For as long as I have known my husband, he has been an avid outdoorsman. For years, it was me who would sit out on the piers with him as he fished for the next big one. When our children came along, it was only a matter of time before they took my place.

I absolutely love to see the pride on my husband’s face when my kids catch a fish. I know they are learning from the best fisherman there is!
