  1. Going to look immense when it's done. You lost more weight Steve?

    My new shop

    I switched to the chrome tab access on the phone and not the Google shortcut on home screen
  3. If you can still find it Benecchi. Really good. I've found the veevus stuff isn't too bad and utc at a push.

    My new shop

    I appear to have fixed my page issue with changing my browser. Looks like a good project Mike.

    Still unable to get any threads past page one so I'll never see the finished article but it looks like the start of something you can really get your teeth into.
  6. Yes it won't jump to unread page for me either.
  7. Follow any threads past page one. I'm on a phone using chrome. I've tried using desktop display as well as mobile and I can read things in page one, then it just won't let me move to next page.
  8. If due date was after Oct I think this will get me back to the vice
  9. Haha, we've had so many door mats of various claimed abilities. I'll have to wait until 'lockdown' is lifted and then I can source a local shop or two.
  10. If i replace my current mower with a mulcher it will be a 100% mulching machine and not a 3:1 or 4:1. My wife is bound to say the dogs paddling in bits so I might try and see if a dealer is local and will loan one for a 24hr trial. If it was upto me the lawn would be gone and it would be a huge pond with bridges and paths over it
  11. I'm not sure if these are a big thing over in US but anyone if they use one, does the lawn have a lot of small grass pieces left which pets collect and drag inside?
  12. That just looks absolutely brilliant. The lack of water doesn't distract in anyway from the 'fish tank'. I reckon that's my favourite one
  13. Did try this with a set of flies. Wasn't as sensible with colour choice as you and by the time I came to use them I couldn't remember which thread meant weighted and unweighted. 🙄
  14. I believe its some batches. Possibly the dye. I've a pack of a purple shade that's just all in the bin. Never had red or black do it. Had some in grey that was hit and miss
  15. Hi folks. I have two trophy tamers. An extra heavy and a medium heavy. Does any one know were these all made in China as only the extra heavy has made in china printed next to the south bend label.
  16. I think an old member here, kirk dietrich had a pattern called squirrely. I use it in winged streamers and in wake flies that I want to swing across the surface. Make sure you wax your thread well and tie down butt's firmly. A tiny drop of glue can help too. Don't be mistaken thinking more and more wraps is always better.
  17. Awesome Steve. Especially the weight loss you've managed too.
  18. I like that. Great idea. A lot of racket handles are hollow too so you could add foam so it floats if dropped.
  19. Depending on size of fish you intend to target a #5 switch is getting on for a heavy #7/#8 equivalent single hander. I use a 3-4 micro spey that Steve (midwest custom fly rods and mod on here) made me up. That speys lovely with a short head #7 single line and overhead with a #5. I fish small rivers for atlantic salmon and find this rod perfect for small tube flies and coneheads but not too big as a traditional spey rod. Makes playing the fish a blast too.
  20. The masks work by restricting spread from the wearer. If everyone wore one and then was meticulous with hand hygiene it would cut down cases a lot. But you can't take it off then touch your worktop and dog and door handle etc. You need to wash hands, remove and wash at over 60 deg or bin it and then wash hands again. Then take a bleach solution and wipe everything you've touched from the car to the house. If you wipe surfaces with bleach or 70% alcohol they should appear wet for 4mins to know you've killed anything on there

    Coronavirus?

    And I hope it remains like that Steve although the time to the first 100k cases was something like a month, next 100k 15 days and 3rd 100k 4 days. The US could be a disaster if people can freely mix and it's not reigned in.

    Coronavirus?

    Agree Steve. Although even the most optimistic estimates at the 'undiagnosed well' has the death rate a little closer to 3%. So in a population of millions its not 'lots' but its enough

    Coronavirus?

    In Europe it is really turning nasty and it isn't just the direct covid deaths but the people dying who can't get a bed due them all being full and having a queue of people waiting for them. I kinda understand what trump is trying with the cure not being worse than the disease line but with no national health system in the US we (medical folk) are really worried for you guys and the potential over the next 3months in the US
  24. I have a brass hair stacker that has a very narrow lumen but find the standard size from doctor slick far easier as it has less static and is just simpler to control the hair. Remember with the small flies you can always add extra so just start with a really small pinch.
