I've been fishing with Dennis every summer for about 15 years and I thought I would add something simple to your collection. Most people will probably mention his fishing skills, his patience with novice smallmouth fisherman, and his determination to provide an excellent fishing experience. Some will bring up his in-depth knowledge of the Ozarks, it's history, and the people who inhabit the hills where he guides his clients. All of that will be true, but I don't want him to get too much of a big head. I hear that hat he wears is pretty expensive, and I don't want him to have to go out and get a larger model. What I will say is when I started fishing with Dennis my goal was to catch a bunch of fish, and eventually put a big reproduction on the wall. We have definitely gotten that accomplished. But at some point in our years together on the water I realized something truly important. I had made a very good friend.
