    Welcome aboard..........sorry for the late welcome...........
  3. welcome aboard.........things have been a little slow the past couple days, but should heat up tomorrow (sunday). There is also a session scheduled in the chat room at 9:00 pm (Sunday). should be lively this week with all the guys getting back.
  4. Welcome aboard...........things should heat up tomorrow as a bunch of the guys are in Pa. on a fishing trip and are due back then.............they promised a lot of pic.s.........the chat room will probably be hopping tomorrow night (Sunday)around 9:00 as well.
  5. Awesome.............I'm playing w/black deer hair head, black chenille body, and I'm making the tail out of some orange Kip tail i had with some flashabou thrown in.......I thought that might be easier for the wing. What do you guys think? i thought because of the body shape and the really long wings, I would use the orange kip tied in at the tail to mimic the wing with the flashabou to mirror the light like the natural clear wing in between the orange veins. I also had some orange elastic to tie in at the head for the legs. Does that sound reasonable? Do you think I'm placing the orange "wing" to low on the body?

    crappie tail

    Posted Land

    I don't know if they can do that to you from a boat.......If the River runs into the Great Lakes, it may fall under the Federal Navigable Waterways Laws which if I remember correctly, takes you up to the first dam.......hell, i don't know......
  10. Sorry, i probably should have posted this on the flytying bench.............

    Computer Crash

    The hard drive won't be difficult to replace........you shouldn't need any tech help.....just be careful of static electricity........It will take longer to open up the tower than it will to pull the old hard drive out and slip in the new one.
  23. I don't know how long they have been out, but the "Scenic rivers" Plate now has a Smallmouth jumping on it............how cool is that?
  24. Yeah, i know your busy right now................just something to keep in mind for the future.................. thanx, mike
  25. I had the misfortune several years ago of planning a weekend at "Ohio power Lands"............Little did i know that one of those "5 year broods" had hatched the week before. When i got there, the ground was littered with all these dried out husks and the fish were in "food comas".............If memory serves me, i think this hatch lasts several weeks.........
