I titled this post  “Hooked On Giving” because deep down it can be hard to give, but once we learn, there is a sense of inner sweetness to the soul that longs to be felt over and over.  It took me a long time to come to realize this, but now that I know I wanted to share with you.

Here we are a couple weeks after Christmas and I am writing to say thank you to everyone who made Christmas special for some of the teens we’ve been fishing with the past year. With your giving, buying hats and Tshirts… Hooked On Life was able to give 4 fly rods, bibles, fly boxes, flies, and more away. Check out a few of the pictures below. These guys were so stoked to receive such rad gifts for Christmas!! You have no idea.

 It couldn’t have been made possible without your help! So THANK YOU SOOO MUCH!! Also, thank you ECHO FLY RODS for giving us a discount on the Rods, Reels, and lines. That was super rad of you guys and because of it more teens are growing a passion for fly fishing. If anyone you know is looking for a stellar fly rod, I recommend Echo. Lets make 2015 the best year yet. I pray God does some awesome things through you this year. Lets store up our treasures in Heaven by our good deeds on earth! 

 “Give, and it will be given to you. You will have more than enough. It can be pushed down and shaken together and it will still run over as it is given to you. The way you give to others is the way you will receive in return.” Luke 6:38
