Hah! Thanks Bill. Yeah, there can be no mistake about the nymphing. Glad I was able to document it.

This place could use some fresh puppy pics. Bet you could help with that?

The rod is worth what someone else is willing to pay for it.
Good rod, but much better it be used than put away.
I had someone show me a rod they had gotten in a garage sale after seeing a bamboo rod on tv which was supposed to be worth a lot of money. I told them while I am certainly no expert, it was doubtful that it was worth much, a postwar souvenir from Japan, the box was a little nicer than the rod. Probably see fake Leonards (real ones can be not so good) or whatever as people who are more interested in what a rod may be worth than its quality get suckered in, like the old fake Stradivarius scams of old.

It tells me that I have PM's but where they currently reside is a daily mystery. I'll try the wife's laptop over the weekend.

Hey the picture thingy is working again though!

What happens then?
Stand around an hour or so waiting for the meal to end. When she flies off into the hills to roost, trudge on following the telemetry signal until you find her. Toss out lure with a big hunk of meat attached. Hope she is still hungry enough or trained well enough to land on it.

But not before ‘testing the ice’ then ending up cold and wet. That’s the first step.

GS has this little flick cast that he uses to drop the fly about three inches from the wood.
