    That's excellent. I'll have to find a copy and see it. Congrats, Dan!

    John,

    Looking forward to seeing you soon as well man. Won't be long. As for the mag, I will order a back copy or two. Folks and grand folks will get a kick out of it. Didn't renew my subscription as we have been moving around so much lately. In last 8 months we have lived on Nantucket,Mass, in Anchorage, and now in North Carolina. Hard to subscribe to anything.


    Which image did they use?

    Feel your pain man. Quit last week for 36 hours. Wife couldn't stand my ass. Mouth full now. Need to quit. Worst thing, I used chew to quit smoking 7 years ago. Worked like a charm, but the chew is far harder to quit. Maybe I will use cigars to get off the chew. ha ha...

    Had a touch of carpal tunnel in my left hand at the time. Reeling him in flared it up, fingers were cramping and bending. Was doing good to hold the fish at all. A lively fish that got more pissed as the fight continued, I was also trying to keep him from flopping around and hitting the ground. Admittingly, I should not have landed that fish. I got lucky. 7 times out of ten, the fish would have won. Knowing this made the memory more special. Not sure I deserved such a fish, but I will never forget it.
