Long Island Sound Reports On Radio Show
John Richy of Terminal Tackle joins Rich Johnson weekly, live on The Fishing Line Radio Show
Saturday afternoons at 4 p.m. on WGBB 1240AM radio to give current and live updated reports for the LI Sound Region

Patriarch of Terminal Tackle in Kings Park, John Richy- age 72, passed away from heart failure Tuesday (12/18). He was in the hpsitpoal since mid to late November and home the last 10 days before passing on Tuesday. That's why he has not been on our show in 3 or 4 weeks. He was scheduled to do the show this week (12/22) but his heart gave out last Sunday and Monday and then passed on Tuesday. John was one the first people to sign up with me & The Fishing Line John Richywhen we started back in 1995 when I left the Fisherman and started doing radio & TV and our website. John was on with us live every Saturday with the North Shore Fishing Report at 4:12 p.m. almost every single Saturday for over 24-1/2 years. Since our first show May 6, 1995 right up till a month ago when he became sick, the only shows he missed was his annual trek in June to Maine for freshwater fishing with the family and the occasional trip in September or October to the Bahamas. John was as loyal as they come. When the economy tanked in 2008 with Obama and all the boys in say Capture cut their advertising, John never wavered. John knew what we were accomplishing with our shows and was a stout supporter of them from day one. I’ve known John since junior was like 5 years old way back in the day of Take A Kid Fishing trips in the late 80’s. Terminal Tackle will survive with son John Richey and daughter Beth at the helm. Terminal remains one of the few places you can buy jig and bucktail molds, lead pots etc. and their catalogue is superior as well and nothing will change there, only the gruff voiced mentor to North Shore anglers John himself. John will be sorely missed by me and all listeners of The Fishing Line, who over these last 24-1/2 years welcomed John into their homes, cars, laptops and smart phones as people listened to our show every Saturday  at 4 p.m. John was part of our family and yours as well. The one day only wake for Dad will be tomorrow, Friday 12/21, at Clayton Funeral Home in Kings Park, NY. The visitation hours will be 2-4 and 7-9.

(631-269-6005):
We're going to wrap this up now for the season...no reports coming in, no one really trying. Thanks for being with us this season and please look for our new podcasts in 2019. As for herring, they have no rhyme or reason you just have to go when you can go and hope they are biting. If you would like to share your reports whether you caught fish or not, or what the conditions were where you fished, we’re sure everybody could benefit from them and would certainly appreciate them. Text them to 516-435-8382 or e mail Rich@thefishingline.com. Make sure you ask for your Terminal Tackle catalogue, it's free! On the web at www.terminaltackleco.com
