    I was just curious as to whats the meaning behind everyone's user name.
    I mainly fish the Arkansas Rivers so therefore I am ArkRiverCatman.:smile2: I couldnt think of anything better at the time.:tounge_out::smile2:
    How/why did you choose your name?
    Some are self explanatory, others not so much.:smile2:

    The wife kind of gave me mine. I was looking for a name for the Catoon when I first bought it and just couldn't think of anything. I record and save every Catfish show I know about, one day there was a show coming on and I told her I was going to tape it on my "Catfish Fever" tape, she said, "why don't you put THAT name on your boat" That's over 20 years ago, been using it ever since. I have it on just about everything I own, the Catoon, my pickup, the Catmobile(fishing jeep), the Cathouse(motorhome):eek:oooh::roll_eyes::smile2: The way I came up with my logo, I orginally was just going to have a jumping Catfish. One day on the way to town, they were advertising the "Longford Rodeo", little town nearby. That's when the idea of having a caricature of me riding a Catfish hooked on a pole I was holding.
    A friend of mine who used to be a cartoonist for Walt Disney, came up with it after I told him what I wanted, he said he even had it copyrighted.
    Just before he died, he gave me the silk screen he made, so I can have more made when the ones I have wear out.
    More than you asked for Kyle, just thought I'd throw it in.:smile2:

    When I was a frat boy at KU we used to get a whole bunch of magazines under bogus names by checking bill me later.Till one time the bill collector came looking for Sam Mitchell {founder of our fraternity died in 1879}. We covered for him saying he was at class. So we needed a new name nobody could trace.I had a union shop steward named Delbert....And we created a redneck persona based on Floyd R Turbo American {Johnny Carson's redneck character from the Tonight Show}.We used to have a lot of good video game names: Robin Banks, Thugs Gunny,Rufus Isacat,Navin R Johnson {Steve Martin's character in the Jerk} etc.:smile2:

    my friend who works on my bows had this license plate that said BOWNERO. I guess you can say I stole the idea for my user name. stands for bow and arrow. I love archery and it's a passion of mine to hold for the rest of my years.

    Thanks.

    cause when I first got n this site I had just started catfishin and knew nothin and got everything I learned off this site from these experieced season vets. didn't really catch much of anything at first but practice and patience paid off. and now I whoop my fishin buddy(my sons grandfather)whos been fishin for quite a few years everytime we go out. and I believe its all because I use techniques and baits I get off this site. so I wanna say thank you too everyone that post here. and the boc staff for startin this great informative site.
