Al's Fishing Report
Introduced to Brooke and TSI during the summer of 2007, Al Springstead is a regular volunteer at TSI and the contributor to Al’s Weekly Fishing Report. Born in Suffern, New York, Al moved to California when he was just eight years old. Upon graduation from San Rafael High School, Al was drafted by the Army and served one year in Vietnam. Wasting no time upon his return in 1968, he immediately married his young high school sweetheart. After working in several fields he went on to spend 24 years with the United States Postal service, from which he is also retired. Al spent lots of time fishing as a young boy with his dad. Like his dad, he also finds fishing to be a relaxing and peaceful hobby with the added enjoyment of returning unharmed fish back to the water following the thrill of the catch. Fly and fresh water fishing are Al’s favorite methods of fishing.
