Old Man still trying to figure out how to use his electronics!
Lover of water. Moving, flowing, rain, lakes, rivers, oceans. It's a beautiful thing.
Fishing has been part of my life for a long time. Now I use it as a tool to help, mentor and teach others.
Jesus became a part of my life in August of 2012. This personal relationship has opened doors and provided many opportunities to serve, mentor, teach, encourage and help others.
I am not a Christian because I am perfect, I am a Christian because I am imperfect and acknowledge that I need help to be better!
"There is just something about fishing....." Dusty
"Big Lures, Big Fish Biggtime!" Dusty circa 1999. It kind of stuck.
"People don't want to fish. People want to catch! Teach them how to be successful and catch fish. You will hook them for a lifetime!" Al Lindner
Popular Chinese Proverb “Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.”
