Favorite Fishing Line? Not the kind on your reel, but your favorite fishing saying (mine's "...there's a reason they call it fishing and not catching..."):

About Me:
A career optimizer of web sites and ecommerce, I’ve been a committed angler most of my life, as well.

One day, while my pops was relaying a story about the old gent behind the counter at the local Orvis shop who wanted him to bring in a picture of the trout he bragged about so proudly for the bulletin board. My mind began to drift and it suddenly clicked… I can build a site for my friends and anyone else to post their fishing tales and pictures! They can send their pictures to their buddies anywhere in the world.

Not just that, but we can now arrange fishing trips; tip each other off to what’s the hot spot and what’s not; and keep each other generally updated. Best of all, it’s a gateway to getting in a little more fishing with friends (virtually or otherwise).

Time on the water is a precious commodity—I’ve seen this sport build, mend, save and sustain great friendships; and I’m happy to help foster that, for my old buddies and for any new ones this site may service. Welcome to and happy angling!

OK, this is really cool! If you haven’t seen it, has fishing conditions for any US location at this link. I even found the place that I fell in love with fly-fishing… Broken Bow, OK! Save it to your favorites.…

More fish in ’08!

Every year, I’ve made it my New Year’s resolution to fish more than I did the year before. With the exception of 1 year in the past 10, I’ve made it happen.

For 2008, I wish the same for all of you; as well a safe, happy and prosperous new year.

Spoke to Sheff yesterday... he's still trying to think of a cool enough handle. I suggested "Troy Mac-Lure." We were also trying to figure out a fishing situation for this weekend. Guppy, you in? We're thinking possible go up Friday night/Come home Saturday afternoon Kern run... Or possibly something local.

hey dude... so after that fab feast that you and Chrissy created and chit-chatting about your site, i signed up. my pops is an avid fisherman and we used to go all the time growing up. in fact, there's a yacht rotting away in my parents' backyard if you'd ever like to check it out! next up, it's my pops' bday on Thanksgiving, and us kids would like to get him a fishing trip getaway. do you have any suggestions for a simple & quick trip? he's perfectly content going solo. any help would be muy appreciated!! :) hope to see you and C again soon!
