  1. Thank you... I do miss the Cape of Cod more than words can say ! Maybe next Spring for a refresher... Those were the DAZE !
  2. The Rebel Triad Alliance... Those were the Daze ! Jay Smit (Jvice/Renaissance man) gifted me a “prototype” (the one pictured above)... fine tuned adjustable thread tension and robust... He opted for his brilliant and more ergonomic design (see photo of Jvice / Jbobbin)... Engineers always raise the bar ! Faruk Ekich (Damaseal/automatic bobbin) never ceases to amaze !
  3. All sorts of interesting stuff to be found from daze gone bye 👋

    Tube Flies

    I like them for Stripers... Bluefish, NOT so much... Hooks held in place by a pliable junction tube perform well as a keel... if/when they dislodge during the fight and ride up the tippet, they become an inconvenient target... Google: Dual Tube Phlyz
  5. Jay's hardwood work station base is the most innovative I've seen and the best I've had the pleasure to use... The stem can be secured on the left rail for lap tying or on the front leading edge for a height adjustable table top application... BRILLIANT !
  6. Ausgezeichnet...! Kinetic Sculptures... Synergy... Think Stradivarius...
  7. Which model....? Be sure to go to Faruk's "Ultimate Bobbin" web site to become familiar with usage tips... the spool must pay out / retrieve in the proper direction and... after approximately 20" of payout, the spool must be unseated to reset the take-up spring... second nature with a bit of practice and can be done with one hand... I really enjoy my Ekich gear...!
  8. Improvise... Do what you can with what you have...
  9. Plenty of room with the Norvise Fine Jaws... spins with nice accesss... just sayin'...
  10. Well then, THANK YOU, Betty... I think...
  11. Wrapped n' Welded Flat Wing Insinuendo... Pheatherz n' Phur by Mother Nature, DamaSeal Vise by Faruk Ekich, on a Partridge Patriot Stinger Barbless 3/0, and Bug-Bond seals the deal...
  12. Thank's for YOUR service, Capt Bob... NEVER forget...
  13. Thank you... re: Phlyz... The pheaterz, phur, n' phlash do all the heavy lifting... I'm just the motivated intermediary material coordinator and camera operator... re: DamaSeal Vise... Faruk Ekich [Ottawa] obtained this Damascus steel from Mike Norris [Kentucky]... the concept, engineering, countless hours with file in hand at his cabin workshop on the Saguenay River, and painstaking attention to detail is daunting... this kinetic sculpture is a stunning treasure... while absolutely unique, there is a functional similarity to the Law and Jvise, with subtle refinements that take the DamaSeal to another level... There are many ugly vises out there, the DamaSeal is NOT one of them [nor the J]... asgoodasitgets and maybe even better... DamaSeal Jvise Rebel Triad Alliance Call it a reward / payback from me to me for all the years I spent in the $and Box... Once upon a time, a Military Transport pilot asked a beautiful princess, “Will you marry me?” The princess said, “No!” And the pilot lived happily ever after and flew jets all over the world and drove hot cars and banged skinny long-legged big-titted flight attendants and hunted and fished and went to topless bars and dated women half his age and drank whiskey, martinis and Captain Morgan and never heard bitching and never paid child support or alimony and kept his house and guns and ate cold spam and potato chips and beans and blew enormous farts and never got cheated on while he was at work and all his friends and family thought he was frickin cool as hell and he had tons of money in the bank and even left the toilet seat up… and collected some world class kinetic sculptures that just happen to hold hooks very well… The end…
  14. Ballyhoo and Pilchard Insinuendo... a workinprogress...
  15. Nice one Betty... The colour scheme, to my eye, is somewhat reminiscent of a tootie frootie [sp?] The local Albies would take your phly well into the backing... Variations of my Albino Broad Spectrum Stimulator have been rewarding... When larger prey are the soup d'jour, this GreenBack is another successful variant... The Pheatherz Phur n' Phlash do all the heavy lifting... My challenge is to arrange them as to insinuate and stimulate... The Phinned Phocus Group makes the phinal decision...
  16. Staring down the barrel... What could possibly go wrong...?! Standing by to stand by...
  17. W n' W P W B S S... on a 5/0 Partridge of Redditch Barbless Patriot Stinger hung on a Nor-vise Legacy w/ Fine Point Jawz, 3D Eyez under BugBond...
