    Mark, I went Turkey Hunting/Fly fishing about a week ago. I'm sending my fly's tomorrow. I used the Turkey feathers from the birds (Turkey's) I shot. I'm kinda pleased with them. I'll call them the Turkey Vulture Fly....Ha! I'm not very creative.

    Thanks again Mark for all you do for us. You keep us pumped.

    Best Regards, Boser

    I love those old cartoons too, but they don't show them on TV anymore. I tried to show some to my daughter and all I can find are a few Tom and Jerry's. It's a shame......
