Re: Unlimited Almost a TR thread

I agree that destruction is self expression for young labs, but Ged the god is 18 months old and has his preferred medium. If his medium is absent he whines, barks, then goes to sleep. After fishing I bought a bag of popcorn, put it unopened on the passenger seat, and walked into a fly shop for 15 m...

Re: Unlimited Almost a TR thread

I arrived at the parking area mid-morning. I let the dog free while I was dressing because I was alone and he wanted to wander. He had whined nearly the entire 100 mile drive up river. After I put on my waders and set my gear I closed him in the car because of ‘landowner rules’. Technical dry fly fi...

Re: A Confession

I'm shopping for a new not so expensive spinning rod for throwing hardware to replace a rod I broke after foul hooking a carp and being stupid. I have an old Fenwick HMG 7' 4wt and I love that rod. So, I was looking at what options Fenwick has in HMG spinning rods. Reviews is rarely helpful, but som...

Re: Science says: Go ahead and take that fish photo

After looking at it Keepemwet, I should start an organization named "Bonkemorletemgo". Any willing sponsors? Anyone want to be an ambassador? I'm far too technologically inept to make a website, given that I can't remember how to post pics on teh suk. Any volunteers?

Re: Science says: Go ahead and take that fish photo

This will inevitably be below a 4th grade level: I've known about this study for a while. IDFG actually released this study just after researchers in Wisco published that gear makes no difference, but time out of water does. I'll pull that study out of my archives on Monday. I don't remember what fi...

If you would rather spoon than jerk, I recommend a Thomas Bouyant.

Re: Bad Reads

I'm going to re-read the Earthsea trilogy - Ursula Leguin. I named my god after the beast. Rereading a book is often an enlightening experience. It will remind me why he's such an ass. His name is Ged.

Re: Bad Reads

I finished it I read while in the bath (where I am immune to wife and 1-year old and its hot enough to draw a sweat. Sweat is key thought. I had some insights, but I am not ready. I'll wait 10 years and try again.
