"Peace is that brief glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading".--Thomas Jefferson

 

There is no such thing as a blank day for a fisherman. It will be saved for him by the white-throated weasel, who watches his fishing from a hole in the wall under which is lying a fish that refused all flies; or by the excitment of identifying insects; or by the apple-bloosom in a nearby orchard; and no one would call that day a blank on which he has seen a king-fisher." -- Arthur Ransome Rod and Line, 1929

I would love to be able to tie frogs the messinger way. I have done a couple by stacking hair but I have failed miserabley with the Messinger Method. I love those frogs.

Sorry about your stroke Slinger.  Hope you're not too set back physically.  It sounds good to hear you're getting right back into fishing.  Send us a pic of that bass when you catch him.
