putting together something. The proceeds of this order will help fund the Forum Migration.


Right now I'm looking to change our servers as well which will improve performance speeds etc. forum software will change from Simple Machines to something different. I located a webmaster. I haven't gotten her pricing yet.

I seriously would love silipints. But we would need at least 72. Historically we only have 10 - 12 people order meaning you guys would need to buy 6-7 pints each. at potentially 10 bucks a pop...

I like the silipint idea and will buy several.  You know you could make the forum Google searchable and boost membership  :eyeroll :lol

That will be the next phase. But you and others did SAY, that you liked it locked down because you are more prone to share reports. Just saying....

It's hard to ignore the problem of declining levels of new content.  Opening up the forum is the best chance of building a thriving online community.

I agree. A lot of the members that used to post here often just don't anymore. JeffSkillz Changes jobs where they completely closed off the forum from his browser etc.

jeff should get internet connectivity installed at his house.  A lot of people are doing it these days.  Some people, I hear, even use smartphones to post - albeit they don't always get the full post out

I'd also go for a hat, t-shirt, or non-cotton short sleeve something.

Or I found the company that makes the Cliff's Bugger Boxes....


I could always do some elbow grease on slit foam and figure out a nice logo for some custom fly boxes.

maybe if the salt water biased went away more people would post.
Just saying. I'm kind of tired of posting pics of 3-8 lb brookies just to have guys like ChrisM say "Big deal, I caught a striper twice that size".
It hurts my feelings. Otherwise, Chris could just take me out fishing, then I'd post striper reports and would fit in again.

There's an entire freshwater forum you don't read.
