Thank You Veterans!

I am holding this pole like I caught this steelhead, but Dave actually picked my pocket with it, harder than it's ever been picked before (or since).
As I sit in my office on Veterans Day today, and think about how lucky we are to live in the greatest country on earth, and what it takes for us to live this way, I can't help but think of the veterans out there that make this happen.  My grandfather served in the Korean War, and my Dad in the Coast Guard, and to them along with every other veteran, thank you!

Of my friends who have served, one in particular stands out, my all-time best fishing buddy Dave.  Dave and I met in college and after I forgave him for his rocking the boat style of casting and he forgave me for my control issues while fishing we became best friends.  There is nobody that I have spent more time driving around with (listening to the same CD because his CD player was broken), chasing all sorts of fish and having a blast.  After 4 years at Ft. Leonard-Wood, Missouri, Dave got stationed in Hawaii, and I am beyond excited for our next adventure  this spring (more details soon).  Thanks for being a great friend Dave, and thank you for your service!
