I would like to "come clean" so to speak on my behavior in regards to George Glazener, our long time and very respected Pond Boss patriarch.

Looking back on my previous posts, I would like to state without reservation, that I allowed my passion for ponds to affect my good judgement in the way I addressed our good ol' friend, George.

I feel bad for the way I phrased several of my posts, and I believe that the way I presented myself and my opinions to be the sole reason that George Glazener retired from the forum.

I really hope that George will look beyond some of my comments and realize that the great benefits he gives the forum will override any hard feelings he may have about the way I handled myself.


George, please come back to the big "internet coffee shop" that is Pond Boss, and give us the benefit again of your many years of experience in ponds, but most importantly life itself.

I miss seeing your contributions.

Bruce

That's a pretty nice way to start off the new year Dr. Bruce.

I don't think George fully realizes how many people,
appreciate his wisdom about ponds and growing fish.

Like you said, hopefully in 2014 we will see George
return to the PondBoss Coffee Shop.

Blair, it has been such a hit or miss crazy weather fall and winter not much fish to show, but did have one really fun trip - don't remember if I posted it before I got booted off the forum... grin

I have a sweet little 4wt flyrod I only use it in cooling water to avoid stressing the fish, so found a small #6 fly we call tne Brimanator in our area that I wanted to try = one new - other all chewed up:


I cast it a couple of times with no results and handed the rod to Mrs. G ......you know the rest of the story grin

Yay George is back!

George, I and a few others are a few of the originals on the site. Just wasn't the same without you George!


If pigs could fly bacon would be harder to come by and there would be a lot of damaged trees.

I am not acquainted with George, but he must be a special person. I will pay special attention to his posts.
