    Here's a brief history that I can somewhat remember from back then.

    Around '97-'98, everyone was meeting at the carp.net chat room, Oatmeal Jack created a chat room for the catfishermen.
    Yahoo group was also formed, and someone(Uncle Sci-Fi?) started up a forum/webpage. At the time, I was only on the chatrooms.
    Oatmeal shut down the chat rooms, and I lost contact with everyone.
    Over the next few years, I did find the forums again, but either didn't bookmark or the address changed.

    Then in May 2002, Paul fired up www.brotherhood-of-catfishermen.com, which was the new home for the next 3 years.

    Then in August of 2005, he moved the Brotherhood to www.catfish1.com, where we've been since.

    As far as I know, Catfish1 is the fifth life of Brotherhood.

    Now to get Paul to write a little history of the B.O.C.

    Will

    Thanks Will! Paul has a video on the history of the BOC. I was just bored the other night and searching old threads and was wondering what the first one said. I'll find that video and post it for you. Thanks again!

    AHH here it is!
