  1. I had robotic prostrate removal, while I can go back to a pond behind the house and do a little bass and bluegill bugging I really not supposed to do any straining. I feel good enough to and I’m goofy enough to but I’ll wait a couple more weeks. Mike.
  2. Dean, I’m with squatch I hope you heal up soon! I’m recovering from surgery myself going into week 4 feeling a little better everyday. Mike.
  3. If you go to anglers of the ausable or the mangled fly websites they the best recommendations for cleaning waders and boots. Rock snot has invaded the upper Manistee river here in Michigan and fishermen and women really need to take all precautions to stop or at least slow its spread. Mike.
  4. Nice smallie, and sounds like a good trip! Mike.
  5. DFoster, thanks for the update, I’m glad this story had a happy ending! Mike.
  6. Awesome Steve, wish I was able to be up there unfortunately I have a date Friday with a surgeon. I’m going to be hanging around home for at least a month. Keep the great reports and pics coming. Mike.
  7. Beautiful fish! To bad about the camera. Glad your having a good time! Mike.
  8. Chugbug27, very nice tie, I’m wondering did you use the orange silk as tying thread and tie in the body threads at the back of the hook? I’ve got to try a few these! Thanks, Mike,
  9. That is very cool looking, do shape the curvature to any shape you want once it’s off the needle? Mike.
  10. Your in my prayers Mark, hope you have a speedy recovery! Mike.
  11. Gene, I agree with DFoster, don’t give up just yet, with all of the the great therapies out there you may be happily surprised. I know from recent health issues I’m having and being a official senior citizen now that it’s easy to start just not doing stuff, but I’m not slowing down, every day is a gift use it. Mike.
  12. Glad to hear it, pun intended! As I sit here and the ringing gets louder, Dean, yes most of hearing issues are self inflicted as well. 30 years at GM and cutting wood with a chainsaw and yea I love classic rock loud! I will 65 in June, which is scary in itself oh and did I mention 11 years working at my local Ace hardware after retiring from GM with those stupid radios and ear phone. I guess I should be happy I can still kinda of hear anything. Oh well getting old is definitely not for the faint of heart! Mike.
  13. Glad to hear the news for you Steve, I told my wife today I need to make a appointment for a hearing specialist today, and that is a big step for me. Any kind help for my hearing would be great, and I’m taking Dfosters recommendations into consideration to be discussed with hearing specialist. Thanks, Mike.
