    - Get a quick run down on the history of the BOC, "The Dirty Past"...

    - BOC in 1900 Walmart Stores?

    - $17 Cork Handled Fishing Rods?

    Special thanks to all the veterans present and past within the BOC... :wink:

    Thanks Cliff. Lots of the most ugly was left out. I will probably kick it out to the CS if there is an interest. Lost of back stabbing, taking down sites, and covert stuff.

    Great video Paul. Pretty neat to hear how the BOC came together. I came on to the Brotherhood site in '04. Wish I would have known of the older sites, but when I was younger catfishing wasnt as important to me as it is now. Thanks alot for all youve done. Youve united alot of good people from all over the nation.

    Have a Great 4th !!!

    (AW) is impressed for what that's worth to ya Chief. Excellent, excellent explanation. I think I was somewhere around the 11,000'th member in Ought 7. Can't remember and didn't check. Have enjoyed the place since day one. I am on a different planet at times but I like to come back to this one because of the folks.

    Words mean things and words strung together like you did impressed me and made you human to me. We have had our pokes and I apologize for some of the things in my noggin'. I needed your explanation of this joint. Won't make me a totally good boy but I would tip one with ya anytime, now knowing you can shoot straight.

    Happy Birthday.

    John.

    Good Morning Paul and all of the members. Happy 4th and Happy Birthday Paul. Dang, we have come a long ways thanks to you and the staff. I've rode along under two diff names for a little over 10 years and have enjoyed the ride and all I've learned from everybody. Now if I can stop forgetting all I've learned I'd be a heck of a fisherman.
    Really enjoyed the video. Had forgot a lot that happened along the way.

    Thanks for the history lesson, Paul. I really enjoyed learning how it all came about. On your part, Paul, it was truly a labor of love and I appreciate all you have done to bring it about. No doubt the most complete assembly of catfish lore in history....period. If what you are looking for isn't on here, it doesn't exist.

    Been around through catfisherman.net and all the transitions since. Served on staff here and am still on staff on the "old" site.
    This is undoubtedly the best and largest assembly of catfish minded people on the planet. One man's vision has become the "hobby" and "habit" of thousands, including myself.
    Thanks, Paul, for the countless hours, the constant headaches you've endured, the companionship, the good and bad times, and to the man I'm sure we say, "Keep on keeping on!!"
