Bob Pop's Hollow Flye in Electric Chicken dress. In the water it swims great and it looks like a kid's toy.

Nice one Betty...

The colour scheme, to my eye, is somewhat reminiscent of a tootie frootie [sp?]

The local Albies would take your phly well into the backing...


Variations of my Albino Broad Spectrum Stimulator have been rewarding...




When larger prey are the soup d'jour, this GreenBack is another successful variant...




The Pheatherz Phur n' Phlash do all the heavy lifting...

My challenge is to arrange them as to insinuate and stimulate...

The Phinned Phocus Group makes the phinal decision...

I thought the vise was Ekich. I would love to have one. The workmanship and materials are second to none. But the misses said no way when she saw the price. I could not convince her that is exactly what credit cards are for.


I do use his bobbin holder. Expensive?, yep, but quality tools are worth it. I want to get a few more to have my common threads loaded and ready to go.

Thank you...

re: Phlyz... The pheaterz, phur, n' phlash do all the heavy lifting... I'm just the motivated intermediary material coordinator and camera operator...

re: DamaSeal Vise... Faruk Ekich [Ottawa] obtained this Damascus steel from Mike Norris [Kentucky]... the concept, engineering, countless hours with file in hand at his cabin workshop on the Saguenay River, and painstaking attention to detail is daunting... this kinetic sculpture is a stunning treasure... while absolutely unique, there is a functional similarity to the Law and Jvise, with subtle refinements that take the DamaSeal to another level... There are many ugly vises out there, the DamaSeal is NOT one of them [nor the J]... asgoodasitgets and maybe even better...





Rebel Triad Alliance



Call it a reward / payback from me to me for all the years I spent in the $and Box...




Once upon a time, a Military Transport pilot asked a beautiful princess, “Will you

marry me?”


The princess said, “No!” And the pilot lived happily ever after and

flew jets all over the world and drove hot cars and banged skinny

long-legged big-titted flight attendants and hunted and fished and went

to topless bars and dated women half his age and drank whiskey,

martinis and Captain Morgan and never heard bitching and never paid

child support or alimony and kept his house and guns and ate cold spam

and potato chips and beans and blew enormous farts and never got

cheated on while he was at work and all his friends and family thought

he was frickin cool as hell and he had tons of money in the bank and

even left the toilet seat up…

and collected some world class kinetic sculptures that just

happen to hold hooks very well…


The end…

Damn.. I should have looked at my senior trip (in 1971) a bit differently... Maybe there was something poetic about being in places where your toilet was a 55 gallon metal drum, cut in half, with a bit of diesel fuel in it that some unfortunate soul had to burn every few days... You should have heard everyone on the plane cheering when we left that place - all those years ago...


My generation never came back to any parades or well wishes at all... We actually snuck back in-country (ditching our uniforms at the first opportunity) and kept silent mostly about the whole affair... When I ended up in Miami only three days later in the middle of August, 1971... I thought the climate was absolutely what I was used to (except for no bunkers, sandbags or wire..). It did take a while though, not to react to sudden noises (and I was only a pencil pusher, getting shot at only a few times....). To this day, though, I've never belonged to any veteran's groups at all - not ever.


And so it goes - Vonnegut

Wrapped n' Welded Flat Wing Insinuendo... Pheatherz n' Phur by Mother Nature, DamaSeal Vise by Faruk Ekich, on a Partridge Patriot Stinger Barbless 3/0, and Bug-Bond seals the deal...
