My brother, Jeff, sent this short article to me recently. Back in March of 1979 (I was 8) my grandfather took Jeff and I along with his best friend Tex and his grandsons fishing at Lake Isabella in California. Us four boys spent just about all day long reeling in crappie after crappie. Our grandpas could hardly keep up. We ended up catching over 400 crappie that day. The local newspaper took our picture and wrote a small article about us as well. Over a thirty year period we’ve had a hard time locating that newspaper clipping so the attached picture/article is about all that’s left. That’s pretty cool for Jeff and I but it sure does make us feel old.
I've been married for 15 years now to my wife Lindie and have 2 great kids, Raegan and Ryan. Lindie and the kids are absolutely incredible. We do a lot together and have a blast. Although Lindie may not understand my various obsessions she stands behind me on all of them. I've been fishing on and off since I was a kid but have taken up fly fishing seriously in late 2008. It's very addicting and I hope to pass the joy on to my kids. When I'm not chasing one of my many hobbies I'm usually buying or selling a house for someone as I have been in the real estate industry since 1991.
