Just last Friday, we featured a video of A.J. stalking and landing a fine brown, and here’s another example of her angling prowess.

The rewards are remarkable, as Dave notes when he says, “It’s bigger than you think.” Indeed, it is. I suspect that life is about appreciating the small things in life.
