    As for my self
    1 A place where their is a great wealth info on fishing that can found ever on the internet.
    2 It a great place to meet people from all walks of life.
    3 A place to share your point of views with others who care.
    4 It a place where race or creed or gender does not matter.
    5 Where every one can feel welcome.
    6 It is a good place to pass the time.

    I could go on but I will stop here. :0a27:

    BOC means to one word....... FAMILY! There are disagreements, jokes, tears but always LOVE. I am a father of a 17 and 14 year old. I have seen them argue and hold each other and laugh. I would say the Brotherhood is more than an "internet site". It is a place I call Home. Best doggone folks around.

    The BOC is a place to share my love of catfishing. Its never too cold or too wet to talk catfishing with a brother. If I sit down with my wife and try to tell her about my latest breakthru or talk about the big one I put back she feigns interest and gets back to whatever she was doing before I interupted her. Having a board full of information on the sport I love gives me countless hours of enjoyment on those days when mother nature insists I take a day off. I get to listen to the tales of the one that got away and the one that didn't that someone put back. The constant reinforcement of CPR and the friendly way newcomers are welcomed in to the fraternity makes me proud to be a member.

    The willingness of the membership to readily hand out useful information that they have spent years aquiring to someone who just registered that day. All of these and so much more make the BOC what it is. Thanks Paul for the asset and thanks to the power behind the BOC... the membership.

    I would have to agree with what everyone said and to add that you can sit there with another member that you may have never met but you start talking imeadiatly and for the most part "know" this person. You can joke and get down with the BOC brothers/sisters without having ever meeting them yet. I just got back from the Ohio gathering yesterday had a great time and met some of the brothers even tho I didnt catch any I still had a great time just talking and gabbing with my "friends".

    I've only been on here a little while, but I am already obsessed with the BOC. Everyday, the first thing I do when I get online, before even opening email or anything is get on here and see what's going on. It's a great place to talk fishing with people, not only catfishing, but all fishing. It's a very friendly environment, nobody talks bad about anybody else and we are all just happy to be sharing such great information. Other sites that I had subscribed to would become filled with flamers and trolls that would get on just to irritate others. It also helps to relieve my itch to go fishing if I can't go at that time. If I got fishing on my mind, which is quite often, and I can't grab my gear and hit the water, I will get on here and read others stories and tips and try and contribute as much as I can.

    The BOC to me is everything that has been said here already, and more. Plus, I have seen alot of people sharing there problems and the BOC family always comes to the rescue. The BOC is one BIG Family.

    To me, the BOC is Family members sharing themselves with others.
