There are some people who need a pile of recognition from Chucking Line and Chasing Tail.
We roll out of bed at 4am and disrupt their sleep.
We disappear for weekends to chase our passion and they smile at us and give us an understanding smooch, with no thought to how nasty smelly and bearded we are when we return.
They listen intently to our fishing stories and keep listening even though they could swear they'd heard the same story possibly 17 times. "Yes honey, the steelhead...yes, it jumped how many times?"
The Wifey and Mrs OMR, here's to you two. You stand by us time after time when we get that look and you tell us...GO, GO Fishing and hunting. These Chicas get it.
Knowing how much they help us, it makes us work harder at being good husbands and a son to them.
Both will fish (Mom tends to outfish Dad given the opportunity) when pressed, but they are content to support us. What amazing women they are and OMR and I are thankful they stand behind us as we go slay the dragons afield.
So we embark on a new post category here at CLCT.....spotlight on the people who dont normally get their credit. Significant others, lodge cooks, shuttle drivers, so on and so forth. If you want us to throw the love their way, let us know and we'll post it here

Thanks Mom and Wifey, you are both awesomeness unlimited.
