Everyday I spend on the water leads to a new experience or a "deeper understanding". It is my realization that sometimes we get caught up in the hustle and bustle of everyday life. At times it seems that time in and of itself escapes us. But, in a fleeting moment we decide to just breathe, slow down, and take it all in. Weeks, days and mere moments go by and create something quite special. You see, memories are made sometimes through our own accord and sometimes by happenstance. But, it is these memories that fuel our minds and feed our desires for life. During the past few weeks I had the opportunity to be apart of family and friends who decided to slow down and enjoy some time on the water. I thank all of you for the good times and memories........

Chris looking for the perfect drift. Thank you
to Tony Hunter for this quality shot!

The payoff!

Pat with a great looking hen, although the tree will never be the same!

Gary with a nicely colored steelie, and still giving me the "business".

Mike with a bruiser buck, finally falling to the perfect drift!

Anthony, I have to say, " I feel good about this one!"

Michael coming through with a great fish in tough conditions.

Rob with a perfect cast, dry-dropper fish. Awesome job!

John with his 300 yard dash prize. I'm still feeling this one!

Never give Up! Mr. Juriga with his prize. After losing footing
on a boulder and landing in enough water to drown the best of us,
he still kept the rod high, got to his feet and landed this fish.
All I can say is WOW! (and thanks for shortening my life a few years)

With Thanksgiving upon us, I would like to give you all a sincere thank you and wish you and your families the best over the holidays. And I would especially like to thank my wife and children for allowing me the time to pursue my passion, love you guys!

Until next time................

Most people don't realize it's not the fish they are after.
