STARS AND STRIPES

Marlin - - FEEDBACK -

Upon re­turn­ing from a re­cent trip to Baja, I read the March is­sue of Mar­lin. The cover shot was stun­ning, and your mag­a­zine never dis­ap­points. I was de­lighted to read An­gler’s Par­adise” by Mark MacKen­zie. He did a great job cap­tur­ing Cabo’s sport-fish­ing char­ac­ter and charisma. Both Dick Geb­hard, founder and tour­na­ment direc­tor, and I were pleased that MacKen­zie chose to in­clude the Stars & Stripes char­ity tour­na­ment. One of the old­est and largest char­ity tour­na­ments in the re­gion, Stars & Stripes, over its re­mark­able 21-year his­tory, has raised more

than $26 mil­lion for child-re­lated char­i­ties. This would not have been pos­si­ble with­out the re­mark­able sup­port the event has re­ceived over the years — sup­port that has helped change the lives of kids in Cal­i­for­nia, Baja and be­yond for the bet­ter. Named af­ter the kids it helps — the real stars of the tour­na­ment — the event now at­tracts more than 700 at­ten­dees each year. I will be re­turn­ing to Los Ca­bos soon and will per­son­ally de­liver Jorge Tellez his March is­sue of Mar­lin. Tellez, along with his Gavio­tas Sport­fish­ing Fleet, is a staunch sup­porter of Stars & Stripes, which cel­e­brates its 22nd an­niver­sary in July.

GoPro, here’s a re­cent pic­ture of me with a small blue. Could there be a one-man, one-boat tour­na­ment in the fu­ture? LeRoy Stone Kona, Hawaii Via email
