  1. I read an article yesterday that Woody Harrelson believes that 5G cell service is used to spread COVID19. He needs to step away from the Bong
  2. I think that the reason they are now recommending masks is the fact that not ALL people that are infected, are symptomatic or even get sick. For this reason, they are recommending using a mask in case YOU may be one of the ones that are carrying the CV19, but not symptomatic, so you dont unknowingly pass it along.
  3. I read in an article yesterday that spandex,which a lot of buffs are made of ,are not a good fabric to rely on. The article said that any material that stretches is a bad choice since, when the material stretches, the "pores" in the material expand.
  4. I read that the CDC is now recommending facemasks for Joe Citizen. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/cloth-face-cover.html

  6. My first batch of gurglers like that did not float well at all. They still catch fish,but I wasn't getting the topwater action I was expecting. After looking at the flies, I realized that I had compressed the foam too much,negating the buoyancy of the foam. On this batch, I made the segments so the foam had a little airspace giving the fly more buoyancy. They now float like corks and have a very nice action on the water.
  7. I use an ice chenille for the body. I tie in the tail material, then the chenille, then wrap the chenille up to just behind the eye, then tie it off. I start a wrap just forward of the bend of the hook and tie in the foam, then a set of legs a tie it off. I move up a little and tie in again. I bend the foam to where it covers the legs. I smush the foam down and around the hook and wrap it a couple of times, then tie in the smaller set of legs. Depending on the size of the hook and profile, I will tie off and make one more hump, tie off and tie on a hackle.Basically I tie in several different times and places. This keeps the segments straight and keeps the foam from rolling on the hook.
  8. This has been my project for the past week or so.
  9. I've been using a Hopper/Popper/Dropper on Bream, for years. I use that combo on trout as well. On Bream, I get about a 50/50% strike ratio on top and bottom. On Trout, the ratio is higher on the dropper than the top fly.
  10. You're gonna stand there, owning a fireworks stand, and tell me you don't have no whistling bungholes, NO TOILET PAPER, no spleen splitters, whisker biscuits, honkey lighters, hüsker düs, hüsker don'ts, cherry bombs, nipsy daisers, with or without the scooter stick...or one single whistling kitty chaser?

  13. I worked on a boat years ago and we tournament fished the Billfish circuit. We were fishing Million Dollar Month in the Cayman Islands. On our first day out, I had put out 4 out of the 5 lines we normally trolled. I picked up the 5th rod and clipped in the tether line as I was putting the rod in freespool to set the prop wash bait. I had no sooner clipped the tether line in when a small (150lb) Blue Marlin shot out from under the boat,grabbed the bait and took off running. It pulled the rod out of one of my hands,but I managed to hold on with the other. That little fish crossed every line we had out and made a real mess out of our spread. We did get things cleared and managed to tag the fish I do know of a mate that was fishing the Big Rock tournament in NC. He was taking a wrap on a fish as he wired it in. The loop slipped and lassoed his wrists together. The fish surged and pulled the guy overboard and no one ever saw him again. It was a very somber week after that happened.
