Thank you, moucheur2003... Of the four daughters with whom I once shared "stream time," only two remain. Our second oldest, Lauren, was killed by a drunk driver in 2007, and as mentioned, Laramie lost her fight with leukemia in 2010.

Nowadays, the "fishing with Dear Old Dad" duties fall primarily to Jesse, now our youngest daughter, and an all-around great kid. After all, how many girls attending college would drive over four hours just to spend "The Opener" fishing with her Dad?

The only problem I see with it is the fact that she's become a far better caster and fisherman than her father. Still, she lets me tag along...

Thanks again for the kind words, my friend. Much appreciated...
