    Apologizing in advance, as this post does not strictly fit the forum topic. However, I certainly have enjoyed and learned from the many posts that are not strictly "reports." Comforted that there is the option to "like" posts, but no option to click a post as "I don't like this at all," so the only real risk is a hurt post-to-likes ratio.

    This video is 2minutes and 55 seconds long. Some may find it resonates, others may not identify with it at all.

    There was an invite on BD not long ago to enter a contest with a video of what inspires us to fish. I did not even make the finals, yet enjoyed learning iMovie, and putting together my thoughts on why it is that fishing, and now, particularly, long range fishing, gets so much of my attention. Based on what is posted here on BD, this passion is shared, particularly by those with orders of magnitude more posts.

    I really enjoyed this. Thanks for sharing. I can only imagine the news from the doctor that caused you to sell all of your gear. It sounds as if you have a second lease on life and are taking every advantage of it. One of my favorite BD posts ever!

    Your comment reminds me of having just recently attended my 50th high school class reunion. There was my football coach -- fully mature, who responded to my comment that it was so great to see him: "Loc, it is better to be seen than viewed." Probably true.

    Loc, I'm a cancer survivor myself (10 years now) and I really appreciate your intensity of life! It's interesting how serious news affects some people. You are right, as you get older you aren't as strong or quick. But age and treachery will overcome fish! And I get more curious and experimental as I go along. When I was in my 20's I would walk onto a boat with a small hook pack and several assorted sinkers and would happily fish bait all day long. Now it is SO much more fun (even though less effective, usually) to try to fool them with something artificial.

    Loc, enjoyed your video immensely. Made me reflect on why I've had a lifelong passion for fishing, and reminded me of my bypass surgery shortly after an 8 day a few years back. I'll be on my two trips a year 'til I'm incapable of getting on the boat. Maybe an electric Reel is in my future...........

    Nice you were doing this for all of us to enjoy. I can hear it in your voice you enjoyed making it as much as I did watching it. Tight lines.... hope to share the rail with you again in the near future Loc.

    I loved your video so much I had to share it with my wife. This helps me to explain my fishing passion (obsession).

    She enjoyed the video too.
