So when we first started there was only 3 members, Me, Sonarbp, Flyfishingfool (I still talk with them from time to time. For almost 8 months it was just the 3 of us no other members joined. I was ready to close it when forumotion said you must ask the other members if they want to take it over before we close it. I choose to just forget it and give up.
About the time that happened, I got a new member waxon67 (What the Heck) then another member and another. It slowly started to build and this allowed me to reach out to companies to see if they would support us in our direction. Smith Hnadpourd Baits which I mentioned before. But I know I had something when back in 2010 I got Big Hammer to join up and donate their baits to us. I could not believe they would support us as they did and still do. Then I got greedy I want a float tube company and the first one to jump on was Creek Company. I thought this would be a great thing and at the start, it looked good. But there contact person that I dealt with was just simply a pain in the neck and as I started to hear from members about poor customer service I pulled the plug.
This lead the way for first Cover Bonanza the clearance house for Classic Accessories, and then shortly after Classic Accessories join in on the fun. CA sent me my first Cumberland Float Tube which soon became the Forum's go to float tube. Since then we have supported and been supported by many other companies that have come and gone. We have also been able to help some companies get there starts and grow with the help of our member's support. As I have said before FTFF members are the best members out there thanks everyone.
