I thought I would start by saying hello to everyone. I'm no means a polished fisherman. I have fished off and on all of my life. Sometimes successful and sometimes not. There was a time in my life that I worked quite hard to catch "ol big". I spent countless dollars and hours working my buns off in quest of that huge flathead that was sleeping underneath the willow. Now I enjoy my time fishing. I spend quite hours sitting along a Kansas river. If I catch fish it's a bonus. I have decided that the pleasure is in the fishing and not necessarily in the catching. So, no matter what, I love my time fishing.
