  1. I have often tied without a bobbin holder on "survival trips" with found feathers and fur and sock yarn. Then, caught fish with them. It's a worthwhile endeavor.
  2. Wow, Nice water, nice flies and nice fish. You are very fortunate. Thank you for showing us your stuff.
  3. We don't use any cleats because we use a lot of rubber boats here. It's against the law to use felt because of fear of spreading invasive species. T^hose are the only two drawbacks to living in Alaska that I can think of. ( Mike Chell). We have calks we can slip over regular waders when we are wading.
  4. A friend of mine says only people that are too lazy to look for a tool put them away after each job.
  5. I personally would not cross the street to see him.
  6. I figured out it's the contrast of colors in flies like these that make me like them so much
  7. I like the spruce moth muddler. Lots of applications up here.
  8. The highlight was the 112 pound halibut I caught. It was on conventional gear. The weather was not suitable for fly fishing. I wish the best health for everybody.
  9. Getting old is not for sissies. Glad you are not one.
  10. I'd give a few bucks for just a handful of Squatches fur.
  11. Getting older is not for wimps. Thanks all for the well wishes, and well wishes for all.
  12. Glad to hear you got that one whipped.
  13. I love this one especially for some reason.
  14. Well said, I agree with you.
  15. Oh how you exaggerate Mike. It's really only 5 months, six tops. I say, if you like it and get satisfaction from it, do it. I don't, so I don't.
  16. Where we live, people will mow their' lawns at 2:00 in the morning because they can and it's a short summer. I myself don't have a lawn and I wouldn't. Why take care of a lawn when there's fishing to be done? Why tend a garden, same answer? Do work, sleep, go fishing...repeat.
  17. Sorry to hear that.
