  1. I'm wanting to find an old megaphone so Rick can yell "action" and "cut" while Sandy's fishing since it's a fisherman's director chair. Susie has already nixed the idea of me getting the same setup.
  2. Glad to hear you and the Mrs. and the other driver are good to go!
  3. All those years working on the railroad made it easier to handle the extreme cold when fishing . My best 2 fishing buddies died ,one in 1997 and he other in 1999 and found then that most of the other boys didn't want to go when the temps dropped. Have found now that I don't enjoy it as much and rarely go when they're calling for really cold temps. Think coldest opening day we fished was maybe 1979 with minus 10 degrees and snow at Montauk. Fished Taney with the wind chill at minus 40 with Mr. Fuji( kids thought he looked like the wrestler). You could still use bait below the dam and he consta
  4. Loved the "oh my', "oh my", oh my" when Duane first got a look at the fish.
  5. Was a lot different in those days as he worked pretty much every off season. Met Mike Shannon at the grand opening of Dugal's Big Star grocery store one year. Even the star players picked up extra income in those days. Worst part were the years he left mid-February and we didn't go where he was playing for the summer for whatever reason. One year he was with the Charleston, West Virginia team in the AAA international League. They were trying a new idea out-playing some games in Havana, Cuba for a trial run. One of the first nights there, they heard a loud explosion followed by a big cloud of s
  6. Guess I could fill a page with memories from my Dad being a professional baseball player. Never was famous as the knuckleball he threw according to catchers like Tim McCarver and Bob Uecker was very difficult to corral. We always came home to Desloge after spending the summer in some bigger cities when he was in the majors. Met Stan Musial in 1962 when Dad was a relief pitcher for the original Colt 45's. Batted off Hank Aaron in the father-son game in Milwaukee in 1964. Came up to bat in the first inning with 2 outs and smoked one down the line for a sliding double. Older brother not wanting t
  7. She has a electric blanket that plugs in the car and leaves the motor running if it's too cold. Windchill at the motel in Lebanon Saturday said 13 degrees so I even waited for the temperature to warm a little before I fished. That stocking cap fooled me the last time we all fished at Bennett. That plus you had ventured downstream. The last time we switched rods so I could retie tippet and fly, she decided she really like that little rod of mine that you were looking at that day. She broke out that little St. Croix 6 foot 3 wt. Saturday and gave them heck in the outlet. Might be a while before
  8. Wife, Susie and I made a quick trip to Bennett to fish Friday and Saturday this week. Must be getting older as the 42 degrees showing on our car seemed a lot colder especially with that wind. Caught decent numbers of fish in zones 1 and 2 with several from 15-18". Started to the outlet in zone 2 Friday just to see how busy it was and would've been fishable except for the one guy standing midstream casting up into the outlet. Probably took up 30' of water with his back cast . Evidently, Laker had the same scenario at Taneycomo in the outlets. Moved on and found fish down to the "Whistle Bridge

    What's Cooking?

    Now if you could get the aroma added to the cooking on the "wok", it would really be awesome.
  10. Didn't mean any harm as I always look to see what you've posted on the Forum. Having a wife who survived cancer twice and losing my Dad at an early age, I'm hoping and praying for you and your family. Had a railroad buddy who had a lot of experiences and told him he could sell a lot of books retelling his life. He said it would have to be listed as fiction. Keep fighting and keep the posts coming.
  11. Sounds like the makings of a reality show or at least a memoir "The Life and Times of Oneshot"!
  12. Happy Birthday Sandy! We spend several days celebrating Susie's birthday each year fishing. ( And mine also).
  13. My 91 year old uncle passed away from Covid a couple weeks ago. Tough ,old guy who survived better than 2 years in a Korean POW camp and went on to live a pretty good life. Was sad for all that he survived that "hell" only to die of the coronavirus.
  14. Susie and I were using the gray scud in the outlet and did stay and fish the second day at BSSP. Away from the outlet it was mostly fur bugs in "egg " or some shade of salmon. Wrench, think I might have talked to you along the bank of the High Bank hole. It's tough wading that stretch for me also with the bad right hip. The last time we fished that section, I realized I needed to put some studs on my old pair of Simms or get out the Frankenstein "tractors" I got on closeout. They are heavier than the Simms, but those aluminum bars do a great job on the slick rocks. Had a great time seeing and
