“Among the virtues and vices that make up the British character, we have one vice, at least, that Americans ought to view with sympathy. For they appear to be the only people who share it with us. I mean our worship of the antique. I do not refer to beauty or even historical association. I refer to age, to a quantity of years.”

The Fishing benefit

The Camp-mak-a-dream Walleye benefit that I run with Peggy was a success.  We had 34 teams this year and I think everyone had a great time.  One of the young ones got a fishing pole and I wish you could see his gallop step to pick up his free pole.  It WAS what the event is all about.  It's about family, kids and fishing for fun and a good cause.  The camp is for children with cancer.  It allows these kids to come to a camp where they can try new things and experience being a normal child.  They come cost free and stay for a week.  Their days are filled with fishing, crafts, camping, swimming and making friends.  Our little event helps this great crowd.
