  1. How I create a catalog cover illustration

    You should see some of his paper mache and the scratchboard work he does. He might be the reason for all those C- grades I got in art class. That, plus I have no talent in that field of work. Awesome job as usual Al.
  2. Have enjoyed reading those stories and I've read some of them previously. Slow day for news in Desloge.
  3. White river 3/19

    You are correct sir! The Mrs. has a ton of stuff and uses it very well. Just can't get her to go as much when the temps are below 40 degrees.

    Looks like you'll be buying more fly fishing gear for the ladies now!
  5. Reports

    Fished opening day with a group of friends and had a lot of fun. From talking to other fishermen, Roaring had the best water as far as clarity and flow. We caught some nice stockers and the group caught several recently stocked lunkers along with several brown trout over #3. If you fish the trout parks you know what I mean about recently stocked lunkers. The kind of fish that will hit pretty much anything thrown at them. Not necessarily a challenge but fun on light tackle.
  6. Hey Dutch, most of the jigs I cast are on size 6-10 hooks so not sure how well I could hold them with a set of forceps. Some paints don't set up in the eye of the hook and some do every time. Not sure if some of the powder might be older or what. Thanks for the idea-will give a shot on the bigger hooks next time. If you can call a size 6 bigger.
  7. Bought a Lee production pot in the late 70's and am now on my 3rd model.Originally used a 2 part epoxy mix that was time consuming and was all painting the jigs by hand. Have used the powder paint for as long as it has been on the market. I now only cast 2-300 jig heads a year,so I use a candle and a pair of hemostats to heat the lead head .Normally I only dip them into the powder one time and then stick them on a piece of flat styrofoam . I do get paint in the eyes and use a old hook or straight pin to clean it out before I heat them up. The smaller jigs 1/64-1/100 don't take much heat . Too long under the candle flame and the lead melts off.
  8. Rod Building Hobby

    Bought a couple Winston "WT" blanks several years ago at a really good price. Buddy building the rod and I were spining the rod and struggling using the methods mentioned above. He finally called the boys at Winston and they said just line the blank up as straight as you can and mark them.

  13. Gotta Love Skulls

    Found an old steer skull with horns intact years ago while taking an empty train out to the Pea Ridge iron ore mine to load. Found some rope and made a hood ornament for the front of one of the lead motors. Thing made the trip back and forth for several trips to Jefferson Texas before it was removed. Kind of had the big "Caddy" look.
  14. What's Cooking?

    Ness, had the exact thing happen in California last summer. Staying at a motel waiting to get ready for my niece's wedding and spoke with a couple at the pool. They had a foreign dialect with their English and I'm sure my "Ozarks" English threw them off. They were from Switzerland, where my paternal great grandparents came from and the lady had lived in the same town. When I pronounced my last name, she said "No, it's pronounced this way". 64 years old and pronounced it wrong all these years.
  15. Possible Strike 3.

    Prayers from our family for you JD. We had another scare with my wife Susie this summer and she is also a two time cancer survivor.
