Jan. 31st, 2015:
That's right folks. I have decided to take another year off
and go fishing. I would like to thank everyone for allowing me to take you fishing for the past 18 years. I hope to get to spend some more time on the water with many of you in the future. The time however has come for me to take a little time for myself. You know. Hog all the good spots. LOL. Hope all of you have a truly wonderful year. Thanks again!
