Steve is an avid, hard-core, terminally addicted fisherman. He was ruined for life when his father introduced him to the sport at the age of 8 while living in Norway. Chasing trout on mountain streams left an enduring imprint and drive to find new water... something that tortures Steve to this day.
Of course, this was preordained since Steve's father (Hal Moore - coauthor of the NYT bestseller, "We Were Soldiers Once... and Young") was fishing in a local bass tournament on the morning Steve was born. His Dad claims to have had permission to go, but Steve's mother does not remember the actual facts matching that story. Winning a nice Shakespeare reel did nothing to mitigate the trouble he was in upon his return.
