      Surfcaster's 2016 Reboot!   09/21/2016

      Howdy, folks. I know this is way overdue, and the damage is probably already done, but after weeks of working with the database I've finally wiped out all of the spam posts and topics. This was no easy task, considering there were three-quarters of a million bogus posts and nearly three hundred thousand bogus topics. Once a hacker/spammer network finds a vulnerability, they send out automated programs that basically destroy a database like this. Over the past couple weeks I've migrated all of the good data into a more current, secure platform with the hopes that we can somehow rebuild. New member registration is tightened way up, and a third-party spam monitoring service is in place. I've also invested in an awesome new gallery extension,  allowing members to create, manage, and share image galleries. Please give it a try, and let me know if there are any issues. I'm still testing and working out the bugs. Surfcaster's forums were once an amazing resource for everyone to enjoy, and we're hoping it can once again build back up. The main site (non-forums) is pretty banged up, but once the forums are complete my next task is to re-invent that as well. Spread the word. Hope to see a lot of you back! Cheers, Andrew

  1. it's done even though it 's a two day's late. I was given the pair of Black Crow feathers. from a friend who is a Native American. always had great conversations with him, when he was around, he never owned a car an walked everywhere he went or asked for rides. once a year he would head up to the north country for there season "POW WOW" for a few weeks. Always looked forward to his new stories. an time spent together. Sad to say he will never get to see this fly. his passing is bittersweet, the fly is done but a friend is GONE. with that said I know he would have relished seeing an keeping this fly. I named this fly as I know this is where he is now. This fly has 32 feathers in it. an I will frame it and hand it an with every glance I will see him. "BLOOD BROTHERS FOREVER"the name of the fly is " NAMIDA "Translation "STAR DANCER"GOOD LUCK GOOD TYIN
