Re: How Are You Combating Cabin Fever??

I mowed the lawn, cleaned the pool and picked lemons for a large pitcher of lemonade. Going fishing next week, hoping for a cold front. :)

Re: How often should I clean my line?

Re: Ottlite's/lamps.

Are you looking for fly box ripple foam? The UK guys get it on ebay.co.uk I think. You could search or ask on the UK sister site.
