  1. The wife bought the Touring model with all the bells and whistles and I've gotten to like some of them. Ordered a hitch for it and had kid put it on. Hooked up boat for first time and pulled it to the lake. Swung around and got lined up...backed up two feet and dinger went off and car jerked to a stop. Stepped on brake, put it in neutral, back in reverse, two feet and bang go the brakes. Well maybe I can put it in neutral and roll back the ramp. Nope. Brakes again. Well, had to get out the manual and go through the section on towing and find out how to put the reverse braking camera off and get boat. in Otherwise it pulled my bare bones aluminum 16' with the 9.9hp with no problem. Towing on it is only 1500#s but doubt I get to that level and wouldn't worry even if I did. The Wilderness model that I wanted her to get but didn't have one she liked has 3500# towing and can't find a difference in them except ground clearance. Pulling the boat back I did find it does not like the lane centering and auto steering but was okay with cruise control so overall except for looking ridiculous on the ramp ( fortunately not holding anyone up ) I'd say I'm happy with the tow rig setup.
  2. Okay, I've given up for now finding the spot I safely stored a hundred jig heads I bought for another swap. I've got jig hooks and beads and will go that route and get them on their way shortly. If we only have need for 5 I'll take the crappie style jigs I've got ready to go and do a trout one to go with it. Unlike Chasing_Tails I won't label them so as not to confuse the fish.
  3. Great looking flies Heff. Not a lot of takers in this swap but some fine flies to distribute.
  4. I understand that Woodenlegs. It's "an articulate guy" not "a articulate guy". If you were articulate you'd know that. 🤣😂😉
  5. Got mine and they fill a corner of the box for me. I hope I get stone a few trout this summer somewhere.
  6. Chasing tails...you don't mind if I use your jigs for trout if I get to the White River like planned later this year? I'll look forward to them.
  7. Sounds good. I've got a couple of bass sized triple jointed and some smaller trout sized nymphs with a following kick tail. Plan to fish them myself. Nick
  8. I have some great flies from Psycho and the Tramp. Just send me yours Heff and I will distribute them. I will have a large and a small version ready to go. Wish someone else would jump in. Plenty of time to do a half dozen ties for us. Nick
  9. Well, I really want to send some crappie style jigs with poured heads and I know I have dozens of various sizes of jig around here but damned if I can find where I hid them. Been tearing the fish room apart to find them and if I can't in next few days I'll tie some beadhead jigs. I will get them to you and yes, divide up what you get. I never miss a chance to get a Woodenlegs fly for my box, even if I never get a chance to use them.
  10. Wick is a pretty tough dude...at least in his movie series.
  11. Playing with dolls at your age?
  12. Hoping your swap goes better than mine Darrell. I'll get in. Are you looking for beaded jig hooks or crappie type jigs? I'm good with either.
  13. Mike, I'd love to come across country and fish with you but I could guess your response. I understand you hate everybody with no prejudice in there. Actually, you are a lot like the nephew, also a Marine (my brother reminds me there are no ex-Marines) now inactive who feels being thanked for his service is an insult. He simply nods and moves on (familiar?) and says the large majority of servicemen agree with him. I find that hard to believe. Maybe it is because my blood brother was in Nam and came back on a stretcher and went through several operations to be fairly normal that I feel like I should thank those who fought or typed requisitions or worked in motor pools for us to be free in this country.
