I can?t find the original email from the Bahamian Tourist Ministry so the date is a little fuzzy. I believe it was just after New Years when Earl Miller from the Ministry first contacted me and asked if I would like to come down to the Bahamas and do some fishing on the ?out islands.?

Considering the ?out islands? had been and were Sponsors on Fly Anglers OnLine (FAOL) I thought it was a terrific idea. My late husband Jim (Castwell) was in town doing errands when that call came in, so I had big news to tell him when he got home.

His first question was, ?Is the invitation for both of us??*I had to tell him it wasn?t, I was invited.
