  1. Yeah it was, until yesterday... lol The first fish with the pot belly is 32lbs while the second is 33.5lbs roughly.
  2. Decided to start up carp fishing again for a change and landed this 24lb a few weeks ago. I blanked my other two trips but the river is really low so they might be hanging out somewhere else, however, this isn't a snaggy spot so fishing the bottom is pretty easy.

    pc vs mac

    This does not mean Macs cannot get a virus. Because PC's dominate the market, especially in business, it doesn't make sense if you are creating malware to target a tiny fraction of the market. However, Mac users as well as Linux users can still get them.
  4. My tablet is Android 5 and site works fine under chrome. Not sure about my phone which is 6 i think. Desktop still same as in spring, but Mikechells workshop post i can navigate as intended. No other multiple page post works that ive tried.
  5. I guess it depends on what you are making. I avoided it for a long time and broke down and tried the UV kit on Amazon, the RiverRuns 2 pack. Now its a 3 pack. It works great for my bass and panfish fly needs. Have no complaints.
  6. During Pa's shutdown we were essential but split into two teams working 4 days at home doing nothing, then 4 on site. This allowed one team to potentially quarantine and still function. Since June we've all (just over 100 of us) have been onsite. We have temp checks when we get to work, have to wear face coverings, have sanitizer all over the place, can only sit one to a table in cafeteria, and are just keeping spread out as best as possible. Our client devices that ship in are also quarantined for 3 days before we deal with them. People who have traveled for vacations to areas with a higher rate than we have in our area are not allowed back for 2 weeks. I'm there now about 50+ hours a week since we are dealing with devices associated with various Covid vaccine trials, on top of our usual tech support stuff. I feel safe.
  7. Apalachicola River has them. Believe me, I have a nice Euro Carp setup and had to drive 3.5 hours to fish when I lived in Florida. Ugh. Grass carp are more common but a bit harder to catch.
  8. Those are pretty cool. Where do you get the satin cord from? Joanns? I make the same fly but use rubber bands for the body.
  9. Was cruising ebay and ran into a few of them posted. One was the RF-80. Never heard of them and did some research but did not find much. Anyone have any experience with them?

    Fly rods

    I decided to put my reel on the old fiberglass fenwick 8wt on Saturday and leave my Lefty Kreh Pro Series 2 rod home. I honestly preferred the older rod. Had to slow things down a bit casting wise but was way more accurate with the old rod. Even caught a smallmouth on the morirsh mouse along the shoreline.

    SpaceX launch

    i caught it right before i went golfing. Really cool coverage and that rocket landing on the ship was pretty sweet. Have to take a look at those space suits in more detail eventually. They look way different. Assume they aren't NASA suits.

    I have a Fenwick FF 908 that's over 40 at least and it fishes fine when I use it.
  13. Those are some pretty good lists. Here's a few more that are good that kinda get bypassed a lot. I tried posting links to trailers but got an error.. You can find that stuff on your own Memphis Belle Tuskegee Airmen (The HBO movie) Fatherland (Murder mystery, Germany won WW2 in Europe and is opening up to the West in the 60's) Mister Roberts Das Boot
  14. Yeah, its just the foam on top. I am not a fan of sandwiching the foam between the shank as it gets messy with glue and the foam never matches up right. Its easier to glue and cut the foam as one and then tie it in.. You don't even need the dubbing, really. I've caught bass with the thread showing on the shank against the white foam.
  15. Since this weekend usually has some blocks of war movies on TV what are some of your favorites? Do you like classic ones, modern ones? I used to like watching Turner Classic Movies's lineup of war films when I had cable. Overall, I would pick Stalag-17 as being my favorite war movie, and one of my favorite films as well. Downfall is another great movie, easy to follow even though its subtitled. If you haven't seen it its really worth the watch.
