Flyfishing Forum, 2013

Hello all, hope everyone had a great holiday season with stockings full of flyfishing goodies.

With the new year, I will be facing a decision on whether to continue with the Forum or pass the torch to a new owner. The trouble of seeking donations to keep the site running is just more than I can handle with family medical issues, major changes in my personal life, and the need to stay focused on a wide range of challenges.

I will still be guiding and teaching but to keep juggling so many balls in the air is getting impossible.

So I am faced with the choices of (1) finding a more reliable means of supporting the site costs (2) selling the rights to the site or (3) retiring the project after over ten years of labor of love to keep the lights on.

I have put so much into this place that its hard, but I can not keep the efforts up as before. As it stands now the site owes hundreds of dollars for server cost alone.

So I am leaning toward selling to an interested party after many offers in the past that I have declined.

What are your thoughts? How motivated are people to maintain the resource as it is? Ideas? Opinions? Farewells?

As always, the podium is open...
