Don Henry age 63 in July, the 10th if the club wants to throw a party.
Married to DyAnne for 41 years, two sons, Derek and Damon. Derek has given us two grandsons, Devyn and Drew.
I prefer slow baits, but as long as I'm fishing I could care less what speed the boat is moving, as long as I'm fishing.
Preferred beverage is bourbon/seven, Knob Creek to be specific, you know, birthday coming up!
Tri county bass club has been the greatest thing to happen to me since sliced bread. What a great group of guys, even thought I do take an undue amount of crap.
I have learned to love the Mississippi, although as I stated before, being on the water with a pole in hand is great no matter where I happen to be. Good luck to all this year, hope I continue to improve, got some great teachers.
