Moving to Wilmington, NC in January

Looking for fishing partners, a job, a boat, a new 9wt, maybe a guiding job??? If anyone in the area is looking for a fishing buddy, I will be doing a lot of exploring when I get there!

Cheers, TB

Re: My 4 Stroke Won't Start

Another thought:

Are you just idling the motor or are you running it closer to full throttle?
Are you trolling for long periods at slow speeds?

Carburated engines get gummed up quick when they...

Re: What have you been tying today?

Sometimes you just have to do what works.

Re: What have you been tying today?

I've been working a lot and fishing/tying very little, but managed to crank out some sparkle wing rs2's for when things thaw out a bit.
