How ya'll are!?
 From all of the posts I see here, I can tell we all fish for a living.
 I thought it might be interesting to find out how diverse we are in our means of employment, that is what pays the bills at your house?
I am a home inspector and do variuos things in between as well, such as finish carpentry, small concrete jobs, fences, etc... Not glamorous but I do have plenty of free time for fishing!

Of the big lake they call Gitche Gumee
Superior, they said, never gives up her dead

I am a marketing geek. I work in the commercial lighting market for a company called Finelite. We manufacture fluorescent indirect lighting for offices and schools. Keep dreaming about getting a job with a rod or reel manufacturer.
