Capt. Butch,

You are much too kind. I can't tell you how much Lauren end I enjoyed spending a day on then water with you. You are a consummate professional and I will do all I can to point people in your direction. I feel as if we had known and fished together before for many years. I enjoy the stories and of course the teaching aspect of the day.

We did manage to catch a couple of snook under the same tree that we drifted by on Caya Costa on Saturday with the Edgewater guys. They set up a little fishing trip for the dealers and we chose to go inshore instead of grouper fishing. We caught them on live bait of course chumming, which lasted 10 minutes til every guy in a boat on the water threw the kitchen sink in there. God, I hate weekends!

Also I just wanted to say that your boat was a pleasure to be on as well. I don't know a lot about flats boats in general but after seeing your boat perform I know what I'd be doing for a boat if I was in your area.

Oh yeah, that conch was some pretty good s$$t too. I hope to get back down sometime this fall and will definitely look you up. Maybe we can get a day Out on the water when conditions are more right for catching. I can't say "thank you" enough my friend. I hope to cross paths again soon. I always knew after reading you website that I was making the right choice. I was correct!!

Be well.

Rich Parisen
