  1. I use the same setup for stripping cracklebacks and woolies. Generally use a tapered leader with a 5 or 6X tippet for nymph fishing. I stick with mono for dry fly but generally go to fluro for wet flies. Of course, a lot depends on water clarity and how spooky the fish are on a given day.
  2. For all you camera buffs out there, are there that much differences between the iphone 11, 12, and 12PRO to justify the extra costs? I'm fixing to move up from my current iphone 6 and can't really see that there is that much advantage to get a 12 or 12pro to justify the higher cost versus the 11. Getting 5G, an A14 chip, oled display versus the iphone 11 isn't that big a deal for me so it kind of boils down to camera differences and as I am just an amateur photographer I'm not convinced that that is even worth the extra money. Would appreciate any thoughts. One final thing-due to
  3. Thanks Ham. Yea I pretty much expected the shipping costs to be kind of high which was why I priced them that high. If anyone wants to pick them up in person I'd take $30. I live in Mexico but go to Columbia pretty frequently so could meet up there sometime.
  4. It's time to get rid of some of the tons of fishing stuff I've accumulated over the years. First up is a lot of unopened packages of plastic worms, crawdads and lizards. There are 20 packages total. Brands include Gary Yamamoto, Berkley Gulp and Berkley power bait, Zoom, Seaside, Gene Larew, and Riverside. Photos show all in one photo and closeup shots. Asking $45 shipped. PM if interested. Check or M.O. ok. I don't use Paypal
  5. When I go through Lebanon on my way to Arkansas I sometimes stop at the newspaper office (they print it) and pick up a copy. Its on the corner of Commercial and Hiway 5.
  6. It was probably "Trout Talk". It's still published by the local newspaper and can be picked up at several places for free. You can also subscribe by mail. It's published monthly during the regular season. Typically ran around 8 to 10 pages. Used to be an interesting read but has kind of gone downhill (in my opinion) in recent years.
  7. I used to have a jon boat that I kept in a slip at a clay pit lake. One day I decided if one of those would clean the dried pond scum off of it. Took it right off. Had to use several pads but they worked beautifully. Been using it on cork rod handles for years. Wonder how they would do on dirty fly lines? Anybody ever try them?
  8. I'm starting to miss my 1983 Charger 747 XLT. I bought it slightly used in 1986 and used it every year up till last year when I decided to get rid of it. Getting old and with a lot of lower back problems I was getting a little leery trying to launch it and getting it back on the trailer not to mention falling out of it. It had a 115hp Merc on it and I had very few problems problems with it over the years. Here's a couple of pictures of it taken only a couple years before I sold it.
  9. I heard the Russians were behind the attack and were wanting ten million dollars to get their data back.
  10. My guess is that it will push it very fast but probably not in the direction you want to go.
  11. If the crappie are on the banks (and they should be next week) it will still be crowded. I can almost guarantee you it will be muddy. Rain is forecast for the next week or so. See southforkresort.org for up to date info on the lake conditions.
  12. I'd go used, especially given the current bad economy. I imagine there are, and will be, a lot of good buys. In 1986 I bought a 3 year old Charger bass boat and got it for 40% less than it sold for new. I used it every year for 34 years and had very little problems with it. It had the old 115 Mercury on it. New boats are like new cars-they depreciate like crazy in the first year or two.
