I’m very interested in learning all I can from whoever is willing to teach about our amazing hobby. I have free time and I’m serious about learning. I will do all I can to help with the things I know as well. It is best to text me on my cell y’all and my number is +14705697841
Tim – By being on this web site, you have opened the door to a very experienced group of fish keepers, and I can’t think of a single one who isn’t willing to share their knowledge with others. If you haven’t joined the club yet (i.e. a paid membership), I’ll recommend that as a first step. While the regular in-person monthly meetings are on hiatus because of you-know-what, the club has started monthly virtual meetings for members only. The guest speaker format is what you might expect, with a presentation, lots of slides, and Q&A. Topics are just about anything fish related. While it might not be a topic in which you have a specific focus, there’s always something new and interesting to glean from the speaker. Well worth the time, and more convenient than ever from a time and travel perspective.
Once you are a paid member, you can join the member-only Facebook group, AAAA Member Group. Even if you are not a paid member, the club’s “public” group is available to you, here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/45997858493. There is much activity for this group, and a reasonably good place to get answers. You must request to join. This requires you to read the group rules and answer 3 questions. Facebook is not a place for individuals to buy and sell livestock, part of the Community Standards which Facebook (selectively) enforces. I find this FB group gets more traffic than the club forums, but you can buy and sell freely here, and not on FB.
Once the club gets back to in-person events, there will be many ways to volunteer.
Before long, you might succumb to MTS (multiple tank syndrome) and WBS (white bucket syndrome). This hobby can grow on you.
