Zach Haines, a 10-year-old boy who loves fishing, mostly for trout in a creek near his house in Libby, Montana, really wanted to go saltwater fishing for salmon. Through the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Zach who is very ill, got his wish.
Two Charter Captains from Anacortes, Jay Field and Brett Rosson, took him fishing in the San Juan Islands.
The threesome caught a lot of fish. Zach had a great time on on Brett's boat and was probably able to not feel so sick for a while. Jay and Brett are a couple of good guys who made a kid's day.
Sometimes we get wrapped up in our high dollar tournaments, high horsepower rigs, and highly competitive natures. But this sport always comes back to taking a kid fishing. A day spent out on the boat. A little boy with a pole headed to the creek with his dog. A wish and a fish. It always comes back to that. - Kevin Klein
