I wanted to try something new for the opening page of the forum. I just found out from Juro that we have plenty of space on the server so I have a quick idea.

We have hundreds of images scattered throughout the forum (low rez) that have never been put together. I want to try and undertake the task of putting together a one click slideshow on the homepage that can show both new members and old some of our finest moments on the water.

So let's start this off and see what can come out of it.

To start off I want to try and keep things relatively uniform. Let's go with straight fish pics to start.

1. Angler and fish in a single shot
2. Any species
3. A fish of some significance (doesn't have to be an IGFA record but a fish that was important to you. First fish, personal best, hard won fish, trophy, etc.)
4. Email the highest resolution you have and I'll work on resizing and fitting it in with everybody else's images.

Email pics to

I don't know anything about copyright with this type of thing but I give everyone my assurance that their pictures will only be used for this project .

Feel free to leave any feedback in this thread.

Dave - will there be room for the story behind the pic? Wouldn't that be cool.

Sent you some pics tonight of myself and some fellow forum members. Hopefully I am not too late.

Thanks for offering to put this together. A very cool idea indeed.

Hi Dave
I have a few interesting (at least I think so) warm water photos.
I'll send you some if you like.

I don't many SWFF photos but I'm happy to contribute a few trout shots. Will that work?

Bring 'em on! Any species fresh or saltwater. I posted this in the Striper board because it seems to get the most traffic this time of year.

Moderators, please feel free to move this if it would make more sense. Any chance we could make it sticky somewhere?

I've gotten some great pics already and am very excited about what the end result will be here.

You'll have to stay tuned, this will take a while as I would really like to take the time to collect a very diverse set of photos to show all the experiences we've had.

Again the only criteria is fisherman and fish so the collection will have some continuity. We can get into shots of locales and things like that later if this works out.

My email again
