Just got back from a weekend down at the Great Southern Fishing Show visiting with old and new friends. We met a lot of folks who had seen the magazine and loved it, and also met a lot of folks who had absolutely no idea what we were talking about, and then there were some folks who were looking for the gutter guard girl they had heard about…hopefully I was able to convert a few of those. Look for some Georgia content in the Spring issue…planning has commenced. Until then I made Steve take some pictures.
It’s been a good week for SCOF. The new issue is doing well with over three thousand readers since Monday, and we have gotten mentions on websites the likes of Orvisnews, Midcurrent, Chi Wulff, Moldy Chum, and a bunch of others. To everyone that has already checked out the mag…thank you. To those of you that have posted the new issue on your various social media outlets…I owe you an aggressive hug which will be delivered as soon as I see you. If you have checked out the magazine, and liked what you see we have a favor to ask.If it’s not too much trouble, we would like to to recruit all of you to be our PR department. The hours are long and the pay is nonexistent…so it’s kind of like running SCOF. As our PR peeps we hope you will help us get the word out to those that have been living under a rock for the past week. So if you’re on a forum…give us a mention. If you have a twitter or facebook account…give us a mention. If you have a blog…give us a mention. If you see your Grandma on the street…give her a hug, she’s your grandma…then give us a mention. Every little bit helps.
Now that I am done recruiting ya’ll to do my job for me, we also wanted to remind everyone that we will have a SCOF booth setup down at the Great Southern Fishing Show down in Atlanta this weekend. We will have all our merch with us as well as few SCOF contributors that have promised to loiter about. I personally plan on meeting one of those Housewives ladies, and finding out what they’re daddies did to them to make them that way.
So in review, please help us get the word out about the new issue, and if you are in the Greater Atlanta area this weekend we’ll plan on seeing you at the show.
