Welcome everyone to the May edition of CatfishNow (CFN). We are pleased to bring you our monthly collection of catfish related content in a completely new format. We hope you will share it with your friends, relatives, and other catfish enthusiasts.
Regardless of the coronavirus, here at CatfishNOW we continue to work hard at promoting the sport of catfishing. Beginning this month, we have left the old page flipping model behind and offer our content in a new website version aimed at ease of use where readers can learn as well as be entertained.
CatfishNOW has become more than a magazine. It is now a compete catfish resource that allows readers to pick and choose their reading interest from stated categories or search for any topic that might be on their mind.
Readers still have easy access to all the stories and columns with the added benefit of being able to search the entire data base for different destinations, techniques, how-to material, videos and more.
As development continues, we will add a bragging board where you can upload your favorite photos, a shopping cart, and a classified section where boats and other items can be sold.
A new event calendar will allow tournament managers and directors to post catfish events where tournament anglers can choose the ones they want to fish. It will also allow tournament results and pictures to be uploaded.
Our intent with the new format is to stay abreast of new technology and improve our ability to be a positive influence on both experienced and beginning catfish anglers. There are millions of stories to tell and tips to reveal. We can only scratch the surface in a single month, but over time we can cover a lot of them and they will accumulate on the new searchable database.
If you know of a story that needs to be told or a tip that you would like to share, we would love to hear from you.
As always, I wish to thank the great sponsors that support us. Because of them, we are able to offer the contents of CFN to our readers free of charge. I hope you will help thank them by considering them when you are in the market for catfishing supplies.
Fish with passion!
