There is a rumor going around that Spence sold his business and won't be sitting in front of a computer everyday babbling along like he does from the comfort of his office desk chair instead of getting some "real" work done...There could then be a ray of hope that there will be less "Lore" and more warm & cozy fact here for the less romantic TroutNuts to chew on...:)

The other side of this rumor states that once he realized he had actually posted north of 1,300 times!, he was so embarassed that he checked himself in to re-hab to wean himself off his TroutNut addiction and re-introduce his troubled dark soul to a damn trout stream...

Wish him well...Oh brothers of the angle! Wish him well. :) May his waders never be away from his lovely Au Sable long enough to dry!

Matt...Tony...Shanti...That's Spence standing in your Montana fishing hole...Damn! :)

Tony...Somethings burning a hole in my wallet and I think its spelled W-I-N-S-T-O-N! Go Wings! Good luck to your Pens!

Just an unsubstantiated rumor, right? I hope there's nothing to it.

Jason...My wife left Michigan State in 1977, in the spring of that year. That fall she started working for a large insurance company and has been there ever since...October it would of been 35 years...Today it was official...We sold the place/I've worked with her for 20...Don't fret we did good for ourselves...:)

Spence, where are you heading to? Anywhere closer to my neck of the woods? Found your dream cabin on the banks of the Au Sable? Or heading out west somewhere? Do let us know!

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...

Rumor has it that he is moving to Pittsburgh so that he can root for the Pens.
I did promise you 2 of my 7 tickets, didn't I?
All men who fish may in turn be divided into two parts: those who fish for trout and those who don't. Trout fishermen are a race apart: they are a dedicated crew- indolent, improvident, and quietly mad.

Ha! Thanks for the offer my friend but this old boy has hung around these parts too long. I knew who Gordie Howe was before my family moved back to the Detroit area in 1963...Gordie would box my ears for me...:) Or, at least, straighten me out with a well placed elbow.

The powers that be upstairs running your team did a wonderful job modelling themselves after another winning team...The Red Wings (forgetting, of course, that we borrowed Scotty Bowman from you for a few years...:)) Now we here in Detroit need to model our own recovery maybe on the one your fair city pulled off...

You keep buying tickets mister we will have to name a whole section after your family...:) Instead of a number for the section we will have to paint your family name there...

Spence.. Congrats on a very successful and pleasant past, and an even more wonderful future to come. Ha, where ever it may take you! But don't forget when i head back east in a few months, we have a date up there some where.
Most of us fish our whole lives..not knowing its not the fish that we are after.

Thanks a lot Jess. Anytime you are ready to fish Michigan just send me a PM about when/where etc and we'll see what we can do...Also. If not this year for sure next I'll be heading out your way and maybe we can hassle some fish together.

I'll talk with you later...I'm actually going out to cut the grass in the middle of the day in the middle of the week...:) Then its back to getting ready for opening day and my May trip north.

Take Care!
