SWORDS DOWN UN­DER

Marlin - - EDITOR'S LETTER - Chris Miller Via email

I just got my June/July 2017 copy of Mar­lin and was pleased to note An­drew Cox’s Ed­i­tor’s Let­ter, “The Best 24 Hours Ever?” re­gard­ing the swordfish fish­ery off New Zealand’s North Cape. I wrote an ar­ti­cle in the De­cem­ber/Jan­uary 1998 is­sue of Mar­lin — back when David Ritchie was ed­i­tor — ti­tled “The Fab­u­lous Far North,” about the sword­fish­ing po­ten­tial there. I caught the first swordfish by a Houhora Big Game & Sports Fish­ing Club mem­ber and wrote of the fan­tas­tic po­ten­tial for this game fish there. I have since moved back to the United States, and it is great to learn that this po­ten­tial is be­ing tapped — it makes me want to go back and have an­other go! Thanks for keep­ing Mar­lin such a great mag­a­zine.
