A "hatch" of new members

I took a look at the member list by date joined and I thought I saw an increase in the joining rate. I did some counting and in the last 20 or so days we've had 62 new members while in the previous 20ish days we had 35 and in another random 20 we had 18.

I thought the boost might be from our show participation but of the 62 only 8 - 11 are anywhere near the Worcester area. There were a bunch from the northwet (yes I spelled that wrong on purpose) and a smattering from across the States, Canada and into eastern Europe.

Is it a fluke or did we do something that piqued interest? Maybe some of the newer members can let us know how they found us.

Now the bigger question might be what the heck am I doing thinking about stuff like this? I suspect it has something to do with the winter. I certainly hope it isn't permanent.

Maybe it was my digital map thread !! , man I will never bring that subject up again, but it got a lot of views the last time I looked.

A number more to come, I suspect probably from the international Spey Board which had over 300 members.

Yeah that thread did generate a bit of heat. Maybe people noticed the glow on the virtual horizon and came over to check it out? That thread though is a good example of what is great about this board, or rather it's members. Genuinely differing ideas and opinions were discussed with passion without crossing that flaming line.

Your spey board idea seems more plausible.

I hope no one resurrects that thread again.

I just may have to jump back in I feel so passionately about
keeping that type of technology out of our fisheries

And I am a technology guy all of my business career

The spate of Northwest guys joining up in the last little while is likely the result of the addition to the Steelhead forum of the extremely popular International SpeyCasting board run by Dana Sturn. His board is now known as the Spey Clave and it came with an enthusiastic bunch of loyal members - check it out.

I have checked out the site and it seems quite thorough and user friendly. Ever since Brian (Doublespey) treated me to a morning on one of his local rivers and gave me a brief spey casting lesson I have been dreaming of getting into it. All I have to do is get my wallet a little fatter and I'll be visiting all those gear review areas on the Spey Casting board and asking all kinds of newbie questions.

Gregg -

Tell ya what, let's both get our wallets fatter and go back to WA where we once belonged sometime to chase steelhead and salmon. We have Kush and Doublespey visiting this summer... let's roll out the striper 'red carpet' so when we do get out there they'll have to try to show us up!

Kush, Doublespey -

Looking forward to your visits this summer!

I've got a piece of red carpet that's about 7 miles long and terminates on a stretch of isolated and rarely trod beach where, if the rumors hold true, stripers of epic proportions cruise the tidal currents within easy range of the long wand.
