Fishing and the River of Life
A great fishing story from a great American outdoors writer.
With a 66th birthday less than two weeks away, a great gift arrived at the cabin pulling a big Ranger boat and wearing a broad smile.
The Rivers of Life - they're all connected, aren't they?
Jesse Simpkins and I have been pals for more than 20 years. Fishing was the common thread, which brought us together. The epiphany that fishing is truly the River of Life didn't dawn until the following morning.
Jesse was the newly anointed marketing manager for Plano Molding Co. and I was already 20 years into a journey which goaded me into sharing the wonders of the great outdoors in print and working as a fishing guide.
