She was my first fishing partner and she is the reason I am such a fanatic about fishing now. I have written three articles here about fishing with her, they are listed above under "Related Resources." Those memories helped me get through the terrible time in my life when she died. I will never go fishing without thinking of her.
All the wonderful comments, thoughts and prayers from the people here also made a great difference. Fishermen are some of the best people on earth, and times like these bring that home even more.
I hope every one reading this has someone to take them fishing, or to take fishing. If you have children, make memories for them and you now. It will last both of you a lifetime.
