At the December 2022 Hudson River Fishermen’s Association Fishing Gear Green Marketplace, I discovered Hudson River Stripers – The Guide by John H. Vargo published in 1995 and knew I just had to add it to my personal library. The seller was asking the hefty sum of $5.00 for the used paperback book in very good condition. It is signed by the author and was the property of the late Tom Siciliano. Sold! No need to negotiate a lower price. When I finish reading it, it will go into the HRFA’s new lending library for other members to enjoy.
