Testimonials

FISHING:
“I think Decatur is a great place. I wasn’t kidding on stage when I said I wanted to move here. I’ll have to speak with my wife about that. Everybody here is so friendly. Everybody waves and they say nice things and you just don’t see that everywhere you go. This city is a great place and we’ll have to look at it seriously when I retire.”
