    Hey everyone , i want yall to help me welcome a good friend of mine and yours home. crisb is a member here on the BOC and he made it home safely from iraq . Well we met up with chris to welcome him home on thursday and to do some fishing . The guys and i put together a few dollars and picked up chris a new catfishing rod and reel and we all sighned it for him . Well of course we had to teach it to fish so chris and i and towny(boc member - countrycrazy)took off down to the dam. chris was the only one that ended up with a hook up-a blue around 1.5-2 lbs. They didnt want nothing we had to offer with a pole . Chris had some yo-yos out so we decided to bait them up and see what happens . Man fish on . we couldnt load the them fast enough . cats and croppie galore. We would bait them up and befor we got to the last one they were loaded with fish again . well we went to camp slep for the night and then we cleaned fish all morning :smile2: Let me tell ya folks - if you ever want to meet a great guy and a better friend you need to hook up with chris and towny some time . ive known them both for a long time and never was dissapointed with a gettogether with them . Chris thank you for all you have done over there in iraq for me and my family and everyone here on the boc and the USA. we salute YOU chris - your a great friend and a hero to us all---------your friend robert
    PS : sorry that one picture didnt show up that good :sad2:
