Keisel Hosts Kids For Fishing!

Keisel hosts kids for Fishing!

“I was really excited when I found out I was coming here,” Wesley said while wearing his Keisel-provided “Da Beard”' fishing vest. “And we caught a bunch of fish, too.

That was the quote from one of the kids from Childrens Hospital during a day of fishing with Steelers lineman Brett Keisel  "Pro Bowl defensive end of Pittsburgh Steelers. In a week of bad news for NFL fans, lets look at a positive story of what many pro athletes contribute to their local cities.

We are too often fed story lines of how bad these Pro's are and it is true there are more than a few. We should also bring out the many good stories provided by responsible, caring, and honorable athletes that play for these Sports Franchises.

Texas "Floyd Mabry" Fishing Legend

Texas "Floyd Mabry" Fishing Legend

It has been said "do something you love, and you will never work a day in your life". This fishing legend did just that.

As I am retired now and have the time to reflect on my life and since today is Fathers Day I can think of my dad and my Father in law, we all toiled many years, in Retail, and Construction. We didn't hate our jobs but oh my, imagine having to go fishing all the time?

 “One of the things that makes what I do so wonderful is that age doesn’t become a factor in fishing,” he said. “You never are too old or too young to go fishing.”
loyd Mabry passed away on Sept. 24, 1991, and is buried near Edmond, OK, alongside his wife, Irene.

His words ring true! The truth is I love it when I find stories like this one. Thank you Bass Fishing Archives for a nice article and hope my readers enjoy!

Where to begin? 

Some of my fondest memories growing up were days spent on a pond near home. Myself and friends armed with our trust fishing poles going after the mighty trout. Always in great hopes of that huge catch that would awe and amaze family and friends.

This was in the early 1960's. You know, before the internet, our wonderful information age. Some of my friends went fishing with their dad's and gained their knowledge in that way. My dad whom I loved dearly was just not into the pastime. 

As the years passed I too lost the interest in spending hours on the lake, but I never lost interest in the fishing shows on television. Now that I am retired I am again interested. My years in retail taught me gather information and to pass it to my team and my colleagues so we could all gain from the shared information.

My intentions for this blog is to gather information that will improve my experience and hopefully you will enjoy this the same as I do.

I promise to do my best to gather interesting fishing tips and articles to entertain and improve your appreciation of the sport of fishing. We hope to bring a wide variety of fish and their habits and habitats to you.
