    This Nebraks forum is fairly new. There is a long history of and I’ll spare you the lengthy details but I’ll tell you that it had been focussed on the Minnesota and Wisconsin waters in it’s early days. But, over the past several years we have been expanding into other states and only recently added Nebraska. We now have a few Nebraska staff members: Ben Garver, Todd Consbruck, and Zach Fries. I also provide some reports for Nebraska waters once in a while.

    How does one get to be on field staff? Good question. Field staffers are generally folk who have been posting on In-Depthangling for a while and have “caught our eye” so to speak. If we see a member who post fishing reports or provides valuable information to members, we might ask them if they have any interest in joining the staff. There’s a lot more that goes into it than that, and there are always other ways a guy might join the team. If you or anyone you know is interested in being a part of the IDA staff team, ny suggestion would be to start posting helpful information for your fellow members. Believe me, we pay attention. After you’ve been posting for a period of time it wouldn’t hurt to send a note to one of our committee members of staffers to let them know that you’re interested.

    So you know what we look for… We look for members who conduct themselves appropriately in the forums. We pay attention to a person’s chartacter, as well as their ability to catch a fish. We like to see pictures. A fish story without pictures is… well, just a fish story. Pictures really make the website much more interesting and exciting. And, of course, we look at a person’s skill level. A field staffer is someone who should be able to offer techniques and advice to members. They don’t have to be Al Linder, but they should be a skillful angler, AND be able to communicate well to our membership.

    I’m sure I left out some important stuff, but this is off the top of my head. If you have any other questions please let us know.

    They don’t have to be Al Linder

    That’s a fact! I don’t know the differance between a Scum Frog and a Omaha Rig.

    Welcome Bigbass!

    I will tell you from experience that this IS the best site for fishing info I have ever come across! I have learned sooooo much by just “hanging out” on the site and reading the posts. The whole idea behind sites like these is to bring together like-minded people and exchange ideas. This site, unlike most others, actually does just that! These guy’s are the best! I have never seen more fishin’ folk more willing to teach and expand our sport! Great to have you aboard!!!
