As many of you may have heard, our former general manager and current guide Chuck Scates was diagnosed with mastoid cancer in October. He underwent a radical neck dissection on November ninth, and is currently undergoing chemotherapy and radiation to eliminate any remaining cancer cells. His recovery is coming along nicely, and although he is currently off the water he is planning to return to guiding on April 1.
Chuck would like to extend his appreciation for all of the concerned phone calls and prayers, and hopes to see all of you on the water again soon. Chuck would also like to add that due to his surgery, he will only be able to yell at his fishermen half as much as he has in the past, so leave the ear plugs at home.
