Good cyber mates some of whom have managed to meet several times with more arranged or yet to be arranged. This is due I think to the type of angler attracted here, and is repeated from the top down.
We all take the serious business of fishing and apply the required amount of humour John

chill out go fishing

Hey alio
I am fairly new to this site as well.
I spend so much time visiting the site that the missus asked me at the weekend if I was chatting up a piece on the side.
They really are a great bunch,and although Ive been fishing for more years than I care to remember I have picked up some good info from the site.
Special mention here for Trev,Splodge,Newt,Martin and all the Daves.
Speak to you soon

Hi Dazalio,

One of the main criteria that I used when I decided to launch the site was humour and fishing. Myself personally, I don't take life too seriously but prefer to laugh through the good and bad times and treat each with it's own merit.
My main hobby is fishing so it was decided to combine the two, why not have a site that is fishing orientated but also encompasses the lighter side of life. Most coarse anglers that I know have other interests as well so the site was/is being developed as a 'Meeting place for Coarse anglers' where we can all exchange fishy tales and info, have a laugh and above all meet others (on-line or off) with a similar interest but not specific to.

These days life has it's own hassles and most people go on to the 'net for pleasure (or info) so let's have somewhere where we can all unwind, have a laugh and drink a virtual guinness


Regards, Dave

dazalio - lots of the folks on here will have met in person as a result of posting. Fish-ins and such.

I live a bit far to have met anyone yet but Ziptrev is crossing the pond next month so I can then say I have met at least one.

This is a super friendly site. Nice folks and fun posts. And a large well-done to the owner and his mods for keeping it that way.

Little things that happen are nice too. I mentioned on another site (and quite a while ago) that I was curious about the Big S lure all the lure anglers were talking about. So Trogg sent me one. So I sent a rod/ree/float sized for his little girl. And so it has gone. I later (and from someone else) got a couple of long UK style rods (well, long for the US at 11ft
). He wouldn't give me a clue what he might like so I sent ultra-light rod/reel/lures to a couple of other folks. And all this from getting to know them on angling boards.

These are the world's greatest places to get information. Whatever your question, someone knows an answer. They are also super for meeting (or cyber meeting) some great anglers.

When i first started on the net i was warned not to confuse "cyber" & "real" friendship, so far i have only a couple of regrets but i still class most the people i talk to on the boards as friends.

The first time i ever sent anything to the states was Newts lures & i hope he's caught with them as well (talking about that Newt has that hook tyer arrived??).

I have had the honour of meeting many of the posters on here , they even came to see me at work as i couldn't make the last fish-in.
Which really made my day BTW, so you see Daz its a site like this that makes the net worth while & believe me mate you'll never be sorry for joining in on MD.


Dave
If you started this site with the fishing/humor intention then why the hell am i a mod??

I mean c'mon mate when do i get to go fishing (or catch,,, before you say anything) & what sense of humor have i got???

Hi Dazalio,
As you have realised,everyone on this forum,would seem to share the same attitude.........We love our fishing (be it match,pleasure or specimen) we like a laugh and there are no secrets.
We aren't here to pass judgement,we are here to help.
Ask a question and we will all do our best to give an honest answer/opinion.
This site is only as good as the sum of it's parts,and the parts are all the posters,without all of you,all the hard work on Dave & the team's part wouldn't be worth anything.
deal.gif Come on now get posting.

Peter.

Make Friends,Go Maggotdrowning.
