    I was going fly fishing until my wife suggested it, now I can't tell who is outsmarting who!

    Being "one with nature" requires a knowledge of what animals are living nearby and a weapon of sufficient magnitude to give you at minimum an equal chance of survival. No one has an invisible aura that animals can detect and sense your good intentions.

    I objected to several things in this video, as follows:

    (A) You don't have to use that glue he's got. Scotch Tape will work and prolly save money.

    (B) You don't have to use those dangerous Pike Hooks he's got.
    A large Safety Pin will work just as well, and you don't have to crush the barb down which could cause personal inury, or at least, some kind of Psychological Trauma.

    (C) It wouldn't hurt to make a video with some old Mississippi Blues for background music. He uses Lawrence Welk Music, and Lawrence Welk is about 4 years out of date.

    (D) He didn't even know the name for the Thread-Holder Thing-a-ma-Jibber.

    PERFECT right down to the off kilter picture in the background.

    All that aside, now you know why I don't have any SBS's posted up.

    A good one Mojo,it looks like Hank Peterson changed his name.

    I've never been Off My Trolley from Tying Cement,yet however over the years I've come in contact as I imagine many others here have,with some very Toxic & Volatile Substances at home & at Work.
