  1. The ice finally got thick enough to deploy the hard fish house. Had a beautiful sunset the first day. The rainbows are pretty in this lake and some of them get big. I'm hunting for a thirty incher this year.I normally fish wit one baited pole and one without bait. I catch most of my big ones on the pole with no bait. They've seen it all before. My first double of the trip. I caught 47 fish on this day. Other friends were in the "escape pod" close by. They've got three 18 - 20 inch rainbows outside. One of my 18 inchers. Depending on which fins are missing, you can tell in what years these trout have been caught in a test net. Dave with a good'n. This one was 22 1/4 inches. It got up to eighty degrees in the house, had to shed some clothes. This is an average fish for this lake. My notes say we've let go about 175 of these so far this winter.
  2. A while back I posted pictures of my fly tying room in total disarray. Fearing that I may smeared my rep. by showing the room, here I submit new pictures of the room after having cleaned it up some. It took me a full three days to clean it up and it did cut into my fishing time but a think it was worth it. We've done threads like this before but please feel free to post pictures of your fly tying room.

    No I don't, I would call the DOT (Department of Transportation.)
  4. Yep, just been filling knife orders like crazy and then went on an extended ice fishing trip. Now I'm working like crazy again and cleaning up my fly tying room, leaving for another trip on the 2nd. Really trying for a thirty inch rainbow through the ice. Thanks for thinking of me
  5. I can send you some dark beaver ASAP. No problem. Let me know. PM me your address.
  6. They are some of what separates us from all the rest of the feral animals out there. Literally. 😄
  7. Good for him, he should get a raise.
  8. Hi Landon, I think you are doing a fine job and learning along the way. One thing is for sure, no matter what you write, someone will find something to dispute it. Don't get discouraged. It just seems to be the sport of the internet to knit-pick everything.

    Merry Christmas

  9. Hunker down guys. Hoping for a warm, uneventful few days for you all. See you on the other side. At least the wind will keep the power lines from coming down.
  10. @Jaydub Wow, That's really good, thanks
  11. @Moshup and @chugbug27 Very nice stuff. Nice use of the moose hock, if you need more.... every moose has four of them you know. Very nice ties everyone.
  12. He "bit the snow" funny. Congrats.
  13. I think probably the "God" tips are the best tips.😁 The tip from Ronn Lucas is good too. I have used that method and have been most successful with it.

    She sounds like the best kitty ever. We have one now that my brother left me, and he's quite a dude. At first he was quite stand-offish but now he's realizing that everything he needs, including affection is either going to come from Angel or Me. But he lets you know when you can give him affection.
  15. I'm not an expert on these things but, I think it looks very good.
  16. That's a nice one. Congrats.
