Today is Big Tim's birthday so I wanted to say Happy Birthday to my friend! I miss him and will be eternally grateful to him for introducing me to this group.

It was 6 years ago yesterday that I first met Tim when he invited me to fish with him and JT aboard the Endeavor on NYE 2016. I met Tim and JT at the clubhouse and we cooked up a huge dinner and chatted well into the night.  Even though we'd never met before he made me feel so welcome it felt like I'd known him my whole life. The next day I got to chat with JT a bunch and got to know him a little as he had spent the night at his hotel.  Little did I know that trip would forge a lifelong friendship. I love you Tim and JT!

Here's a link to the trip report from that fateful trip!

Oftentimes, it is the seemingly small connections that we make in obscure ways —- that change our lives forever, going forward.

Hi, my name is Lee and I have a fishing gear problem.

I have all of the answers, yup, no, maybe.

Ah @&+$## !!!, I totally missed the posting about his passing in November!

Part of the fun of past SOA charters was the entertainment provided by Tim, Ed, Wes, and Warren talking smack about each other after tossing back a few drinks (well, usually it was more than a "few").

***SIGH*** Was hoping that I'd shared the rail again and maybe see him pull up a big BFT on the 100lb Okuma rod I gifted him a few years back...

...Happy Birthday Brother Tim.

Leave the gun.  Take the cannolis.

There are two things I don't like about fishing.  Getting up early in the morning and boats.  The rest of it is fun.

I never met Tim, but I knew him thru AT.com.  Special guy.
I woke today and suddenly nothing happened.
