    Blue Sky Boats

    Yes, if I had a some lake front property I would consider one of those. Other than that they kind of seem useless to me.

    1/19/19: 6:15AM - Looks to be a little much out there. For safety concern for my fellow ISA brothers, I am cancelling breakfast on this first 3rd. Saturday of 2019. You are, however, allowed to stay at home and make your own coffee and breakfast. Any interest in rescheduling this 3rd. Saturday breakfast to next weeks 4th Saturday and renaming it... NW Region 3rd, Saturday +7 = 4th. Saturday Rescheduled Breakfast Meet? I hate snow. 😥

    Blue Sky Boats

    These new boats look interesting and stable to stand for fly/spin fishing but probably not real nimble for stream fishing. https://blueskyboatworks.com
  9. First NW region breakfast in a while I'm not working/on call and yet we have snowmagedon bearing down on us, Maybe next month weather and work permitting
  10. C'mon, people...don't make me eat with Terry all by myself!

    Fishing log

    Here’s a photo of a fishing report sheet that I use to use a lot I don’t know if anybody keeps logs. It would Be interesting to see how people record their trips. I was doing a lot of that back about 15 years ago I really regret that I didn’t stay on it. I tried to make the sheets as easy to fill out as possible. A lot of stuff just needs to be checked off or circled.

    Remember the bulkhead is just a platform. Look at his freestyle videos to get some ideas.

    If you only need 4" inches you do not have to go to the tubes. His Predator flies -Deceiver, Bulkhead, or Jig Bulkhead might be the ticket. But the simple answer first,"Use fewer tubes." 1st of 3 pt Predator series starts here
  21. I can likely do Fri. 12-4

    Fox water level.

    I believe Eric mentioned at one time the Chain of Lakes releases water this time of year, but as you mentioned far northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin did get a good bit of rain this year.

    Well Done Mike ! Do you have any idea how long it took to create that Beast? Since the amount of time I have to fish a fly is inversely proportional to the amount of time it takes for me to tie said fly, I would probably lose that one before I even got on the water. I would like to tie one in a 4" specimen, can it be done easily and still keep it's shape?

    Swim Bait+Chatterbait=?

    Yeah it looks pretty slick. Is it any better than the others? Depends who you talk to... Lures got expensive when they were successfully marketed to be superior to other lures and people were willing to pay for said superiority (perceived or real).. Do the fish care? I'm not sure yet... I do know nothing I've found suspends quite like the LC pointers.
