Default Lucky Dad Luckiest Son

Somehow my son seems to have a gift for winning contests . Several years ago at my coaxing he entered a contest to win a trip to spring training for his favorite team and a photo shoot with his favorite player and won! Since then he hasn't entered any contests until recently when I told him to watch the Jose Wejebe special on the World Fishing Network. Unbeknown ed to me while watching the special he entered a contest for a guided fly fishing trip to Montauk. He won! And guess who he's taking with him? Me!! Hot dam!!

Thanks Ard. Can't wait. And Montauk is my old stomping grounds from when I was a kid. As of right now it looks like we will be going out with Paul Dixon of ToThe Point charters who is an excellent Striper fly guide.

Got lucky again! My son spoke with the guide he worked it out so we can fish the fall run instead of the heat of summer. Just gets better and better!

NICE!!! There's a TV show, "How the Lottery Changed My Life", and some of these people have won more than once.

Enjoy the fishing!

You win again.
Paul Dixon is the best known guide out there. He's been featured on both Walker's Cay Chronicles and Spanish Fly and was on the bizarre reality show Guide House.
I remember him 'cuz he once stopped me on the road to ask how the fishing was
