In the November/December issue of AMERICAN ANGLER, which has just come out, I have the Waterlines column for that issue, "She Still Can't Cast." The editors gave the story a subhead of "A story of true love and trout fishing."
The story is about my wonderful wife Elaine, how we met, began dating, and fell in love, her battle with breast cancer, and how Casting for Recovery (CFR) helped her in the healing process.
It's hard to write about one's own writing, but, in all humility, I cannot write any better than this. When I finished the story, I cried. When AMERICAN ANGLER accepted the story and I told Elaine about it, she wanted to immediately read the story. I told her she would have to wait until the story came out, which happened this week.
So when the magazine arrived on Tuesday, Elaine quickly read the story about her, and she too began crying and then said, "That was very sweet of you."
