Tradition and Heritage
I'm proud to carry on the tradition of service to the boating community started by my great-great-great-great-very great grandfather, Jerry Falvey. Jerry was the premier purveyor of fishing tackle on New York's Fulton Street, back when it was real working waterfront. I am honored to have a split bamboo rod fitted with the patented reel seat mentioned in this obit from the NY Times.
