It promoted all of the latest and greatest the fly fishing industry had to offer. It also showcased some of the best New England area fly tyers.

Cleaning The Logs and Chinking Cracks.

Posted 06-19-2016 at 04:22 PM by Hardyreels

It's been almost 3 weeks since I hauled my pressure washer out to the cabin for a cleaning of the building. Things get dirty even though it's way off the road system. There is dirt and mildew because of the lake and rains so every 4 years I clean and maintain the exterior.

Things were going normal until the water pump on the pressure washer seized up, done, need new......... So I came home, ordered a new pump which arrived but is not the correct pump but that's another story huh?...
