I often check the bottom of the page when I log on just to see who's around but can't believe the amount of guests looking at the forum , it's a pity these won't sign up after all the bigger the forum the bigger the bigger pool of knowledge we have, so if any of you guests read this please join us ,we don't bite , some of our fish do though , but you will be welcome .

Just looked at that because you mentioned it. 161 on at the moment. But rather than looking at the 'recent topics' they have most likely googled something and this brilliant site has answered their question.
So they might never read this post :(
But here's for hoping :woohoo:

This dates back to a time - some years ago now - when the Forum servers were 'hacked', Darragh sorted this out for us, but immediately afterwards we were getting sometimes over 2.000 visitors (or 'guests') at any given time. Thanks to his good efforts this number has drastically reduced but not gone away entirely.
At one stage we restricted Forum access to signed-in members only but still a reasonably large number of 'guests' were in evidence, which led us to believe they were, indeed, not real people at all.
So, bearing this all in mind, it appears there will be little opportunity of converting many of the 'guests' into becoming members I fear., even though attempts (not to forget Robert's latest one). have been made in the past.

So basically they are ghosts, but the question is do ghosts keep fish :cool:

Of course they do - I'll start the ball rolling with Phantom Tetras and Black Ghost Knife Fish, any others?

I remember a Jeremy wade on his program fishing for 'demon fish' but don't remember if that was an actual fish species or a made up English name!!
