I got the call on a Tuesday morning in late July. “We got them, and we’re currently at 1,001,” Holden said. “It was a tough trip, but we got it done.” He rehashed many of his great seasons and trips as he once again tallied the numbers in his head. “You can cheat in golf, you can cheat in poker, but you can’t cheat in fishing,” he proclaimed. The journey for 1,000 was never the goal in the beginning, but after tallying the logbooks, Holden and crew realized how close they were coming to their now completed milestone.
