Well this weekend I attended my first BOC gathering and it was a blast. I am new to the BOC and Shep invited me to go down with him. I met a lot of great people, and heard many good stories. I can't wait to get back out on the water with all of the people I met. I have done quite a lot of fishing since I was a child, but really haven't had the opportunity to do much in the past few years since I joined the military and moved down here from West Virginia. It makes me happy to know that I have a new fishing family, and now I will be spending much more time out on the water. Thank you to everyone there for making me feel welcome and showing me a good time.
