    Secrets are no fun!

    I was gonna keep this a secret, but what fun is that? So here ya go......The 9mm Wrench The fuzzy head, the Pearl tinsel rib, and the antron fibers hanging back are the key elements (along with the size - 9mm) Hope you enjoy it as much as I have. 😊

    Not bad for a cell phone pic, hu? This MotoZ has a beast camera, I'm always shocked at how well the pics turn out.

    Nope, a #16 is 11-12mm We're not measuring the hook here, we're measuring the completed fly.
  4. Your bracket that you have mounted to the shift arm is confusing me. The linkage rod should go directly to the shift arm, and there should be a guide plate at the jet pump..... I think. The configurations are many and often rather hokey.

    What's Cooking?

    Yep, I knew it. You aren't allowed to share a plate of fried fish and hush puppies with another gal either......even if your Sig-O doesn't eat fish. Now you can gift them RAW FISH..... that's ok.... but bygod you don't cook it and deliver it to them while it's still warm unless you wanna sleep in the recliner chair for 3 nights. Been there/Done that. 😏

    At Bennett the 16's and 18's only get looked at. The 20's get slurped in more times than not.

    Whites

    I know that they can still be found roaming the shallow flats more than 2 miles from what I consider "deep water" at 42° If shad are present then the Whites and LM are probably there also. Catching them on a fierce bite is a chance deal though.....Hit it just right and you can load up on them. Always seems to be on those nasty days when you'd rather just stay home and sit by the fireplace.😊

    Whites

    I ran out for a quick check this afternoon, up here around the access, just to see if they were patrolling the usual spots. Caught 7-8 short green bass right away but not a single White. I'll get a little more serious about it after all my obligations are filled. Glad you found a mess. πŸ‘

    Bennett C&R Monday?

    That clay does have a certain smell. When I go up there and get a whiff of it, it always brings back memories.

    Bennett C&R Monday?

    I'm thinking that I wanna go Monday. I'd kinda like to have Sugarbritches whip up a batch of chili, take the Coleman stove to warm it up, and just make a day of it. Any of you other non-working bums gonna be there?

    Grandpas ol' hand me down.

    Yay! I want one. I feel the need to label my wife and these children daily. When I was just a little 3/16 wrench I got ahold of dad's label maker and put REFRIGERATOR on the fridge, PHONE on the phone, OVEN....SINK....and so on. I got yelled at. πŸ˜₯ Nobody but me thought it was cool. Actually I got yelled at twice....cuz mom broke a nail getting the one off the toaster.

    Those aren't real bowfishers, they're just folks who IDENTIFY as bowfishers. I've decided to identify as a younger and more well hung version of myself, so I guess the first step is getting my birth certificate changed.

    Can you still buy those label makers and rolls of stuff ? I haven't seen one of those in ages.

    Thanks for Guinea pig'n that recipe. Now I need to spend some time in the woods so I can experience it. Can't wait! Haven't had squirrel pot pie since I was 11-12 years old.

    Bennett C&R Monday?

    The old days of Bennett are among my best memories. I learned short-line nymphing from Mike Alred who was a friend of Ed and Kay's at Spring View. Learned sight fishing from crankyass ol' Jack B. back when he was way more friendly and less of a prick. Learned dry fly techniques from an old dude with the last name of Kramer (can't recall his first name but he was originally from my home town). Back then, as a young kid, you just had to pester someone until they finally took a liking to you....then they'd share all kinds of good stuff with ya. 😎

    C’mon over to the Darkside

    Interesting how a thread about clicker counters turns into a 6 page long thread about lure retriever's. This is why you can't pass up reading EVERY thread on the entire forum in its entirety. If you don't your gonna miss something really good. πŸ™ƒ
  18. You hear about these accidents where a car/truck just "looses control" goes off the road and hits a tree or causes a head-on with another vehicle.... Who's to say if the airbag went off BEFORE or AFTER the impact? The dang airbag might have caused it.

  20. Seriously! The Tahoe I recently bought has an issue with the dash lights and dome over-ride. It can't be as simple as power/ground/switch/bulb.....Oh NO, because there's a "chassis control module" in the mix. Thanks GM for assuming that I'm too stupid to know when to turn the lights on and off, and when to lock the doors. Really appreciate that. 😑 A customer in a fairly new Ford didn't secure his hitch lock on his trailer when he left my shop with his boat. The trailer jumped off the hitch and when the safety chains DID THEIR JOB guess what happened? The jolt set off the stupid AIRBAGS ! Yeah....so be ready for that surprise when driving down the highway pulling a trailer. Just brilliant.

    Damnit, I was doing a fine job of staying out of this thread, but now there's a bowfishin problem in Honduras that requires my input. Our country needs to send a team of our biologist's over there to assist......for life. (or at least until retirement age)
  23. I don't crappie fish much, nor do I get very serious about it when I do. But there are alot of times when a jig just hanging there is the ONLY way to catch'em. Slip-bobbin is a solid technique that any crappie guy needs in his bag of tricks.

    There's not a post office within my 5 county area that I would trust with these. More precious than diamonds πŸ€— So you'll have to meet me on the stream bank and make me a sandwich.
