  1. Thanks Silver. that was great information.
  2. Thanks Silver, i know alot of duck hunters so this fall i will trade "breasting" birds for their cdc.
  3. Beautiful, a work of art. wish i had friends like that.
  4. I guess i gotta start hitting ducks with my truck, thanks Rick.
  5. Hey guys i know this may seem a bit noobish, but where on the fowl are cdc feathers? I have been plucking pheasants for the past week ( I hit a turkey and two Pheasants( one male one female) in two weeks) .
  6. it would be idiotic to argue the point of is bamboo better than glass or even carbon fiber. It's not about that for me. maybe I am nostalgic or even a bit foolhardy, but I think the way it feels in my hand connects me better to the water. i also own two newer rods and i seldom use them.
  7. I have two split canes, and I am presently working on restoring my third. I own two Horrick Ibbotsons both are from the early fifties ( label recognition) and I am working on a Vom Hoff a 15' five piece. Two tips, Two Mids, and a butt. ( from my reaseach, the VH is from the early 20s). I fish them and love their feel though they are old and considered to be antiques they do the job just fine. My plans for the Vom Hoff is to make two rods from it: a 7' and a 12'. for salmon. I think there's something that charges me extra when I land a fish on either.
  8. If he got mad at me for knocking his feathers over hes gonna shit hooks over this.....
  9. I called the vet and he said to "just push it through", you're good with that,right?
  10. Eide: You skill level is magnificent. I hope to someday to be able to tie as well as you.
  11. Barbs on. let the guy receiving them decide.
