...Come FishN Mason's Lane
My Name is Neal Mason founder and President of FishN Mason’s Lane. I want to welcome you to my “Lane” of life’s coexistence…fishing! At FishN Mason’s Lane we create “Lanes” that incorporate your passion for fishing and the great outdoors…sharing my passion for fishing and fellowship with you!
Growing up in Cleveland, Ohio, my Dad would take my brother and I fishing on the shores of Lake Erie where Sheepshead (freshwater Drum) and Yellow Perch where Saturday nights fish fry. Dad would call Mom from work, “tell the boys to get ready”…translation…start digging for earth worms, we’re going night fishing! Our proudly displayed full stringers of fish always produced “Ah’s! and Oohs!” as we treked back across the lake shore rocks to head home. Since the age of 3, fishing has been a part of my life; handed down from Dad and reassured each time I’m on the wa ter; generating a burst of laughter after every catch.
The past 40 years I’ve fished many fisheries, both fresh and salt. I have been blessed to have traveled to many countries and have had the pleasure of fishing world class fisheries such as UK’s The River Test, Purto Rico’s San Juan Bay, Belize’s Belcampo and El Pescador Lodges, and domestically New Mexico’s San Juan River, Wyoming’s Snake River, Washington’s Yakima River, Harman, West Virginia and the South Holston River in Bristol, Tennessee, along with many more.
Raised in Northern Virginia I’ve always been passionate about fishing. After nearly 30 years of Government Service, I’ve decided to follow that passion.
