    The Embry family says:
    I was always happy to see Mark working when I entered Hookers. He was always pleasant and helpful and more than willing to help make me a better fisherman. His stories and tips were always helpful and he made my family and I feel like he was always happy to see us. On more than one occasion he went out of his way to help us. He stayed late and or offered to if we couldn’t make it before closing allowing us to bait up and have many great fishing trips. Once while en route to fish as we stopped to get bait, my son realized his license was expired and Mark went far and beyond to help us get a license on line so we could continue on our eagerly awaited trip. On other occasions he also took time to listen and talk with me about struggles I was having and always provided great advice. I am blessed to have known him and will always be thankful for his help and kindness.
