  1. Here's a good one!

    Recently we had a post about Casting on the lawn..... wherein the poster told that he does his 'Practice' on the lawn and that the welded loop on his fly line came apart. The post was answered by well meaning members who made all sort of suggestions as to what may have been at the root of this welded loop becoming FUBAR. I thought the replies suggesting that it may be the type of grass he has on his lawn were especially amusing. I posted what I'm placing below on the thread. Naturally it went without ...

  5. The Big Spruce

I've told them the truth, that being that if that;s what you really want there are plenty of them available. They are called Lodges and for anywhere from 3500 to 6200 per week you can go to a wilderness surrounding, fish, and at days end put your feet up and relax while you reflect on the day. But the cabin on the lake? Not the spot if relaxing is what you have in mind. ...
