Again this year, the Christmas Eve edition of the Reel Report presents Vince Stigligh Jr’s. Version of “The Night Before Christmas.”

“Twas the night before Christmas on the island you know; Way out on West Bay where there is no snow, Asleep in their bunks were Billy and Lou, a dreamin’ of limits like me and like you. Not stockings but waders hung close to their beds for those were two anglers, what more need be said?

Thank you for that. Coach Stig was a tremendous teacher, friend and fishing partner. I have tons of great memories of him, he is surely missed. Mark
