Happy Birthday, Jim!!
Prayers sent from Michigan. Hoping for a successful surgery and a speedy recovery.
I carry an aluminum bicycling water bottle. It is small enough to fit in the back of my vest, but big enough to carry water for about a half a day (about 16 oz.). It has plastic stopper with a loop...
I'll be there!!! As usual, I will be at the Keystone campground, unless it is full, then I will be at Canoe Harbor.
Last year, during our local town festival, I met a fly tier selling his wares by the river. I talked to him for about 20 mins., and told him I was a fly fisher and tier myself. He invited me to...
Don't forget about Brad, sitting back in the shadows and supervising.
Thanks, Deb. Loved it all!!!

Big, warm welcome from Michigan!!! Ditto on all that has been said about FAOL!!!
P.S. Don't believe everything anyone from Ohio says either.
Just got back from the show. Many great booths, and super seminars/demonstrations!! Even a couple of our own were there:

I saw a similar event at last years MI Fish-in, when some small rainbows were trying to grab damsels off low hanging bush branches.
All the water is hard here in Michigan. Even some of the rivers are nothing but ice. Only 'sposed to be 6* tomorrow!! BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

Welcome back! And welcome to Michigan! Hope you have a chance to check out the MI Fish-in. Check the Fish-in forum for dates.
Got any questions or need a fishing partner, don't be shy, send...
Welcome back, Joe!! Missed viewing all your posts about lo-tech fishing.
Right on, rainbowchaser!! When I decided to tie my own flies, a search on google brought me to this sight. (As they say, ".......is history." HEHE) The tying series here is EXCELLENT!!!!
A huge "Hoo-ray" to all of these extraordinary kids!!!
Very nice!! Gonna hang them on the tree?
Interesting. Although I was born and raised in southeast Michigan, it showed me as Grand Rapids, Mi., Spokane and Seattle, WA. I think my Canadian background (grandmother and many other relatives...
