  1. Is there any other kind?
  2. I don't like or dislike people, although I've been avoiding large crowds since the pandemic started. I'm curious though as why any one go to a concert to hear the exact same thing they can hear on a record? I go to hear something new. If the band can't improvise, I don't think very highly of them (except classical musicians, of course.) I've seen a few acts that played everything exactly the same as the record, and made a mental note to never go see them again. I still might enjoy their records, but see no point in going to see them recreate those.
  3. Sorry to hear this. Pay attention to what the doctors have to say, and get better soon.
  4. Stephane Grapelli with Martin Taylor -- Cafe Society, Philadelphia. Pink Floyd -- Spectrum, Philadelphia Merle Haggard, San Jose Any of the dozen or more times I've seen the Seldom Scene, but especially in Aptos, CA where they played "California Earthquake" within the shadow of Loma Prieta to a crowd that had all suffered damage from that quake. Squirrel Nut Zippers, at the Birchmere in VA. About half of the 200 or so times I saw the Greatful Deadm from sea to shining sea.

    Rainbow Trout?

    Allegedly, at any rate. I think most of their reputation for being hard to catch is that you can easily see that your efforts are failing. You miss the fact that there may be a dozen other, less easily visible, trout in close proximity that you're also failing to catch. But you know you're not catching the highly visible one.

    Rainbow Trout?

    Yep. It's also called a golden trout, but it's not the same as true golden trout (O. mykiss aguabonita, the state fish of California.) It's a hatchery creation, stocked in great numbers in many states along with more conventionally colored rainbows, to let the public know that a stream has been stocked. Nothing rare about them at all. The pellet pig shown has obviously spent it's life in a hatchery millrace. Not sure why it made the news.

    Most common in the ring finger, though.

    What he described doesn't sound like trigger finger at all. I've had my hand cramp up after fishing for too long. It sounds a lot like that. I now prevent it by switching casting hands from time to time, but I don't know what I'd do if it were caused by tying.
  9. When you're tying for show, rather than throw.
  10. Proportions look fine to me. I tie and fish this pattern a lot.
  11. I take it you're trying to keep people away from an already overcrowded (and much loved) stream.
  12. I'll be tying a Greentail (Pritt #33)
  13. True, but as tied originally in Michigan, it had a golden pheasant tippet tail, with wings tied spent and in front of the hackle. It wasn't until the Catskill tyers got hold of it that the tail became hackle fibers, and the wings moved back and tied upright. The video does show a Catskill style Adams.
  14. I'm in, assuming there's still room. Something from Pritt, I expect.
  15. As well as in several other delivery businesses, apparently. Can you say "conflict of interest?"
