Thanks guys,

I have avoided Face Book all these years because, and this will sound stupid,......... because of privacy issues.

Yeah, hard to fathom right? A guy with about 15,000 posts and threads on this and a couple other Salmon & Spey forums is concerned with privacy..... Duh

Right now the challenge will be to take time to get another web presence going. I have a responsibility to this forum and have been working up articles albeit short text types, to post on the web site of my own. I try to keep them short and to the point but each evening I am working on another. It seems I have a few folks who are stopping by to check for new stuff so I'm stocking the pond daily now.

Then there's the fly tying thing; I've been amassing materials and components for tube fly tying and have ran a few prototypes, they are looking good and should be good fish catchers. I plan to make enough tubes - cut shank Intruders - and Sculpin patterns to supply fishermen in 2014. Add that to my habit of tying Dee flies for my boxes and time is short

Then there's the work at the cabin beginning in January............

Thanks everyone, hit that page now and then and I'll look into this new face book thing

Ard

Ard, I have bookmarked your site and I will keep my ears open to referral opportunities. The SEO is an ever changing challenge in marketing. I will be heading to Alaska in a few years, and I will certainly consider your services. I am going with another couple that don't fly fish, so I may have to be creative to make it happen for me and/or my wife.

Fred is right Ard. If I or others posted a Facebook status that simply said please hit my buddies website because he needs some traffic, I'd have 50 hits in a day or so. A few of them would even be fishermen. I don't spend much time on FB, but social media is here to stay if you want net exposure. As far as the privacy issue I can't say I understand what the dangers really are, anymore than posting forums.
