Come to the next Smallmouth Alliance meeting in St. Louis.  I'm giving a little talk on the lures I use and when, why, and how I use them.  I won't tell any exact locations there, either, but I won't purposely keep any secrets about lures and tactics

 Think that is a nice gesture AL. My Thing is I been fishing about 73 years. I had to learn hands on what would work and when. I have q friend that every time he fished he would go home and record every detail of his trip he had notebooks full of stuff. Wrench will variety this. He went on to win a nationsl FLW championship. you can tell them all you want but unless people learn to  STUDY and FEEl what's happening at the end of there line and why they struggle no matter what you tell them.

As far as the Meramec goes I used to spend q lot of time between the birds nest and Onandoga. I been gone from that for many many years. a couple of years ago we had to attend a funeral of a friend in Leasburg. I took a drive down to the river for old times sake. What I seen down there at Ondaga Mede me physically sick. People will destroy that river there is no doubt in my mind.

well said Al Agnew.  I would help out any one of you guys on this forum if given the chance.   Lord knows I have been helped tremendously by guys who never even seen me.  I've even had maps with red dots sent to me.  All I had to do was go to the red dots that marked the honey hole   Otherwise I would have been lost on that watershed 

You certainly helped me!

Thanks again.

To give you an idea of Hog Wally, he heard I got a jet boat and contacted another forum member to get my phone number and HE CALLED ME.  He let me use his ramp so I could get used to launching without a crowd waiting and watching.  Gave me the short tour of his section of river. 

What more could anyone do?

Parting thoughts, in appreciation to those who came to my defense. It’s a rare an honorable trait to extend one neck for a complete stranger these days and I do thank you.
1.    Al you are as talented writer as you are artist, but if it ticks you off, then maybe the truth stings little.
2.    “all that disrespectful” is an admission of quilt and your opinion is irrelevant, imo.  So why not discuss what the meaning of that, is?
3.    Until the left fundamentally changes this great county to communism, I can grab my balls and go anywhere I want anytime I want. Period. 
4.    Fact is, I did quite well before joining OAF by shear determination. So in reality OAF maybe the loser of information that I may have acquired in over half a decade of fishing experience. And my ability to solve problems and look at things from outside the envelope.
5.    If you all would step down of your podium, you may see how condescending you really appear to peon like me. One of the greatest teacher the world has known, never taught from a podium, but by example. He is my Lord and  Savior and I praise daily.
6.    Continue to shovel bovine fecal matter if you need to make yourselves feel better. It’s a great county and you still have a first amendment rights to do so. I just don’t time, or want, to call people out anymore. The fact is, you do have one very ugly baby on your hands! And treading on others people pursuit of happiness is not going to bring back your fishery. 
7.    I think some  people have benefited from me being here the last couple, so I have no regrets.
8.    I think I have removed all the info about myself that I’m going to, so so-long folks, it’s been fun.
