I want to tell you all about how the BOC is supposed to work. I have a friend named Tom, we fished a few times last year and I taught him some of the things he needed to know to kick-start his river flatheading learning curve, and he taught me some things about lake fishing for channels that opened my eyes. After getting to know me over several trips on the river he gave me the name of the guy that helped him learn the ways of channels on the lake. He said this guy loved Flathead fishing even more than I did, and I should call him up lol. Well I did, and I have not regreted it since. The first time I met Ben he was fishing, lol. We talked on the phone about Flatheads a few times after that and I understood right away why Tom introduced us. He thinks like I do. He want's to know the "why" behind catching larger size flats. Not just the where. We have had many talks on the river this year about everything Flathead related. I mean from rods&reels, hooks, sinkers, and line. To baits and seasonal movements. We have talked about it all, twice or three times. I have learned a great deal from this man in a short period of time. He has been fishing longer than I have been alive, lol. I've been sitting there listening and absorbing like a sponge all year. And I just wanted to express my thanks to him for expanding my knowledge, and giving me a sounding board for my ideas. Thank you Mr. Ben Noll. P.S. Sometimes out on the river you have to nudge him and say "Ben, Shhh, the flatheads are coming" lol.
