| Making EISHING ¥ URES N Dedication I would like to dedicate this book to Raymond “Boots” Smith, He was a good man to his family and his friends, and he was also my fishing partner. When Boots wasnt watching over his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, we spent many enjoyable hours in the fishing boat. I know he will save me a seat in his new boat; until then, I will miss him very much. ©2010 by Rich Rousseau and Fox Chape!
