Blessings....

Post by PastorBen » Fri Dec 22, 2017 2:16 pm

Hey there

Well once more we have come to the end of another year of TRs, fly swaps, and various posts that define what this August board….I understand that things
have changed and the Facebook thingy has redirected some of our thunder….I too need to apologize for my lack of participation in posting TRs and such…but family matters and obligations have kept me pretty busy and away from the computer….

It is a comfort to know that the talent that permeates this place, whether it is with a brush or pen, or flytying vise, or camera, or word, is boundless. And that the bar of excellence is continually on the rise in this place….As we now stand in the midst of holiday season, I pray that it is one of joy and laughter, of family and friends, of fishes and merriment. That the new year is full of feisty fishes, good weather, and favorable waters…
