “Boy it’s a small world.”Te next day while working out the distributiono our new Orange County, Caliornia magazine,I walked into JD’s Big Game ackle, on NewportBeach’s Balboa Island. I you haven’t seen this shop,I highly recommend you make a point o stoppingby to see the collectable tackle and speak with JD.Now mind you, I had a little ear as to how well ourpub might be received, we being the new kid on theblock. But, within a minute o walking through JD’sdoors, a warm and comortable eeling came overme. Even though it’s a small shop, JD’s is a magicalplace that makes one proud to be an angler, especially those o us who have dedicated their lives to shing.Ten the moment the charismatic JD looked up romhis task at hand, it was like looking in a mirror. My ear o bringing
Coast Angler Magazine
to Caliornia,immediately evaporated. I thought to mysel, “Boy it’sa small world.”A week later, Karen and I are standing on BiminiBay Resorts’ docks waiting or our guide, ommy Sewell, to arrive. Te sun’s out, the breeze is lightand we’re excited at the prospect o going boneshhunting. wo other anglers were also with us waitingor their guide, Te Bonesh Legend, Ansil Saunders,to arrive. Over the next two days, we beriended themand their amilies. Tey all were in Bimini as part o the Edwards’ wedding party rom Crystal Beach/Moorehead City, North Carolina. Tis is the home o 
Coastal Angler Magazine’s
newest ranchise. I thoughtto mysel, “Boy it’s a small world.”Later that morning as the sun awoke thetranslucent waters above Bimini’s flats, ommy poled us quietly into casting position, as a swarm o bonesh made their way towards us. Gently, with histhick Bahamian drawl, ommy directed me, “At twoo’clock, get ready with your fly. Cast. Cast now!”Feeling his excitement and seeing the sh makingtheir way across a stretch o pure white sand wasspiritual. Te fly landed a ew eet in ront o thebonesh that was leading the le-hand side o theschool. It must’ve been watching the fly drop becauseit seemed like the sh reached the fly as it met theseamless, echo-tone, separating sky rom water. I setthe hook and immediately, the “Grey Ghost” took themajority o line rom my reel as ast as I could say, “It’staking all the line of my fly reel!”ommy suggested I tighten the drag slightly andassured me there would be enough line to land theescaping speedster. en minutes later, aer snappinga ew images and releasing her, I saw a look o successon ommy’s ace, one I’d shared with many o my clients over my years o guiding and I thought tomysel, “Boy it’s a small world.”Yes the world’s a big place, but great people andgood times can make it eel a bit smaller each day.
Boy, It’s A Small World
