Re: Got my new magazine today.....

The best was when Bill Gaines, the first publisher of MAD died, the staff put a large picture of Alfred E. Newman in the NY Times with a tear on his cheek. Mad is still the most-read magazine in my office waiting room, with Drake coming a close second.

Re: Fly Swap

Got in on this thread late, basic lesson is:Don't Mess With Drakians Now, another question: what is appropriate for three kayakers who put down a really nice brown today I had been watching and waiting for a long time? Can't believe they would want to go down a small creek and mess up fishermen's da...

Re: A succubus is what?

Here in Buffalo we're having the annual Italian Heritage Festival now, you can actually smell the food from the backyard, plus tens of thousands of people, parking hassles and Joe Piscopo. Too hot for carp fishing.

Re: What did you do while the Drake was down?

Fished for carp while Drake was down, somehow that really sounds appropriate. Also am trying to tie a pie fly, don't think it's fair to use foam.

Re: TWISTER!!

Re: FAOL rod building equip. Needed?

Can add to Glista, I made a dryer for varnish using a 4 rpm motor and 75 watt lightbulbs for low heat. Nothing fancy, woulf rather spend money on better fixings for rod.

Re: Product placement. Nemo start 'yer bitchin'...

I've bought several copies other than my subscription copy and have had one stolen from my office waiting room. MAD magazine doesn't even get stolen.
