    Okay........the cat's outta the bag on this one now. Matt ordered this as a gift for Mike Morris of "Big Fish Transport". Mike's in the business of taking care of long range fishermen from out of town. Stores their gear, picks them up at the airport and gets them to their destination safe and sound. Great service and a very nice guy. He's definitely made a big impression on Matt getting to and from Texas for his trips aboard the Excel.

    To be determined
    I had never met Mike before my 10 day Intrepid trip last fall but he has really gone out of his way to look out for me, my gear, and do everything he can to make the whole clusterf#@€ of travelling and transporting stuff easy on me. We talk almost on a weekly basis and a lot of the time it's not even about fishing. I knew he was really impressed with Jim's work and he said "maybe some day" he would have one of his rods. Well I just wanted to make that some day a reality and say thank you at the same time for everything he didn't have to do for me.
