Member Profile, Butch Carey

Post by Dick Braun,that-zebco-guy »

As a native of Key West, Florida, Butch grew up around fishing. He caught his first sailfish at age 12 on a Penn 85 and his first blue marlin at 25 on a Penn Jigmaster. Butch seriously started collecting the reels of his youth around 25 years ago. For the last 10 years, Butch’s focus has been collecting Big Game reels, rods and tackle. Fascinated with the history of Big Game fishing, the men and women who pioneered the sport, and the reels and tackle they used and refined, he consulted on an exhibition “Following the Fish, Hemingway in Key West” at the Key West Art & Historical Society. Butch has been a member of ORCA since 2003 and now serves on the Board. He has contributed several articles to “The Reel News.” Butch also serves on the Board of FATC (Florida Antique Tackle Collectors) and is a member of the Pro Staff for Tycoon Tackle.

Dick, we are trying to come up with a "best" plan for posting these. Might be best done as "read only" or else different ones will be diluted with assorted posts and quasi-hijacks and make a mess.
