      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

Book report "Eastern Tides"

4 posts in this topic

I have to say Frank D. has done it again.His latest book "Eastern tides,A surfcasters life" is fantastic.much like his previous publications.(all of witch I have read and enjoyed)the book is filled with helpful info but you have to filter out alittle BS.(Any surfcaster forth his salt will embelish his storys a little for content and emusment.We all do it from time to time.)He tells a story wonerfuly with fewer Pics than I would like but enough substance for the reader to form there own pics in there head.As a boy my Dad took me and my fam to those same places at around the same time.To be able to put my self there with him in the pages is a real treat.The beaches are the same but that's about it.With more restriction and less avalibilety both on the beaches and the striper those days of commercial rod and real are all but gone.But the knoladge and wisdom of his expireance can only aid us in our sport.

Two thumbs up.

Eastern Tides was/is an awesome book. More the life of rather than how to, but I thought it was great.

Not being a fly fisher (yet) I'm not sure I'll bite on the new one, but I can be convinced.
