Cant deny this site has become somewhat addictive, and during the worst days of winter it can almost be a lifesaver as I bounce off the walls.

This site has really grown over the years, and Im sure glad to be part of it. Many years ago I bought my Son a PC, I had never used one, I ask him to get me to a flyfishing site and this was the first one he came to, been here ever since. I didn't post much in those early days, couldn't type, I've gotten a little better, NOT MUCH!

Sometimes I sit back and try to think of all the people I've meet and fished with, believe me it's been many, so many friends and I've fished with some great fishermen and have learned a lot from this site.

So I want to thank Dave and everyone else!

Thanks
PaulG

I think is by far the best fly fishing forum out there. Congrats to Dave and all moderators for a job well done.

Dave, I have a question. Do you happen to know the total posts since the site's original inception? When was that... 1994 or 1995?

Just a thank you to Dave and everyone else who makes this site what it is. This is one of the first places I log into every day at work to see what questions I have, can answer, or just have something interesting to read to start the day out. I can honestly say my fly fishing abilities have been improved atleast 10 fold due to the information and tips I have recieved on this site. It's been interesting in the last year especially that I've now been able to help others out and bring new people into the sport. So thank you everyone for making this site fantastic!

Tight lines

p.s. is it steelhead time yet?

As the counter rolls up I see the GulfGreyhound posted the 100,000 post on the site. If I had prize GG I would get one. Thanks. More importantly his post was to a new member welcoming them to the forum and he typifies why we have a great site here.

Thanks to GulfGreyhound. A special thanks to Maurice, Pad and Jack for all the help they provide on the site and forum.


Wow!I got another First! Prize, tell Maurice to send me a hat, mine looks Ratty.
Tells you how good the site is and how much backing it gets.Sort of habit forming. There is a cast of characters here that defy one imagination.Tell you what Dkile, I'll come to next years jam and you can buy me a beer,ok?

Greenghost,

The site started in December of 1995. It was a just a bunch of basic html pages that had maps of each county. I created the maps to show where the special projects were located.

I then started adding tips, news, stocking reports, laws and finally Stream Reports in Fall of 1996. Sometime in 1997 I had the first message board.

Dec 1995 there were about 5 visitors to the site.

I recall when the message board was added. I was 12, and it provided TONS of info to help out with my insane level of curiosity about the sport.

Dave,
I was probably one of them. I DO remember those graphics!

It must give you great pride to see how the site has grown -- like a son or daughter -- again, great work. (And a lot of great people.)

Thanks! And here's to the next 15 years!



(That's a Guinness.)

Congrats Dave. It is always nice to celebrate milestones and hitting 100,000 posts is certainly a milestone. I sometime wonder what the cost is in lost productivity that could be attributed to this site.

It has been a weird strange trip in some ways. Only started the site because I was interested in learning how to create a website and was pretty passionate about fly fishing. Added more as I the Internet advanced and requests came in.

I really remember Maurice and Pad pushing the most to evolve the forum. Probably the most surprising for me was that Maurice was telling me people were sharing information on the forum and then finding ways to meet up and go fishing. Something I never expected.

The real fun is reading all the good things people share here and the help for new anglers to get started. Mountain Lion debates are fun too. A topper is when I am out fishing I hear someone talking about the site on the stream or at a bar afterwards.

I think our real opportunity here and one not to be overlooked is the unified voice that we all share in the betterment of fly fishing in Pennsylvania. I would love for us to find some common ground on the issues and make sure we are heard by the PBFC.

Enjoy and make a difference.
