And it shows you what the over 60s can achieve.

I am doing very well thank you with my little consultative business.

Well done to all involved. I've visited many fishing related sites and considered joining some. But I feel at home here in this little piece of cyberspace.

It would be interesting to analyse just how many of the 30,000 regularly sign-on. This Forum has it's regulars but I guess many more are just browsing.

I joined up about two years ago and started contributing (if that's the right phrase) a few months after that.

In that time the numbers have doubled.

I'm inclined to agree, this is one of the most advice friendly and helpful angling sites out there.

It's just a pity, we can't get all those 30,000 to join the ACA as well.

Thank you, but it's not just me, there are a team of techies, my assistant Dave and Jonny before him, and a team of saleman, as well as the publishers and execs. OK, I'm steering the ship but I couldn't do it without all the help I get in the background and, of course, you members who are the real heart of the site.

When you consider those 30,000 who have signed up, you must also consider the number of people who regularly have a look at the site without signing.

I guess it's at least double the membership.

The "readership" of any publication is often 3 times more than the sales. Think of all those doctors waiting rooms.

It's interesting to consider the power of a site like this.

For example, one of the best threads was started by Graham on the subject of shotting patterns for stick floats.

This has developed into a dissemination of knowledge on the subject of float fishing in rivers that in my opinion is far superior to a single article by one writer on the subject, or even a chapter in a book for that matter.
