Four years ago today BROTHER BRUCE welcomed me to this site!!!!! Been a LEARNING EXPERIENCE!!! About Bluegill and the different ways to catch them!!!!! The different SPECIES, and the different names for them all around the COUNTRY!!!!!!!! I have learned to use a COMPUTER, a DIGITAL CAMERA, and how to POST THEM!!!!!!

I have met a lot of GREAT FOLK that share in my ADDICTION to catching them!!!!!!! I hope one day to meet many of them!!!!!!!

I am a FLY-ROD fisherman only!!!!!!! Also TYING FLIES, and over the last four year have met here some GREAT TIERS that have introduced me some GREAT GILL GETTERS!!!!! 

So for my BIRTHDAY I have assembled a collection of some of my GO TO FLIES!!!!!! I would like to give them to SOMEONE here on BBG!!!!!!!! FOR A CHANCE TO WIN, all you have to DO is wish me HAPPY BIRTHDAY, and maybe SHARE what YOU HAVE LEARNED HERE ON THE BEST SITE ON THE WEB!!!!

Jonathan, trust me when I say Victoria's Secret can make a killing with the fly fishing industries, that is, if there's are more ladies getting into the fishing arena. I need to find the photos where my wife actually was wearing the Victoria's 2008 two piece bikini while doing fly rod-micro spinner reel fishing off the shore near the weed line at Lake Gregory for trout. I still can't wrap my brain around that moment in time. Wish I had Greghopper's booby flies, and it would have been..GLORIOUS!! Okay..time to get back down to earth.

Finally got around to reading this thread :)  Happy BBG birthday!  BBG is the best! I think we have the best web community anywhere.

Leo, I'm not so sure about this whole Victoria's-Secret-meets-fly-fishing thing. I just don't have much confidence that fishnet waders would be effective, for instance :-)

Leo I can't wait for this one.
