Do you love big bluegill?
I'm gonna start another blog and that will be it till Winter sets in here.
HERE'S WHAT I THINK I OWE BRUCE FOR CREATING "BBG" " I OWE HIM EVERYTHING I CAN POSSIBLY DO FOR HIM , AND ANYONE ELSE ON HERE FOR THAT MATTER:
My reasoning is very simple . A while back Tony or someone created a blog for thanks to Bruce and that was fine , but it didn't last long enough in my estimation, or go into enough depth.
WHen I came to BBG a short while ago I was just browsing looking for something to do with my hobby of Gill fishing and somewhere were I might find like minded folk . I did right here on this site to my amazement and joy .
My life up till that point was basically like everyone else on here who is retired , or not retired , either way . Get up and do the chores for the day , check the weather , and see what I'll do for the day.
Now I have a purpose in life , to relax number one , enjoy myself in what ever I'm doing , and just kick back and see what's happening on this site !!!!!!!!
I used to fish for the same reason we all do , ENJOYMENT . Whether or not you are competitive in nature or not is of little importance here. It's about the fish and not us.
Yup I always wanted to be a teacher or lawyer , glad I never chose the later, but can still teach if anyone is interested in my opinions . Like Jim Gronaw on here I like to make bugs and see what they catch . This site gave me the opportunity to meet folks like Jim, Sir Jeffrey , Carl , DIck and all the rest on here. That would have never happened in my wildest dreams with out this site. Sir Jeffrey is of special interest to me because he TESTS anything new I can dream up . With some success I might add. That's partially because hes' a great fisherman and sometimes we come up with the right combo of size and colors for bugs.
Sir Jeffrey , and I say that with the utmost respect , has opened my eyes to different combinations of things when it comes to making bugs etc.
Without Bruce I never would have met him or anyone else on here .
I've taken my fishing and tying to it's last plateau . No were to go from here and don't need to . All I have to do now is read on here every day and learn all I can , AND I'VE LEARNED SO MUCH IT STAGGERS THE IMAGINATION......
THE SIMPLICITY OF JIM'S BAITS are in a class all there own also. NEVER WOULD HAVE MET HIM OR SEEN HIS WORK EITHER WITHOUT BRUCE.
NOW ON TO MY FAVORITES ON HERE : PICTURES !!!!!!! THE DIGITAL age has been a blessing for all of us . Anyone who remembers the ole 35 MM days can attest to the ease and quickness of taking and posting pics on here . I truly marvel Daily at the pics on a regular basis from all over the United States. Always thought Iowa was the west coast till I saw pics from Mr. Soto and the likes of him from out there.....
As BOB HOPE ONCE SAID " THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES " BRUCE YOU ARE A GEM IN MY BOOK ........
This site is all about fun and fellowship. I've just been lucky as heck that so many really good people have located this little refuge.
WE THE MEMBERS ARE THE REAL LUCKY ONES BRUCE AND THANKS FROM ALL OF US ......
as for myself-- I guess tooty - leo- heck everybody has said it a lot better than me!! like everybody else I was looking for a place I could connect to with good - descent people with a passion for fishing especially for bluegills! and to learn as much as possible from everybody I could. THIS SITE IS IT!! the most helpful guys I have ever met! and I have told as many people about this site as possible-- maybe even left a note or two at some bait shops on the wall!! we all owe bruce more that we could ever pay back to him!!
