    Went to the Arlington Fish and Hunting Show today,and got to meet some good people.I will tell you the King family are some great people.They are down to earth,everyday people.I met Nathan,his dad Cliff,Larry Spillers,and Danny King!I probably wore their ears off,talking catfishing,the BOC,and Acats.I sure was disappointed,i had to leave early,and missed the seminar that Danny was giving.
    Also got to meet Dennis Rice,the president of Acats,also a very friendly
    guy.
    The first picture is of Nathan,myself,and Danny.The second is of their booth they had.
    Enjoyed visiting with you guys!

    Earnie, I went today also, and yes, you are so right about them King Boys. Great folks. Ya should of hung around and caught the seminar. Very good info was given and was fun also. I went there to meet the King's and buy one of those poles everyone talks about but wound up buying a Danny King Signature Rod. I'm thinkin' if Danny fishes it, I should too.
    I also was hoping to meet you and Berry, but couldn't find ya. Nathan told me I missed ya.
    I like to add to this, the King family and Larry spillers are more than willing to tell ya how they fish ! The BOC has a great sponsor in the Danny King Punch Bait people.

    Thanks, Nathan and Danny and Larry and the other Uncle's of Nathan's.

    Sorry T-Bone,
    Wished we could of hook-up.Ole Nathan's ear is probably still red from me talking to him.
    The King bunch are some good people,we started talking like we've known each other for years.There were quite a few people at the show,got pretty crowded there for a while.Let me know how you like that rod!
    The BOC does have a great sponsor with the Kings!

    Good to hear Ernie. That stringer of cats in the background has to be one of the coolest things I've ever seen. I want one for the mirror of my truck. LOL!
