I headed over to Thorne Brothers today because I new that a legendary angler would be there. I caught Al in the parking lot, after he gave a little boy a cheese curd. He allowed me to get a picture with him, and I offered him some encouraging words about how I enjoy how he closes each of his fishing shows with a spiritual help segment. It took everything in me not to ask him a million questions. Later, I was speaking with some other anglers about the Alabama rig, when Al came up and joined our conversation. It might sound silly, but the guy is a class-act, teacher, and giving person. I was so excited I went home to blog about it. Thanks Al, and maybe some day I will see you on the water!
