    Well ladies and gentleman, as some of you already know... I recently moved from Iowa to Chicago following my graduation of college. I left behind a great family, great fishing, and an amazing support group. I have been in Chicago for just over a month now and I am missing all of those things plus many more.

    I have given up on fishing this year... I think my days are numbered and I will be lucky to get out one more time before the winter sets in.

    My truck is broken down in Iowa... so I have no way to get to the fishing holes around here, not to mention my gear was all in the back of the truck...

    In short my spirits are kinda low. I will not be around here as much as I would like any more. I no longer have the internet in my apartment, but I will do my best to get on here from time to time.

    I am living day to day, hour by hour, but I am kinda down on my luck right now. I am not asking for sympathy or pity or anything... If you could though... could ya'll send a few knee mails up to the big guy for me?

    Ya'll mean a lot to me, and I hate to say that I am not going to be around much any more...

    We'll be praying for you! God works in strange ways. Keep your Faith & keep Praying for yourself. it's not selfish to ask the Lord for the same thing repeatedly. HE answers EVERY prayer, sometimes the answer is not yet. So hang in there! Your time is coming!

    Don't be so down man, there are places to fish in Il. too. You have the big water up there in Chicago and you have lakes, ponds, rivers, creeks all over the place up there. Buy you a $20 wal-mart ugly stick combo, some hooks, weights, liver, worm, stink bait, or whatever your flavor of fishing and find someone around to go fishing with. Cheer up, there are fish up there. People up there are kind of extreme though, watch out for the liberal yuppies they may tackle you on the bank and cut your line to save a fish while they're on their way to the local sushi bar.
