OBN Writing Prompt: To meet, or not to meet?

After I first heard about the OBN Colorado Rendezvous, I have to admit, it was a bitter sweet moment for me. Sweet because I think it will be a blast. Not only that, but I find it amazing how fast this community is growing and materializing into something tangible. It is bringing like-minded people together in many ways. Very cool. So, why is it bitter? Well, because I probably won't be able to make it. Spring is filling up with activities, and I have to choose wisely how to fill my schedule.

That being said, I will happily offer some of the people I think would be great to meet.

1. For obvious reasons, Joe and Rebecca. I really would just want to thank them for being the instigators of this little monster they've created.

2. Also for obvious reasons, there are the rowdy crew in Troutrageous and Owl Jones. They are pretty much everywhere I look on OBN, so I figure it would be inevitable that I see them at the get together. I imagine they will be the ones who get the group kicked out of the hotel. But it will be a good story.

3. Then there is Winona Fly Factory. To be honest, I'm not sure if he is a part of OBN, but I really enjoy his site. I like the area he fishes, and he has great photos, fly tying, and vids.

4. Angling Addict. Since I will be moving to Norfolk, Va soon, it would be great to meet this guy. I would love to catch some of the monsters he pulls out of the Chesapeake.

I'm sure I am leaving others out here. In general, I think this get together promises to be as interesting as OBN. I really think you could walk up to anyone and have a great conversation, and I'm jealous of those who'll be there. Maybe I could skype in :)


  1. Great list (and I'm not being biased since I'm on it) Even if you don't get to come to the get together this year, I have no doubt we'll do get togethers in your area of the country eventually. Until then, keep getting to know new bloggers and I'm sure you'll discover some right in your own backyard.

    And the skype thing is a great idea!

  2. Thanks for including me. I'd probably be there, but I wouldn't be the one getting everyone thrown out...I'm a sleepy drunk.

    Nice blog BTW, first time I've been here. Very impressive. A place on my ginormous blogroll you shall find. Huzzah!

  3. my favorite character from arrested development says "huzzah." Tobias Funke :) But for some reason, I think you know that mr troutrageous.

    Thanks for stopping by, both of you. I appreciate it.

  4. Oh, I know & have all 3 seasons of Arrested Development on DVD. I however do not suffer from nevernude syndrome. I saw an analrapist to cure me from that disorder.

  5. douche chill!


    I like when he touches the corn-baller.
