A Day For Milestones

Hit the 70 follower mark today. Thank you all for reading what I write and for all the good comments you've left.

Apparently I've not been paying attention to the number of posts I've made since I started this blog in January 2009, because I went over the 200 post mark and didn't even realize it.

Finally, After much angst, I removed several blogsites from my blogroll that have not posted in more than 6 months. I wanted to keep all of them on there, but others keep popping up. If I've deleted you in error, please let me know right away so I can replace you. Can't have you wandering around out there in the dark.

Finally, to all those out there who have posted recipes for the flies that have worked for you, my local fly shop thanks you for all the money I've spent buying Marabou, hooks, hackle, and all the other accessories for tying those, or in some cases, trying to tie them.

Till my next fishing adventure, remember: "A bad day fishing is better than any day at work, unless you're a fishing guide".

  5. Hi Mark. Thanks for the comment on my blog. "Be too much trouble to trade in the one I have and train a new one." =)

    I have to say that I do like visiting your fishing blog. It is one that I will stay up on.

    Tight lines brother!

    What a true quote----I thank God everyday that I have the opportunity to fish and enjoy the outdoors. Congrats on your 70 mark, you can credit your success to your great post. I am really glad I found your blog, and I look forward to more interesting post.

  7. I do the same thing. If you haven't posted in a while, I cut you off the list. Sorry.

    Keep writing, dude!
