In 2006 my best times, And Favorite Memories are with those who I care about. The old Friend ships I rekindled and the New Friendships I made. Reuniting with my Old fishing buddy Shane, Meeting my New Fishing buddy Neil These Are Two things that will Last seasons to come. I'm very Pleased with the way 2006 turned out, and it has nothing to do with the Fishing. I've come to learn you can learn a lot about a person and a person's character by Spending a few hours on the Lake. In 2006 I am most Grateful for the Friendships I now have that will carry on for many more seasons to come. Together we'll share each other's ups, and also each other's downs. We'll help build on each other's Weaknesses and Help better each other's Strengths. This Year has made me Believe I'm as Good As I want to be. I can be what I want to be, I write the next Chapter in my Beloved Fishing story and I choose which rode I'd Like to take. And I believe the Coarse, and the Rode I take in 2007 will be the right one. Fishing to me has always been an obsession, not a passion, not a hobby but an obsession.

But my most beloved memories of 2006, Were not The Numbers of Fish I pulled in, nor the quality fish I pulled in. but the Experiences I've came Across Along the way. The memories I've stored in my Mind from every happy, but also every sad moment in 2006.

This is my year in Review,

In 2006 I caught 949 Fish, and had 2 Skunks in 73 Outings. Many people Question Why I keep tabs on these sorts of things, Or Why I put as much effort as I do into my reports. It's because I am a Very Goal Orientated Gentleman. I see Things Others Don't, I know my Skills, but I also know my Capabilities. I work Hard to Be the Best And I don't stop until I reach my Goals. To Some Fishing is, Well Fishing But to me It's my Life. There is not one Person who wants to be around me if I get skunked. We'll just Say I'm not Happy. This Translates into The detail I put into Reports. When I go Fishing, I want to surpass my Expectations. I set a limit before every outing. And If I don't at least meet them, I get very aggravated. And there fore Leads to Many long nights trying to determine what Exactly Could have been the problem, And This year; I didn't live up to it. Due to Failed hook sets, Poor Decisions. I Feel Like I have to prove something come the 2007 Fishing Season.

In 2007 you will find a New Dedication
