Okay, time really flies when life happens and it is high time we had a get together out at our place.

I plan on having our fishing boats, canoes and kayaks available, I'll be glad to show off the Topias and hopefully have TP&L up and running by then.

We will need the same support form everyone!! I hope to have some fishing fun, some good conversation about ponds and lessons learned over the last year and a half, and just real good fun and conversation.

Whos welcome, well in short, anyone who has been there in the past is welcome. If you are new to Pondboss and are interested, please PM me so we can talk. Like most everyone here, we are very protective about our place and all the work we have put into them. I welcome all like minded people and can't wait to meet the new folks and welcome back old friends.

So, when is this get together? Saturday April 26th

And where? Our farm in East Texas.

The big pond is around 11 acres and it is close to full!! Fingers crossed, it will fill with the spring rains by the time we have the get together. Those who attend the last time had a really good time!

Here is what it looked like back then:

Phil, Phil, this is of most importance. If you do go BE REAL CAREFULL to follow the arrows painted on the ground (only to be seen from a plane or hot air balloon) showing everyone exactly where to park. I with absolutely no help from Cecil performed a major infraction by parking where I wanted on Scotts meager 9.5 acre parking area.

Dang Brian, I completely believe that. What if someone rides in on a Longhorn Mule? According to Ted Nugent they have them down there.

Mr Nugget might be smoking a bit too much, just saying. If a hitching post is needed, we have that covered, its Texas after all.

At this time, I have no reason to think that I can't make it.


It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

Both Al and Brian require adult supervision - I'll be there!
Dave, I will need able assistance - never mind, Heather and Robbie both are well schooled in "time out" procedure!

The N.E. Texas get-together at Brian’s place last year was one of the best pond management learning experiences that I have ever attended.
I personally knew of at least 50+ man years of pond management experience - probably more. The learning experience of shared knowledge was greater than any structured event I have ever attended, and having a lot of fun in the process.

More fun and fellowship ever for a bunch of good folks with common interests!
PM Brian and get your names on the list
Good eats - Brian and Heather really know how to throw a party.
