Quotes of the month:

Remember why you choose to study nature and do everything you can to preserve it ~ Author unknown

The charm of fishing is that it is the pursuit of what is elusive but attainable, a perpetual series of occasions for hope ~ John Buchan

The more that you read, the more things you will know.  The more that you learn, the more places you'll go ~ Dr. Seuss

Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn ~ Benjamin Franklin

We are all at a state of learning and we all have questions.  A lot of times, it's hard to ask, and even harder to be involved.  Although we ourselves are students, we would like to teach what we know and are inviting you to be involved.
