Those were my hopes, my dreams went far beyond those
Consequently I was able have great pecentages with steelhead, catch more huge stripers than ever before in a season, and over all have a banner year on the water I won't soon forget. The experience was drastically enhanced by the freinds I've met through our growing online angling community.
Hey, let's set our 2002 goals in January so we can go back and see how we did after the season passes.
