    Corn Bread

    Anyone ever heard of Spoon-Bread? I was introduced to it at Historic Colonial Williamsburg Virginia, 20 plus years ago. It's a moist, custard-like cornbread that you can scoop with a spoon. I don't recall which tavern or what the meal was, but I'll never forget the spoon-bread. Virginia Spoon-Bread: https://www.theseasonedmom.com/spoon-bread/ Awendaw Spoon-Bread: https://ansonmills.com/recipes/461 The dish is believed to be of Native American origin and is commonly called called “Awendaw” in Charleston S.C. after the Awendaw Indians. Berea Kentucky holds a Spoon-Bread festival every year. https://www.spoonbreadfestival.com/

  10. Masks may be of help but they mainly keep you from touching your mouth and nose. They are also a reminder to others to keep their 6 ft distance. The most common way to get the virus is to touch infected surfaces and then transfer them to your face. Keep safe and if you travel out don’t touch your Mouth, Nose, or Eyes.
  11. I always like what you come up with Denduke. The ones with the squirmy worm legs should make a lot of attention getting commotion.
  12. Thanks Mad Duck, and knotjoe. The foam is white and takes a permanent marker well. The triangle shape causes it to dive and It's quick to tie as mentioned.
  13. The hooks aren't SS but are 3407DT (Mustad Duratin) size 4. The flies float with foam out of the water about 50% , and suprisingly they float horizontally. I used thick craft foam which measures slightly less than 1/4 inch thick or .230.
  14. Thanks for posting this enjoyable interview SilverCreek. Gary is on my top 10 list of fly fishing authors.
  15. PD that,s a beauty, bet it has a nice wobble. Should get the bass and snakeheads fired up. What size hooks are you using?
  16. Hi Swamp Fly, I just checked on my laptop (logged in) and phone (not logged in) and both are showing the picture. About you friend, I would stay clear of that area. Mark the other shark must have been huge. looks like two bites and down the hatch.
