| "Dear Francois,
Congratulations of your latest string of record catches!
Nice fish catches by your clients are normal when fishing with a great guide like you, my friend. I'm personally not surprised anymore by any of your exceptional catches. I think you have the highest record catch rate as a professional fishing guide in the world. The IGFA definitely did the right thing by awarding you their Lifetime Achievement Award. You are without a doubt one of the most active IGFA reps and pro guides I have ever known in my life. Thanks to you many anglers in the world are joining the IGFA.
