Fishing with my clients / friends has become one of my favorite pastimes. In May of 1992 my then boss at McCarter & English, Joe Lubertazzi, organized a trout fishing trip to his palatial estate in a remote (middle of nowhere) part of New York state known as Downsville. The trip was attended by a handful of lawyers from M&E and clients from First Fidelity Bank. The trip was a great success and became an annual event. In 2001 we celebrated the 10th anniversary of the trip. Click here to view pictures from the first decade of Downsville trips. You can view the reports for the following years by clicking on them: 2002 (hook in head), 2003 and 2004.
When we stated this firm in 1996, we began to host an annual (sometimes bi-annual) striped bass fishing trip aboard the Jersey Girl out of Highlands, NJ.Over the years, a friendly, spirited competition developed concerning fishing and telling amusing stories on these trips.In 2000, one of my clients, Mr. Henry Warshaw of Virtual Realty Enterprises, L.L.C., had the great idea of holding an informal, but more official competition, which has become known as Lord Henry Warshaw VRE Cup.Click here for reports and pictures from the competition for the Cup.
