Tying Chat / "Alcohol burner?" I was asked.....
« on: August 29, 2012, 04:56:07 AM »
Why have one on your fly tying table?
1.   You don’t have to hold it lit like you do a lighter, so you won’t burn your fingers keeping a flame.
2.   It is pretty stable.
3.   There is absolutly no smell as it burns.
4.   For making bent legs and burnt mayfly wings it can be invaluble
5.   Also can be used in the production of shrimp eyes.

Some tips on how to use it:
1.   By denatured alcohol from a hardware store.  The flame will be cleaner without all the water that is in rubbing alcohol
2.   Don’t light it until you have multiple pieces of work to do.  No need to put all that heat out until you are ready
3.   Only keep it about half full.  Even with the lid on, the alcohol will evaporate out.

I keep one on my desk, and if I think of more I’ll post up.

As soon as I'm sure, I'll sign up.  (90% probable right now)

I will have an extra kayak that I can loan,

This trip is a go!

If you get a chance, talk to the folks that made the 10 mile downstream float last year.

It took me 4 hours to get those guys to leave that first mile!

We have a volunteer to lead this trip.


The person that volunteered to lead this trip now has a work conflict.

Do we have another volunteer?

Due to lack of response I propose that we cancel this trip, for this year.

September is coming!

Damon's Seven Lakes / 2012-08-11 report
« on: August 13, 2012, 09:23:36 AM »
Took Lilly fishing with me on saturday.  The only lake that I could get a topwater bite, on a yellow spider, on was Martin.

We fished for about 3 hours, and caught 4 mid-sized bass, and a dozen bluegill that went over 1/2 a pound each.

Russel was having the same kind of luck, but was using a PGPP.

No pictures, this time.

I'm going to try to make this one - its been too many years since I did a PINS trip.  I have a 4X4 and will be driving.

Nilo and I are already trying to get stuff together for this one!

I tried Green's Lake on Friday, the water was very off-color.  NO fish, but plenty of bait.
