      Radio fishin report

In memory of Capt Angel 1975-2010

 

 In Memory of Captain Angel
Angel remains here with us,
 He was my friend, I miss him

 

        Fishin Frank-----            

  It would be hard to picture life without fishing.
 People who do not fish do not understand the
therapeutic value of fishing, losing yourself to
 the motion of the waves and just relaxing.
The best things about fishing is where you do it,
 and that you do not carry a score card.

 

Since August 1984 when I first walked through the door here at Fishin Franks,
I found the people / customers to be the best part of this job,
and all these decades later that is still true.
You all are the best part of the day.

Thank you for letting me be a part of your lives so many years
Fishin Frank
