I understand we are the largest Online Trout Fishing Organization in the world. Many of our members are world champions and ranked internationally and nationally.

The great thing about NGTO is we are one big family. I have more friends through NGTO than anywhere else.

Even Buck is my friend.

For fun, open the Members List and click on the Posts column. That will sort from most to least, and vice versa.

Wow that took me back. I stumbled across this place in 98 in my first experience with the Internet - just looking around to see what I could find and searched "trout" and "georgia".

The place sure has grown a lot - both in number and in maturity level. I'm not the most sociable fellow, but I have been blessed to meet and fish with a handful of guys here. This board has also been a great way for my eldest (fishinbub) to make some quality contacts both as fishing buddies and in his chosen field of study.

It's been a great run, and though I've been in and out a lot it's nice to know that - like that long-missed favorite stream - NGTO is still here and always ready to welcome you back.

Roy, It's been a while since I've seen a post from you. I'm glad to see that you are still able to type and share some wit and fond memories. I too remember before Lanier was built and avoiding "shiners" in the mountains around Clayton. Ran into one while exploring a small creek off the Tallulah. He was about eight feet tall, weighed about 350 pounds, wore bib overalls and a round felt hat, and had a scraggly beard and carried a double barrel shotgun. He quickly convinced me that I "might not want to go no further". I said "yes sir" and headed back to camp.

Two of my most memorable and enjoyable fishing trips were with you on the Soque at Glad and Marty's place before it was Fern Valley. I hope to see you at the Fall Fling in Nov.

Yep.

Lots of the members mentioned at the beginning of this thread kinda ''showed me the ropes'' when it came to fishing around GA.

Plus there were a couple guys I met later when I went to UGA as an undergrad that I fished with a bunch as well. I owe this site for a few good fishing trips + good times.

So glad this site still exists, and I literally logged on to post this...as I usually just lurk

Well it has been quite a while since I've posted here. I lurk mostly, but used to be quite active as I was getting into the sport. Through NGTO, I learned to tie flies and even made my own rod! Anytime I have a friend wanting me to teach them how to fly fish, I make sure that they bookmark this site!
My favorite event that has gone by the wayside (but I would LOVE to see come back) is the Frostbite excursion to the Nantahala. I went to all but one of those, and I still go up to Brookside whenever I can. Those were great times, with great guys and great bbq! I would be interested in reviving it if anyone wants to help (Grizz?)

Man... I started reading this thread and got stuck in memory lane. Next thing I know I've been browsing the board for a couple of hours. It's still a great community after all these years ☺

Welcome back Kerry. Are you still in CO fishing for greenbacks?
