Welcome everyone to the second edition of CatfishNow (CFN) digital magazine and social media platform. We are extremely pleased to bring you our monthly collection of catfish related content and we hope you will share it with your friends, relatives and other catfish enthusiasts.
I want to thank our small, but mighty staff, for the time and energy they put into the first issue. Your feedback on issue number one was overwhelming and the gratitude expressed for our efforts on behalf of the catfish community was much appreciated. Comments like, “good read,” “awesome job” and “the right steps at the right time” are encouraging feedback that tell us we are delivering what you want in the magazine.
As you delve into this second edition I want to encourage you, as readers and as advertisers, to continue the feedback and tell us what you think of this and future issues. We want our content to be aimed at growing the sport of catfishing to the benefit of all. We look forward to your comments and will seriously consider them as input for future editions.
I also want to thank our great sponsors that stood behind us in launching the first issue of CatfishNOW. It is because of them and future sponsors that we are able to offer the magazine to you for free. I certainly hope you will reciprocate by supporting them when you can.
We end each issue of CFN with tournament results, club lists and tournament schedules. If you are a contact person for a club or tournament be sure to check the last issue and make sure you are represented in the appropriate place. If you are not listed, or information is missing, please contact Angela Pearsall at firstname.lastname@example.org and let her know that you want to be included.
The cover photo for this issue was provided by Terry Madewell. The 76-pound cat was caught by Brian Cope (Managing Editor of CarolinaSportsman.com) while fishing with Capt. Gene Crawford. Madewell photographed the big Santee Cooper blue cat just before Kevin Davis (Blacks Camp, SC) released the fish back into Lake Moultrie. Read the details in this month’s River Rumors column.
Fish with passion,
Ron Presley, Editor
