  6. thanks mike. the fun part of the dragontails is blending different colors together and also different sizes such as 1/4 with 1/2 inch wide, 1/2 with 3/4. there is no need for wire shanks rich

  8. PS Don't be afraid of the dragon tails. rich sent me some samples to photo. DragonTails by Michael , on Flickr I later used them for tails of articulated Brammer style streamers. shankdragons1 by Michael Gerharz, on Flickr Is the 9 incher a fly or a lure. When wet it weighs a full 1/2 ounce. Cast that on your 3 WT!

    Big Bump Did Bob speak at the Early Show.? If he had any handouts, I would like to get a copy of them. Please. I have the handout he passed at a fly show in Schaumberg 15 years ago. It covered his new approach to river Smallmouth fly fishing between May and October. I remember 4 big points: 1 Smallmouth Bass are not trout. Adjust. 2. Fish the magic waters. 2-4 ft deep. 3. Fish downstream 90% of the time. 4. Make Short casts 30 ft or less. Plus many more details. I got Bob's permission to submit it to the Bulletin along with a preface he wrote. It didn't make the cut I guess. I will submit again.
  10. rich, Your right. Not being on the pro circuit like you, I missed that. I am still interested in hearing about the rods though. I know Craig uses the Sage Smallmouth all the time on Mille Lacs.
  11. I have the 7 weight mojo...........................love it!!!! Great for wading small to mid size rivers
  12. i thought i read somewhere that the rod length issue was no longer used in tournaments
  13. Background: Long ago I developed my stroke using rods 7.5 to 8 ft long. I am comfy with 9, but my body memory craves something shorter. So. The Sage 7/11s at $$$ have been followed by lower priced 7/11s - St Croix Mojos $150 and White River Heats $100. Does anyone have any experience with these two offerings?
  14. Please post pictures and video links so we can participate virtually if we cannot make it in person. Thanks in advance.

  16. Those who’ve been to past Blowouts know that we run a slideshow throughout the day with pictures of members catches. If you’d like your pictures to be part of the show, email me some of your favorite photos and I’ll include them. Send to; isalliance@sbcglobal.net
  17. All the best to your wife and you. Hope her health continues to improve.
  18. Planning and organizing events for the Chicago region is a very important job. But, it isn’t all that difficult and doesn’t take up a lot of time. If anyone could step up and help out, we’d really appreciate it. You’d get lots of help from the other officers, and a few other perks. Post here or contact Bart Durham if you’d like to try.
  19. I hope your wife is doing better and gets well soon.
  20. Hope your wife sees continued improvement with her health issues. She is surely in good hands.
  21. Sorry to hear about your wife. Glad there is some improvement. Thanks for all you've done over the years.
  22. Sorry to hear about your wife. Best of wishes.
  23. My best wishes to you and your wife. I hope everything keeps improving.
  24. Sorry to hear about your wife, glad that it wasn’t more serious. Thank you so much for being there for us. You’ve done a terrific job!
  25. Earlier
  26. I will be a Bass Pro Shop this Tuesday nd lookimg for  a good quality fishing waders. What do most fishermen recomend?  The Simd Freestone or Hogdman H5?

  27. As I brought up at the last officers meeting my future participation as the Chicago Region Coordinator could be compromosd in the future. Well it has come to pass. I had to rush my wife to the emergency room last Wednesday night. Today she was moved from the intensive care unit to the general patient area ( good news ). While some of the more social activities are almost self organizing and not a problem fom me to handle, someone will have to step up and handle the more active events.Fishing outings, clean ups, sign postings etc. they are going to be beyond my ability for the foreseeable future.
