  1. Poopdeck's old Laptop bag is a great idea for travel. Its perfect! I have one that is used for nothing. Wife always wants to toss it out. Now I have a use for it. Thanks! Poopdeck.
  2. Another vote is for the Griffin Odyssey Spider cam. Its vise is a great choice for the price. You can also look at eBay for a used one. Just watch out for the cheap knock offs.
  3. Nice. I see what your doing. Using his eyes to tie the small ones you cant see anymore. Joking, I wish I had the chance to learn this years ago.
  4. You can glue two different colors of 1mm sheets together from the Dollar Tree. Makes for a great look. The Dollar store has a lot of good tying material. From nail polish to flash. Christmas tinsel in silver and gold might still be out.
  5. Just wash the stuff off. Then apply some light oil. Probably needs it anyway.
  6. Nice! Going to try this. The eyes might be tricky. Never made them that big before.
  7. I don't think anything printed in this book is anything new or has not been printed before. I'm not saying its not a great book. That's what it is. A book to read. I have, Like many of you, Many books that just sit on a shelf. If I was to buy just one book years ago. I would have bought this one. But there is nothing new in it. Just a different technique. And I'm good with what I do, May not be the best way. But, It gets the same results.
  8. Maybe look at getting a cam lever jaw vs the screw type jaws.
  9. I have not tried this. But I was thinking of using a split shot or super glue a bullet cone shape sinker at the eye.
  10. I dont have any $1,000 rod and reel set ups. My stuff is to use and fish with, Not to look at. But, Its nice stuff. I feel if i store them straight it should be fine. The extra rods I keep in there for someone that comes over or kids that feel like fishing are fine? I am still skeptical on doing this. I can crack the door and window open for a cross breeze. I do miss my garage and space up north I will tell you that! But this is the only logical space I can use and keep all my stuff in one place. As with the golf clubs coming apart. That glue is not permanent. Some glues you can heat up with a heat gun to soften and remove. Now I not a rod builder. But is that not an epoxy. Once it hardens its done. All the crap thats in the shed seems fine. There is no exploded cans of spray paint or some type of melted gue on the floor. Appreciate all the input. Most of my neighbors and friends are golfers. So asking them is like asking my wife.
  11. Yea, kind of thought it was not a good idea. But I was hoping. Thanks guys.
  12. A different topic that I cant find an answer to. Where does everyone store their rods at. For people who live in a 55+ community in Florida. We have car ports with a shed. There are no garages or basements. In the summer it gets hot. And so does my shed. I would say it gets around 100+ degrees inside sometimes. Right now I have been keeping my good stuff under a bed. Its ok, Just a hassle getting in and out. And I keep everything else in the shed. Not my fly tying stuff. Old rods, Bass rods, kids rods, extra rods, tackle boxes and stuff we all have. I would like to attach everything neatly to the wall instead of leaning them in the corner, or under a bed. Now will the heat matter? The rods in there now seen fine. But just leery of my good rods. They were not all that expensive to say they are. But still. I am just dealing with heat, No sun light at all.
  13. Swamp Fly, I will be in Tampa Bay. All inshore. Hoping to land some snook. My rod and reel should be fine, An 8# graphite willow and cane. Had some big fighting bass on that thing. Also just got a paperback copy of Lefty's Fly Fishing in Salt Waters on Amazon. Thanks for that, Read some of the preview and should help me out.
