  1. I like that dark cork. The light colored cork could be just highlight rings.
  2. Except for the cold, the ice and the crowded conditions ... it looks like a fun few days fishing. Pretty fish.
  3. What is this "winter" you speak of? We get a couple of cold snaps (frost on the windshield) through the short days ... but, fortunately, no real winter.
  4. Mmmmmmm. Other than cork that's too light, that's a pretty one!
  5. Red is definitely not among my favorite colors. However, it looks very good on that rod.
  6. Actually, it IS a Schrödinger thing ... as in Schrödinger's cat. There are ALWAYS fish where you're casting and there are NEVER fish where you're casting, until you do or don't catch fish there !!!
  7. I didn't have the volume up, so I probably missed all the hootin' and hollerin'. Well, I'm assuming you're reacting like I would with a big un like that on the line.
  8. http://www.flyanglersonline.com/ Click on "Beginning Tying" ... page down when you get to this page and follow the lessons. Each one is more involved and builds on previous ones. Can't be beat, as far as I can tell.
  9. Although this might be why you don't see small animals/birds in your area, it's likely not the reason for population declines. As much as I love my cats, I'm the first to admit that they're the reason many small animals are on the decline. From nature.com: "We estimate that free-ranging domestic cats kill 1.3–4.0 billion birds and 6.3–22.3 billion mammals annually, and that un-owned cats cause the majority of this mortality." Ground dwelling birds like Bobwhite are easy prey.
  10. Pretty birds. Pretty lookin' and pretty good to eat.
  11. Just north of Houston ... more or less part of the Houston metroplex.
  12. I was lucky to be with people when I needed my bypass surgery. I might not be next time. The only app I need is ... 911. Hopefully, I won't even need that one.
