Can you hang it from the ceiling?

Or do you "know a guy?"

Outstanding!

Kevin and Terri are amazing, with the gourmet lunch, flies and tips.

I've updated the driver/rider list today, but it seems one of the riders hasn't signed up yet.

I wonder who that could be?

From Michael Seery:
 
“An 8wt may be a bit large for the river. You really ought to consider a 6wt. You should be able to roll cast heavy flies, since, there is no real need to cast major distances.”

My camping plans:

In preparation for PINS, I'll be trying a few new things.

Don't forget to bring your food for Friday night and breakfast for Saturday morning, unless you really feel the need to make the trip to the town of San Marcos for breakfast.

I found my coffee pot, and dehydrated foods. 

My old style tent-cot will be what I plan to use this time, along with a comfortable folding chair.

I'll be on the way to the campsite as soon as I get my truck back from service Friday morning, and plan to be there only Friday night, hitting the road after fishing on Saturday.

I've always been told to have the fly match what the fish are eating, so I tied up a few of these.......

Puck where is this updated list you speak of. On Page 1 there is a list but it has people on it who have not signed up and it is missing people that have signed up.  I don't see Skip and Mary Kaye, Who is John C?

Mike G.

Skip and MK were the first on the list, and that should have been John P (VP). 

I'll move the list into the first window, and update.

Tying Chat / Chartreuse eyes
« on: July 31, 2015, 04:37:27 AM »
From Russell C.

I saw your video on swamp monster.  Chartreuse eyes are hard to find.  I make mine by spraying bead chain in the back yard.  I hang the beads from a coat hanger that is hanging on a tree limb.  I spray them with this Krylon (R) spray paint.  I get the Krylon (R) from Hobby Lobby (R) or Walmart (R).  The color for chartreuse is "Ivy Leaf Gloss".  I hang the beads from a coat hanger at one end with a twisty tie.  Then what I do is spray them.  It takes only 10 minutes to dry.  Once dried I go back and look to see if it needs respraying.  Again I wait 10 minutes, and if all looks good then I put the clear acrylic on it.  The clear acrylic coats the paint and the paint won't come off.  I will send you a picture of this.  After 10 minutes it will be dry as well.  The beads in the picture were originally black and I painted them a couple of times and they came out good.
