It’s Time to Say "So Long…"

I have been blessed!  I have been the guide here on About.com’s Saltwater Fishing site for almost 15 years.  It has been a thrill, but the time has come for me to hand the reins over to someone else.  Lots of issues are causing me to step down, the major one being my wife’s current battle with cancer.  I’ve made a lot of friends, met a ton of people, and tried to share my fishing knowledge with all of you.   I have had a ball!  Almost 15 years!  It’s been quite a ride for me.  Since 1998 I have been sharing my fishing experiences and knowledge with people around the world.  I will find it difficult to wake up every morning and not be checking and updating my site.

About.com is a great compilation of people – over 900 of them – who have a passion for their subject and a desire to share that passion with the world.  I will miss my friends at About.com, and I will  miss all my online fishing friends who email me regularly, and faithfully read my work.  I have so many people to thank, and the first in that thank-you line is Ronnie Garrison, About.com’s Freshwater Fishing Guide.

Ronnie is the man who got me started not just at About.com, but also writing for several outdoor magazines.  Ronnie – you are the man!

A new guide is standing in the wings to take over and provide new, fresh content and answers to your fishing questions.  I’ve made my recommendation, and the selection process is underway.  Until then, you will still see the site updated and you will still receive the weekly newsletter if you are subscribed.  So, hang in there!  And when the new guide is announced, I encourage all of you to welcome that person the way you always welcomed and encouraged me.
