In Topic: What are you working on?

I just got control of my diabetes in the past 5 years. Visit the tretna specialist every 3 months.  Sounds like you had laser treatment which I've had 3 times on my right eye ( good eye ) in the past year.  Has stabilized now, for the time being.  I feel for you.  When I have treatment I have to stay inside out of sun or bright lights for 3 days until the drug wears off or you will sunburn from the inside out.  I feel for you.  Take care



In Topic: Love my local taxidermist

A really good friend of mine was a taxidermist, now retired.  I would go in on Saturdays and shoot the shit with him for a few hours and walk out with all sorts of his scraps and cuttoffs.  Great source of materials


In Topic: Anyone fly fish the Caribbean?

I did a cruise similar to that a few years back.  Pretty decent but the thing I soon realized was that our boat or iteninary didn't stop for very long in each port.  Some snorkelling and shopping was about all I could get in.

Started tying at 6.  At that time I used an ultralight spinning rod.  By the time I was 8 I was able to cast a proper fly rod to varying degrees.  Just found my first fly rod (Wright & Mcgill) and reel in one of dads closets.
