If only

More people in the world were thankful for the smaller things in Life

I think I fish, in part, because it’s an anti-social, bohemian business that, when gone about properly, puts you forever outside the mainstream culture without actually landing you in an institution. –John Gierach

It's a great story and the man in person is just as he is shown in the vid. Very humble but energenic as all get up. Nothing deters him from his passions....

A true please to have met him in person.

It's equally cool and impressive that his friend had faith and motivation to get him out there, teach him the basics, and provide a relationship to nature that Miller found meaningful and fulfilling

That's good company!

Thanks for posting this! Mick and Chad are good buddies of mine...Nothing holds Mick back! He goes for it... he's off in Colombia right now by himself. He's a trooper! I'll never forget the look on his face when he hooked on of his first big uns on the mainstem one night! As for Chad..., he's a stand up guy too and the man that gets it done for Nicholas Dean outdoors. Thanks again for posting the vid.
