Good evening all,
This may supprise some but I became a Life Member because I didn't want to be bothered with paying my dues every year. It wasn't for the freebees or any other perks. I started fishing 60 years ago and really don't need much of anything, I spend less than 50 dollars a year on fishing tackle.
I don't consider myself a great fisherman, any better or worse than anybody else, Life member or not. In fact I became a life member when I joined the club in Feburary 2007. and didn't complete my profile or post on the forums or request friends untill this last January. I just thought one day, (I had some free time) that I would try it and see what would happen. Sence than I have met 6 or 8 really neat guys.
My guess would be that most Life Members are not active at all as I was before last January. That is their decission and doesn't make them any less of a life member than I. I may return to not being active on forums etc. at any time, just as before, but will still be a life member, but no less a life member than before.
I would guess that nearly all Life Members feel as I do. I wouldl hope so. How anyone else uses the Life Membership or why they became one is his or her business not mine.
I will be finished working in a couple of weeks and be back out on the water in my boat fishing. And my guess is that I will not be spending much time on the computer and I will become an inactive Life Member again. That's just the way I am, OLD AND INDEPENDANT. Good fishing to all. You all have a good day tomorrow and every day thereafter. lowwater
