Well as may have guessed, this marks the 200th post on BrookFieldAngler.com!

Before I get to the massive giveaway, a few quick thoughts....

This little blog has grown by leaps and bounds over the past couple years and it keeps getting bigger! We are currently averaging around 7,500 page per month with hundreds of friends through Google, Facebook, and Twitter!

I started this blog with no expectations or knowledge of what blogging was all about. For me, it was a logical place to post stories for me to look back on and maybe even learn from. "What worked in the past?" "What didn't work?" were a couple of things I thought could be useful in the future. I had always been mildly interested in website building so I also saw it as a way to tinker around here and there to learn a bit. 

I have to admit that I never expected to see it grow to what it is today and I can't wait to see what it has become in a couple more years. 

I would like to send out a few "thank yous" as well starting with Blake from Illinois Wisconsin Fishing who was kind enough to share my page on his own. I have tried my best to return the favor and pay it forward and will continue to do so. I would also like to thank the Outdoor Bloggers Network for giving us bloggers a central place to discover, learn and share. 

In addition, I have to thank the other writers on the site and those who have found the time to do a guest post here and there. We wouldn't be close to that 200 post count if it wasn't for you1

I will also not forget all of those people and companies that you see at the top and side of the page. They have really helped make this passion of mine a much more affordable endevor - Custom built Rods from FSA Custom Rods, some of the best spinners on the market from Sims Spinners, the absolute best soft plastics out there from StankX and Bizz Baits, and huge pike flies to name a few!

Finally, thanks to all of you who have taken the time to read, comment, email, etc...This place would be a lot more boring if it was just me!
