This man is a wizard

Derick is a wizard. That is the only explanation.I have been out with him several times fishing for different species with different tactics each time. Every time he has put us on fish and put the tackle in my hand to put fish in the boat. He is so good at what he does I refuse to believe he is a normal mortal.
