One month down...

Well, today marks one month since I've started this blog, and I must say that I'm surprised with how much of a following it's developed already. Thanks to all of you who've stopped by.

By the numbers..
  • 1231 - Number of page views I've had in the past month. I have it set to not track my own page views, but I'm not sure if it works or not. At least 100 of those had to be me, but I'm still surprised we broke 1K.

  • 10- Number of fishing trips I've made since launching this blog. That's a trip every 3 days. No wonder my wife wants to kill me.

  • 70- Percent of the trips I've been on where I caught fish and avoided the skunk. I'm guess I'm doing pretty damn good.

  • 3 - Amount of times I've fished the East Branch Perk and been skunked in the past month. I need to start avoiding that place.

  • 90 - The highest amount of referrals to the site, which came from Eastern PA Fishing Reports, following in a close 2nd by Troutrageous.

  • 2 - Number of times we were mentioned on Troutrageous's Wednesday Nibbles. I appreciate the traffic.

  • 14 - Number of countries that have viewed the site. This includes the US, South Korea, Canada, Croatia, Japan, Netherlands, Serbia, Belgium (p.s. I love your beers), Russia, South Africa, Brazil, United Arab Emirates, Ireland, and Turkey. I guess the French hate me, which is cool.

  • 10 - Number of google follower's I've acquired.

  • 11 - percentage of page views from a Linux operating system? That surprised me.

  • 5 - percentage of traffic that viewed the site from an I-phone. Interesting.

  • 22 - minutes I've spent compiling the data for this post so far.

Well, that's enough boring numbers. My fly box is pretty depleted and I have some tying to do. I ordered some things from Angler's Pro Shop and I stopped by to pick them up today. Expect a post on eggs soon.


  1. I'll take second for now, but EPFR goes down next month! Congrats on the month anny, you'd be surprised how many blogs are abandoned after a few posts.

  2. Yeah I noticed that. I've come across a few that look good and bookmark them, then go back a month later and there's no new updates.

    I was just about to make a new post on the 25 flies I just knocked out over a 6 pack of beer, but my digital camera died after the first photo!

  3. Congrats on making it through the first month. Keep it going and Thanks for sharing.

  4. Just stumbled in the door...sorry for not knocking first. It's a great feeling when people start acknowledging your "work." Nice place you've got here. Oh and if you haven't tried Flysim yet, give it a try for those days when you are too sick to get out.
