I'd like to express my deep gratitude and admiration to Ralph Long of Ralph's Fly Box. Ralph spent more than a decade in the military. He had one of those jobs that constantly put him in danger.
Ralph, thank you for everything you did and sacrificed to protect me and my family.
When I pour my evening beer tonight, I raise my glass to you, and also to your brothers and sisters in service.
(In case you're a new visitor or you just missed it, you can read about my recent trip to fish alongside Ralph on some of his home waters in Central PA.)
