I got a little chuckle out of this picture.  Two good buddies right there.  Sometimes fishing ain't catching. 

I'm pulling for Tom and hope that y'all get to pester many more of those bull trout in the years ahead.

Wishing Tom the best David.

Prayers sent for Tomís healing. Itís miraculous how surgeons can manipulate and maintain a heartís proper function.  Hoping to hear another victory story with his recovery.
