Hi Richard! I hope you can get some pictures of your new fishing rod. Sounds like a beauty. The wooden net..I have one that has been used one to many times the netting is out. It was hand made the wood on it's beautiful. It's good to see you back posting again.

Thank you Rindy.

I figure I have another week on it and I will be finish. I don't have a camera but I do have a few friends that do and I am quite sure they would take a picture of it for me and who know, maybe I will be even holding it myself. cool.gif

As far as you Wooden Landing Net, do you have a Fly Fishing Shop near you? The should be able to replace the netting for you at very little cost.

Well I can't go too long without my Fishing Buddies. You guys and gals may forget what fish even look like. tongue.gif

I am finally working on my New Rod. It is a rod that I have had over 20 years and dreamed of modifying it for all this time and I now almost have it finished.

It is a 10' Telescopic Graphite Rod. (2 pieces)
It now has #50 braided dacron for the Rod's Tip.
8" Cork Handle with Reverse Well Grip. (Not finished yet but all is left is the sanding.
I have some size D (.45) Level Silk Fly Line.
I have varieties of 20 Soft Hackle Flies I tied myself.
I am using a Shoulder Bag for my gear because I gave my Fly Fishing Vest to my Nephew. This was planned ahead of time.
I have my Red Tin Mucilin for treating my Silk Fly Line.
A good friend of mine tells me he has an ole wooden landing net for me.
And now all I have to do is wait for the Fall Trout Fishing. And I am getting excited to get out. dribble.gif

I have been to my Local Fly Shop and told them what I am doing and they are very excited about how it turns out. I even have one member of their crew starting to design his own outfit. thumbsup.gif

Well I hope to catch you on the water with a nice big trout on the end of you line.

The specs sound really interesting and technical. Question: What size batteries does it take? biggrin.gif

Oh, that one easy. It is a combination of Solar, Wind, Water and Man Powered. tongue.gif

The only problem is getting the right combination. wink.gif

Well I tried my new rod out this weekend for about a half an hour and was pleasantly suprised when I caught 2 Largemouth Bass on it. They weren't very big, one of them was 10" and the other was 11", but they did give me a fight. Both of them were caught on a Black Woolly Bugger just at Sunset. biggrin.gif

Talk about a smile on my face. wink.gif

Val,

Instead of having your Hubby jealous, why not taking him fishing, unless he prefers to be out alone like I do.

And Rindy,

I hope your local Fly Shop has something for you. I am always glad to be of service.

See you all on the River. thumbs_up.gif

Hey Richard and Maisky, found a web site ya'll should check out. It is about fly fishing in Scotland.

http://www.thehighlanderway.com/index.html

A quote from the site, "Fly fishing is not a life or death matter. It is far more important than that."

Richard,
We haven't been able to go fishing in along time. All of our Labs were so old that no one wanted to watch them while we were gone. Our fishing hole is an overnight trip. We still have one Lab, that it is day to day with, so it will be awhile before we get to go. He doesn't like to go alone. Actually if he did he wouldn't have to worry about getting outfished. LOL

Hey Carolina Scotsman,

"Fly fishing is not a life or death matter. It is far more important than that." That is a very true statement. I also think of it as the "Quiet Sport". There is so much to behold and be aware of it just brings out the joy in me. And thanks for the tip of the Site, I will have to check that one out.

Val Pal,

Sorry to hear about you Labs. If your Labs were anything like my old Lab, she just loved the water. That would be kind of messy when your trying to fish though. I had my Lab for 14 years and after she died I said I would never have another dog. Well, Never say Never. Nine years after my Lab I got a Jack Russell and now I have had her for 9 years and she is still going strong. I don't think you can stop them because they are so full of energy.

Now for my Fishing Report today. My new rod worked wonderfully for me. It was even better than I had hoped for with the Silk Line. I was out for only an hour but it took every thing I had. I was soaked from head to toe and it didn't rain and I did not fall in. (LOL) It was just down right HOT!!! I don't think that my Neoprene Waders help much in that matter either. The river was low, I never saw the first rise and I never saw the first Trout. Plenty of Chubs but no Trout.

Sad news on the fishing front. I got this e-mail message from Janeymae:

We close on the cabin somewhere around 10/15. Anyone want to help pack and dry my tears? Just thought I'd let you all know.
