First time ever on this site. Thanks to Ziptrev for the invite.

I see a few familiar names.

For those I don't know - a little bio.
- From the eastern USA - North Carolina to be exact
- Old git - turn 58 tomorrow as a matter of fact
- Fish for most species that will bite and have been doing so for around 54 years (Dad believed in starting me off young :D )
- Fish mostly from my boat for all species - including carp and catfish
- Offer a standing invitation to any UK angler who happens to wind up near me for a day's fishing. If you should turn out to be an idiot (hasn't happened yet) I can always throw you overboard so all are welcome. :)
- No pike down here (too warm) and the perch are all small. Carp aren't in the same class as the St. Lawrence/Great Lakes area either since they are now taking the occasional 60+ common from up there but do have a lake with a good population and where no one knows how many/what size we have.
- Have strong opinions on most topics (and the less I know about them, the easier to have a strong opinion)

The scary thing is to contemplate some minature Troggs running around. I sincerely hope the offspring all favor his wife.

I know a secret about ole Trogg that I will share if you all promise not to tell a living soul.


He is probably the only angler in the UK who has a float that is shaped like the cartoon character Snoopy. I understand he only uses it during night sessions though so no one will notice.
