Who me?
I'm already hooked, I'm just not very good at it yet.   
But I have a few buds that don't care if they aren't good looking.

Actually Dutch, you're the one who got me hooked on using jigs.  Tying is the next step...

Thanks SK, I'll watch that real soon,  as in this afternoon!

Tying is enjoyable, even when I'm not good at it (yet).

I'm starting to get worried about Ed,  this long without any word.
Last time he was gone this long,  he had been hospitalized.

Tying jigs is relaxing for me.  And catching fish on those jigs is very rewarding.

Vise came in yesterday.  It is well built piece of equipment.  Over the weekend I should have some time to work on my fall jigs and get used to the rotary function of it.  I tied a couple last night just to try it out and I must say I'm impressed so far.

Who wants you to fly?
And where to?

I'm not fond of flying either.

Concur on Ed's  MIA status.

Anyone know where he lives?
Maybe his boat slip too?
Someone needs to check and be sure he is OK.
Last time he was mia, he was hospitalized up by Chicago.

Finally getting started...and already need more frames. My father, he passed away in 79, and I collected them over the years and I finally have a place to display them. I hope I can do them justice.

Didn't get back on the dove lease this year and been regretting it.  Haven't seen many at all around the house this year.
