James J. Rustic

On June 11th, 2012 this bench set was dedicated by MVBC

to the Rustic family of our late brother.

The dual Adirondack chair table was refinished and combined

with a plaque that included Jim’s favorite lure “Spotty”

This bench was later brought to one of Jim’s favorite spots,

the shores of Lake Champlain in North Hero, VT

This is where the final resting spot of bench can be enjoyed for years to come by fisherman from all over.


I pray that I may live to fish…….
Until my dying day.
And when it comes to my last cast,
I then most humbly pray:
When in the Lord’s great landing net
And peacefully asleep
That in His mercy I be judged
Big enough to keep.
