    The last part of June I was in Kentucky and hooked up with Jim Blake (Catsey) and he took me out on the Ohio River for an evening of fishing. We didn't catch anything but I got to go fishing with a brother.
    The past week matt (matt71269) was visiting my area from Louisiana and I was able to take him out here for an evening of fishing. Same story no fish, but an evening fishing with another brother.
    Without the BOC these trips probably wouldn't of taken place.
    I would like to encourage all other BOC brothers and sisters to take someone from out of state fishing if you have a chance. I have made some friends for life thru the BOC by fishing and going to gatherings. Please pay it forward when possible.

    Bluejay you have already paid it forward on my books, I was at the Mo. gathering and you let me use your phone to get in touch with my cousin that was coming from Kentucky with my new boat. without you we would have not met up. He died yesterday and that was the last time I got to see him. Thank you so much , If you ever need anything please let me know, I owe you one and I never forget my debts

    If anyone is in Tennessee after mid month October and wants to fish the Cumberland river, there is an open seat in my boat for BOC members.
