Fish Tales from Your President’s Perspective.

Well, April ended with a buzz job for me. Can’t wait for May!!!!

As some of you heard or saw on the news. I was attacked by 3 hives of bees receiving over 120 bee stings. To say the least it was a frightening event and one I hope to never participate in again. I ended up staying the better part of 4 days in the hospital hooked to monitors and IV’s while the “massive amount of bee venom” went through my system.

In the end, a couple of things helped me survive the attack. I ran getting away from the full swarm, my weight, by being larger I was able to handle more venom, the fact that I was not allergic to bee stings, but most important of all was a 12 year old young MAN, who recognized my need and made the call to 911. Without panic or fear stayed near enough to help and stayed there until the ambulance left. As I was being rushed passed him I asked if he was ok, he said yes he only got stung once.

I was released in time to make it to the Trout Derby on Sunday. It was so special to see so many of you and be able to help the kiddy pond. These kinds of things bring you back down to earth. I loved all the bee comments and jokes at the Derby.

Now back to business, lets enjoy life, get out and do some fishing and help our neighbors and complete strangers when you can.

Paul Lorson
