    Gentlemen,

    I've recently found this board after doing some poking around on other hunting/fishing sites. It's good practice to provide and intro, so folks can get an idea of who they've attracted. So, here goes! :eek:oooh:

    I go by Floyd T. I live in Northern Kentucky and have lived my 43 years here. I was taught to fish by my dad and my Uncle; two of the best men I've ever met in my life. After a few off years, I'm working on getting back at it. I have a wife that loves to fish and hunt, so we get to share the seasons together. :big_smile: Much better than feuding everytime I want to go out. In fact, she's from western Illinois and has caught more fish and killed more deer than I. Yea, I'm jealous, but maybe some day I'll catch up!

    Catfishing is new to me so I'm here to try to pick up some pointers. My questions will prolly seem "routine" to most, so bear with me!

    Oh yea, I'm semi-retired and waiting on my wife to wrap up her PhD in Developmental Biology (research). Then we're off to who knows where. :crazy:

    Thanks for reading and I hope to hang around and learn from the "pros"!

    Floyd T.

    PS: I also love fine Kentucky Bourbon and good cigars! :big_smile:

    welcome aboard floyd. you'll not find a more friendly group of people than on the BOC. there are lots of articles and information already posted with most any topic that u can think of but any questions will be happily answered too. take a few hours to browse through the website and learn some of the different aspects of this wonderful site. we have a chatroom for direct conversations with other members that is alot of fun too.
    myself, i have been a member for a couple of years and spend way too much time on here but it's easy to get hooked on this site. i have made many friends and enjoyed several fishing trips to places that i have dreamed of fishing but didnt want to brave the spots alone. it sounds like you and your wife have a near perfect relationship. who could ask for more than sharing the outdoors with your life partner. i enjoy a little bourbon and a good cigar too. and my wife loves to fish with me. you and i are a couple of lucky guys.

    Welcome to the BOC Floyd. Great site and you will learn something every time you log on.

    I love a good hand rolled cigar but have to leave the bourbon alone, it makes me act like a idiot. I can do that without help. LOL

    Floyd,
    Welcome to the BOC. With over 30,000 members and over a million posts there is a lot to read. Using the library and the search option to look up specifics will save you hours but just wandering the site is good too, like an endless buffet. Don't be afraid to ask any question and feel free to offer any advice you have. We can all learn something from everyone...W
