Great to hear from you Mike! Somehow I can't imagine you not fishing hard with all due respect but I'm sure your priorities are set right and there are lots of dividends later for the time invested now.
Just saw my son sworn into National Honor Society last night, talk about choking up. I tried not to be too proud but inside I was gleaming like nobody's business. It was the pride on *his* face for what he had done that was by far the best part. I saw a little of that look on Monomoy this summer when he landed a fat legal bass on the fly, but nothing like this. Glad I made time to interact a lot with my kids while they were young and we were living in the Seattle suburbs, and perhaps most importantly my wife has always been and is always the image of a treasured mom for them.
In any case, I am going to go put my kickboat into my truck and hope I find myself rowing into the fog at dawn. Thanks for the inspiration!
