All good things must come to an end. For reasons I do not wish to go into, I am no longer employed by the IGFA.
I want to thank you for each and every photograph and email you sent from Thailand. Of all people, you have done the best job of promoting fishing and conservation efforts for your local area. Your enthusiasm for fishing is unparalleled and addictive. No other person spoke so fondly of their local fishing as you did, treating the fish as an equal, and because of that there is only one exotic locale that I would fish if given the chance - Thailand.
I hope to hear from you many more times, and one day perhaps we will fish side by side."
