Id like to thank everyone, Members of OFF, Trout unlimited, Orvis and my dear friends for your generous offers to help this one child to experience fishing. My wife stated, jokingly; that if all offers were excepted, Ben could start his own tackle shop and guide service. I Chatted this week with Bens mother and was informed that there family was experiencing financial difficulties. Maybe 10 dollars is to much to ask for a child's fishing lic. when it could be used to provide a meal for the family table. She bought a fishing lic. for Ben and I can take him out fishing when ever its convenient. First stop is empire lakes in coos bay this week, Hope he enjoys. Thanks again. sincerely; Martin S.
