Thanks, Frank, you made my day.

I just about cry every time I pass someone coming out of a stocked stream with a stringer full of stockers. Without fail, a week or so after stocking I'll pass someone coming out empty handed. When I ask them how the fishing went they will comment that the fish are all gone and that their day has been a disappointment. Yet, near as I can tell, they never make a connection between that day and the 4-5 days prior when they walked out each day with a stringer of trout. Were the 4-5 prior days worth ending the season today? Or would they have been happier catching fish today and tomorrow and the day after and the day after...
