  1. Idea from http://www.chuckinwood.com/Blog/index/blog/. Michael
  2. This would be one of the simpler ways to do this. Michael
  3. Flats, It looks like a flat board with dowels to hold the rods. Am I correct? Michael
  4. TedderX, If I may add my two cents. I have had great response asking other on the forum if they are up for a swap or willing to sell some feathers that they have from their hunting trips. I have had wonderful response everyone I have traded with. Good luck. Michael
  5. Pat is going to be proud of you for starting this swap. I too picked up one while on vaca. last week. That and a bunch of other tying supplies that I really wanted ... didn't need. Michael
  6. Good morning Mike, I'm ready, just need an address. Michael
  7. MIkechell, If you enjoyed McManus you might like MacDougall, He writes just like back woods Maine people speak. It can be a challenge to read some of it, but this is where I learned to fish. I have met many people that are just like his characters in his books. My first book was a B-day gift that is signed by him before he passed. A good friend knew him well. I can still find some of his books on the used book sights. Michael
  8. Couple of authors I enjoy; Arthur MacDougall and Patrick F. McManus Michael
  9. I also have met some of the mentioned. Especially at the fly shows. One that I remember well was Jack Gartside. Truly enjoyed the conversation and the lesson in tying. He was a fantastic teacher. However the one I have the fondest memories of was Gadabout Gaddis. I think I was about 6 and stood by his side and fished in Auburn Maine.... well me and about 200 other kids that day. Thank you Dad for the introduction and fishing. Michael

    There is not enough ways to say how sorry I am for you loss. May God be there for you as he answers our prayers. Michael
  11. SWEET find for a tying desk. Makes me want to build one. Michael
  12. Coming from the woodworking side, The desk is *$%#'n amazing. It looks somewhat like cherry burl, but it I'm not sure I'm correct What did you use? Michael
  13. Good morning Fin-ite, I would suggest doing the same and I have done just that quite a few times. I have also checked with some chefs that I know. Every one I have talked with has said it would be the same either fresh water or salt water. Because of my fishing opportunities, I have made this many times, using pan fish and white perch, and have had great success. i.e. no one has fallen ill from eating it. Although that being said, it usually doesn't say around much more than an hour. Michael
  14. Ceviche Ingredients 1 pound white fish fillets, cut into 1/2-inch cubes 1 teaspoon grapefruit zest 1 teaspoon lime zest 1/2 cup freshly squeezed grapefruit juice 1/3 cup freshly squeezed lime juice 1 medium tomato, seeded and diced 1 small red onion, finely diced 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced 1 jalapeno, seeded and minced 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro leaves 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano leaves 1/4 teaspoons kosher salt 1 teaspoon sugar 1/2 teaspoon toasted and ground cumin Directions Put the fish, grapefruit zest, lime zest, grapefruit juice, and lime juice into a large resealable bag. Put the bag into a leak-proof container and refrigerate over night, turning 2 to 3 times, during this time, to evenly distribute the marinade. Drain the marinade and put the fish into a large serving bowl. Add the tomato, onion, olive oil, garlic, jalapeno, cilantro, oregano, salt, sugar, cumin, and stir gently to combine. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes prior to serving. This would be my choice. Michael
  15. Good afternoon Mike, I might be in depending on when you would have a due date. Michael
  16. I just did a week's worth of cardio after walking into a spider web ...
  17. Bob finally decided to tie the knot with his long-time girlfriend. One evening, after the honeymoon, he was tying some flies for fun. His new wife was standing there at the bench watching him. After a long period of silence she finally spoke, "Honey, I've just been thinking, now that we are married, maybe it's time you quit spending all your time out here in the shop. You probably should just consider getting rid of all this fly tying stuff and that stupid rusty old Jeep. Bob got a horrified look on his face. She said, "Darling, what's wrong?" He replied, "For a minute there you were starting to sound just like my ex-wife." "EX WIFE!" she screamed, "YOU NEVER TOLD ME YOU WERE MARRIED BEFORE!" Bob replied: "I wasn't!" Michael
  18. Happened Tuesday afternoon, Don't you hate when the bite just starts to get hot, but you have to leave because your partners wife gave him a strict curfew. We did manage to get some nice fat crappie for a fish fry and we were only 15 mins late. Not too bat. Michael
  19. Don't you hate it when you are standing in front of an ATM and you know you have $19.50 in you checking account..... Michael
  20. And that is how you shop victoriously!!! Michael
