Let us bow our heads in a moment of silence for our friend, theduke. He was a good man, although I personally did not know him, he had high hopes and aspiring dreams of improving his fishing game. Hopes and dreams that were inevitably shot down by this ancient evil known as, wifey. We have all been there and feel the deeply seated pain, that pain deep in the seat of the trousers. May he rest in piece.
Eventually, luck will change. Skills, however, can be honed, added to, and improved.
