Dig the approach and philosophy, Mat! I still like tying deer hair bass flies though. Just don't like the mess.

Thanks for checking in, Mel! We all enjoy a good skunking every once in a while. It's this pre-spring period that has traditionally been my toughest stretch. They best part is it will end at some point.
-- First 2014 Outing -- It's been a very long, cold winter here in New England and most other parts of the country. In the seven plus years I've been fly fishing, I don't remember the local streams being as frozen over and un...

Please take 5 minutes and send a message to NOAA about protecting the collapsing New England Cod fishery. https://secure2.convio.net/clf/site/Advocacy?cmd=display&page=UserAction&id=357

I did not know how dire the situation is right now. I'm sure this is news to you  as well. This short video explains the situation. http://clf.wistia.com/medias/k9rb073lje

Well, right - but if the problem is there, they'd be short sighted to ignore it. No doubt!

When I bought a new 2003 525i almost 10 years ago, I shopped other BMW dealers in the area and decided on BMW of Peabody. It is a decision, to this day, I do not regret. First, my client advisor, Christopher Blasczak, did an excellent job finding the right car for me to meet my needs and budget. Chris just didn't sell me a car and move on the next deal, he has stayed in touch with me for over nine years and also helped our purchase of a used vehicle (not a BMW) from their trade-ins a few years after our original introduction. I also am completely satisfied with the service and attention to detail offered by BMW of Peabody's Service Department. Yes, they are not the cheapest option, and I have performed some of my own maintenance on the BMW since purchased, but I know that when I do bring it in, the job will be done right and if there were any issues, they would be promptly addressed. If you are in the market for a new or used BMW, you would be making a mistake if you don't talk to the team at BMW of Peabody. I wholeheartedly recommend them for both purchase and servicing of your BMW.
