Just a little something I did for someone we all know that just had a quad bypass surgery last week. Think this will help make him look forward to getting back on his feet asap wink.png

Really a great thing to do! Hope there is enough blue to make him happy. He does like blue so much, are we sure he didnt serve in the Air Force with me in the late 60s?

Tom I thought about dipping it in blue paint for him once it was done, probably STILL wouldn't be enough blue for him though laugh.png

What a thoughtful thing to do. I'm sure the sunfish and bass are going to take a beating as soon as he is mobile.

Samwell Tarly arrived yesterday (he goes by the name "Tim", here), on his horse (disguised as a delivery truck) and handed LongClaw to me.  It's been raining a lot since then, so I haven't had a chance to take it out and see it and swing it in the sun.

What I have seen, is that it's prettier in person than the pictures.  I am beside myself with anticipation of getting it out and playing with it !!!

 

I have one Okuma reel I got on sale when Gander Mountain went under.  I put line on it tonight, so ... now I just have to wait for doctor's okay ...
