    Posted: 25 Nov 2010 at 3:15pm
12 Months ago I "flicked the switch" and made the LureLovers.com forum open to the public.

It's been a fun ride since then, and I am overwhelmed at the level of support the forum has received from you, the members of LureLovers.

As of now we have 552 members, 17,340 Posts in 2,097 Topics in 247 Forums, and there are in excess of 150,000 page views each week and rising! That's a lot of information we've helped each other out with, and I look forward to seeing where we are in 12 months now that we've had a chance to get an idea of how things can be improved here!

Thank you all for your part in making LureLovers.com the friendly community that I had hoped it would become. Each and every one of you have helped in some way to make our first year a great one!ClapClapClapClapClap



Cheers, Tony

For the love of Fishing Lures.

Happy birthday, "LURELOVERS"
Thanks to all involved in making a wonderful site.
It has helped me keep my sanity in this cold weather.
I love the comments, jokes, teasing, harassment, and the good information
that everyone shares.
Well done Tony and all the others.

Wow, over 10 years now since we started! 

Thank you all for your help in making LureLovers what it is, such an amazing knowledge base regarding all things fishing lures! 

it's also been fantastic to see many learn how to make their first lure and others becoming sought after luremakers amongst the best on the planet,  and all thanks to the generosity and sharing of our members, thank you for making all this possible. 🤠
Cheers, Tony

For the love of Fishing Lures.

Tony, I and many others laud the effort to create such a omnibus site; Excellent information on a plethora of topics, easy to navigate, wonderful people who are the salt of the earth...oh my sweet Gary Busey the LURES and their makers all aggregated under one site, what more to ask for, eh?

Don't change a bloody thing, except add a goat emoji/icon! This is needed to express those innefable things, ya know?

Thank you Tony, and all these great members formaking this site what it is.
