Mooch Lives!   that was straight&to the point......my Kayak Fishing days will never be the same without him. I met him in 2006, but it feels like we fished&chilled for over 20years.

Thanks Bushy  :smt010

That is very fitting article Allen for such a great man that touched so many lives in so many ways. I to am one of the many people who only had the opportunity to meet Joel one time. He seems to have really touched my heart greatly. I think to myself how could a person that i only met one time make such an impression on me. It really is so simple though. It was so easy to see that he was a man that you could tell was genuine and did not put up any defenses or guards when you met him.
I am not a man that is not the best at articulating my thoughts, but I must say that his spirit and all the good wishes that everyone has expressed has really touched me  :smt010 :smt001.  My regards to Joel's family and the N.C.K.A. family.I am really glad to be part of such a great group and hope to get to know you all better. Sincerely, Bulldog  ( Alex ) :smt006
Enjoying my Family.
