I have spent the last couple weeks working in the Joplin area and the devastation is just overwhelming. As I drive through the neighborhoods I cannot help but think that the lives of these people will not be the same for years to come. I have fishing trips with best friend (my father) planned in both June and July and I have to admit I am so lucky. The folks in Joplin will not see a normal life for years.

I know that some of our friends from MAKO Fly Fishers live in Joplin. I just hope they are okay and their vises are still tying.
