    Hello to all-

    I'm glad I found BOC. I live in north central Texas just south of Fort Worth. I got back into fishing a couple of years at the urging of a friend who fly fishes. I was not interested in the expense or ritual of that pursuit, so I geared up for plain old baitcasting. Nice little Fenwick rod and a Shimano reel. We'd go out to the lake or river and I noticed something. I was not catching anything. Cast and crank, cast and crank. Talked to some catfisherman and found out they catch fish. So I got myself a Ambassadeur 6500 C4 and an Ugly Stik cat rod and have not looked back. I got a cast net for live bait and I also use DK dip bait. This is great. I catch fish and I have a good time. What else is there? I've learned a lot from reading here at BOC and just wanted to say hello and thanks to all. Oh yeah, my tricked out fly fishing buds just give me a silly grin when I haul 'em in and they go home with nothing.

    I saw a 50lb flattie caught on a fly rod. Took the guy forever to get it in. But he CPRd it and it still swims at that city pond. I prefer a lawn chair and a shady spot while I wait for some skillet fodder.
