    Then burn the entire ram on the altar. It is a burnt offering to the LORD, a pleasing aroma, a food offering presented to the LORD. God loves BBQ!

I have a nephew who just got back from Alaska where he worked as a guide. He never post on ngto . He only visits it the buy or sell fly fishing equipment. And the story is true for many of his friends age 20-35. I have followed ngto for 8-9 years. When I first found it I was all over it. Then as time went by I noticed the new people that came to the site and posted only did so a couple of times and then no more. I bump into people from time to time fishing that know of our site but stated that it's always the same guys that comment or post. And when they did they felt like the guys on here just didnt get them. That they were set in there ways and not open to new ideas. I used to just shrug the statement off and move on but know that I look back they may have been on to something.
      Ngto definitely has a wealth of knowledge with its members. Swamp Angel does a fantastic job with the Facebook page! He also started the instagram and twitter accounts. I've been a little more active with Instagram so I've stepped up to the plate to try and expand that avenue for ngto. I appreciate everyone's feedback even if you are an old fart! It may be trial and error for a bit but we will try avenues to see what works and what doesn't.

        Well, you are not being very fair here. As an organization, I would say we have made great strides in trying to bridge old and new social media here on NGTO. As stated, we have a solid FB presence and GP just brought instagram in to the picture. We certainly want and need the next generation of trout fishers to join NGTO and engage with their stories, trip reports, and share their fishing wisdom.

        But that does not necessarily mean that all of the older generation folks (like me) are going to embrace using all this new stuff. We definitely come from a different time. Hell, I am still trying to figure out how to use all the buttons on my microwave oven. But I do wonder sometimes, will this "digital generation" ever look back and regret having lived their youth with their faces buried in a 4 inch screen?

              I chucked at this comment too. You want to talk hassle; try having to go to the library and check out (and read) at least 20 books to do a term paper for school. Or in the case of our own Chuck Morris, having to write your term paper on the cave wall using lumps of charcoal from the fire.

              Am I the only one having a hard time believing Buck has 1. been to a library (the cart the homeless people push around Woodruff park doesn't count) and B. read 20 books? ( unless board books count)

                X2. No FaceSpace either. (And I'm only 37)

                I've been threatening my wife and daughter that I'm going to open a FB account, but I think they know I'm bluffing...

                I definitely agree with the comment about living life via a 4" screen...

                  And I remember my grand parents calling the TV the boob tube. So just a different medium for a different generation. Do you think you will regret sitting in front of your 60 inch for hours on end? Just giving a little perspective. But I'm definitely not going to argue that we all spend too much time on these 4" screens.

                  On a cool note back on topic! We just passed 100 followers in a pretty short time period.

                    My wife has a facebook acct... I have no face...

                    I'm actually worse then just "behind technologically"... I'm resisting that techno crap...

                    When I finally upgraded my phone it was only because the service went from analog (I think) to digital (I think), My wife explained it like this "the guy banging your signal out with two sticks on a log... retired"

                    wish I knew where chuck norris's cave was...

                        I wonder if First Nation elders sat around complaining about the gathering of new ideas and trading with new communities?

                        We don't need clay pots to cook.

                        Flint knapping? Why can't we just keep sharpening sticks?

                          I don't know. But one thing is for certain; being a smart a$$ will never go out of style.

                                Careful now! No one said it was allowed to catch up with the FB page!

                                Keep it coming, GP. You're doing it right apparently.
                                If you have difficulty understanding the post above, read it out loud and it should make sense. This NGTO member is known for his poor hill-billy upbringing and his affinity for all things from Louisiana (particularly if it relates to LSU). It makes for a poor mix of accents and much difficulty in translation. He was doing well for so long, but now seems to have regressed.
