Welcome to the site! Some guy Tysdad115 may be able to hook you up with stickers. I heard he has a bunch of them.

I'll give it to you, you certainly put your time in last year. Even times that you should have called it a day.....

I remember one morning in the pouring rain with thunder and lightning all around , in waist deep water with 11' rods, waiting for the other to flinch. Not doing that again.

But at least afer the 6 mile bike ride, the rain stopped and sun came out bright...
and to Kvn4 -just a heads up-if its 2AM and the kids are cold and tired because theres no fish around- It IS ok to have them sleep on the bench while you and your friends fish...it might take you out of "father of the year " contention but it all works out in the end...by the way how old are your kids? My boy is 11 and he's pretty good teaching younger kids , but he's got a bit of an ego issue from going large all the time....we would be happy to try and help out.
