LMK how it goes Tom...
I've got an old book from the 80's (I think) from a seminar of Mark's. Was held next to Wyoming Gun & Tackle in the pizza joint. Don't recall if it was paid by WG&T or we flipped over something like $20. Mark's a pretty genuine guy and well, you know how he is. 😉
Fill me in on anything ground breaking and hopefully you can pass on something we both may have forgotten!
🙂✌

True story, a guy is only blessed with so many seasons indeed!
EVERYONE...

Use your little time on this planet wisely and as well as you can. Money is only "one measure" of how rich one's life can be...

There's always room to learn more, and if we go off on a tangent along the way it just could be another way to learn something else we didn't know.

The more people pay it forward, the more they enrich the entire world for everyone.

I've never boasted about whether or not I'm a fair, decent or good fisherman and I have picked up a few things over the years - I don't really have any secrets and will tell folks just about anything I'm asked about. Why? To help a fellow sportsman...
In a hypothetical situation, if Mark Martin approached one of us for a fishing report or asked for tips, would you help or hinder? 😉
I know my answer; and for me the right choice is to answer him honestly and to the best of my ability just like a few others I know that have also met Mark. As my "previous" profession I would never bag on a person trying to learn the same profession when I could just as easily mentor and build confidence in that person's success. That's really what Mark's passing on and paying forward while earning a living in his chosen profession.

Before opener came, an anonymous member here sent me a PM on advice for walleye on a body of water I've fished a time or so...😉
I answered best I could and for reasons beyond our control recommended they pass on that water. A few days later I was asked about another body of water I also have some "air time" on.

Here's a snippet from a PM, but you should know I've never met this person and probably have not exchanged PM's before.

Also,
I just want to say I have nothing but good things to say about Mr Martin and he's the kind of guy most would be proud to call a friend methinks.

Letting me know or not, matters not - making a difference and hoping for success does. Last I looked a charter wasn't all that cheap and I've been on several - either as a customer or impromptu staff and the good captain would like to get paid, just like when your paycheck comes 'round.
Captain Mark always has, and always will guys.
Y'all ever helped out? Good on you if you have!

I've never doubted your swatter abilities EVER!

And once it's been cut up and slapped on a blue polystyrene tray that negates the effects of the environment, or just cleans one's conscience better?
😂🤷🏻‍♂️
Good luck trying to find those "pristine waters"...
There's not a single part of this planet that doesn't suffer the effects of mankind stepping on nature and the ramifications loom larger than many want to realize.
We surely have some "shining examples" of what not to eat, but little is being done to recover the pollution and abuse.
