First off, if you're reading this on March 1st, head over to Ben G. Outdoors for the start of his online blogger scavenger hunt. There are a ton of great prizes up for grabs, and this multi-blog format should make for some real fun in sleuthing. It's kinda like online geocaching...but not as ridiculously dorky.

Clif at Lunker Hunt outdid himself with this Oscar Weigh-In post. This is awesome...really Clif, I'm quite impressed. The pictures say it all, so I'm not going to write a ton, but I had no idea Natalie Portman had such massive man hands.

Howard's holding a contest over on his blog, Sexy Lady Flyfishing..err..I mean Wind Knots & Tangled Lines. Based on the amount of comments on his post, you all probably are aware of this contest, but for those of you not in our little blog buddy clique, basically all he wants you to do is write a post about why you are a "fishing legend in your own mind." The prize is a reel, but my name is already on it.

Owl re-launched his site on Friday amid much hoopla (in his own mind). The most interesting aspect (in my opinion) besides the various levels - fly shop, photography, etc... - is the little chat box he added in the right sidebar. He's contemplating scheduling regular chats, which would totally bring another dimension to this whole blogging stuff. That said, I was never one for online chatting, I could never figure out the common acronyms...LOL, ROTFL, WTF?

There were also two somewhat saddening posts that are also worth checking out. I don't usually get serious around here, but for these two, I'll make an exception. Ivan touches on the upcoming loss of his local fly shop and the role it played in his development of a fly angler, while Swamp Thing mourns the loss, but also touchingly celebrates the life of a great friend. Must read stuff.

Finally over here, Troutrageous! is like 1 or 2 Facebook fans away from 100. My wife's business has like a bazilliongajillion Facebook Fans, so this is a relatively small milestone in comparison, but one excruciatingly close nonetheless. Go tell your girlfriend or Mom to "Like" me...as if they secretly don't already...
