    Menominee River

    I have sent my comments. I know we don't do Politics here However, due diligence on water discharges and profits at the prices of resources will be come the norm from where I am sitting. The Fox this spring had much effluent dumped into it out of necessity (raw sewage) This was all weather related. When it comes to profit all bets are off to the damage to resources we all enjoy. Thanks Gordon for the HEADS UP.

    2017 Blowout Snippet

    Kudos to All that worked so hard to make this event a success! As someone who used to be "involved" I can appreciate all the time and effort put into the blowout to make this the premier fundraising event for the ISA. It was filled with laughs and camaraderie. I also would like to say that Tim Horton was one of the most amiable speakers ,you guys have had in awhile, and the tribute to Bob Rung brought back so many memories of willow plantings of which he was so heavily involved. Thanks again Everyone!, It was great seeing you all again! Kevin Summers AKA ' The Fox River Fishin Musician "

    Topwaters in the winter

    Norm, I remembered you saying that.
  5. Yes, Bob Was a true champion of our Illinois Rivers and streams. Had the privilege of planting willows with him and the conversation about the Fox and his thoughts on conservation were insightful to say the least. Planting and digging flew by due to his great knowledge and wisdom which he so freely shared. We were blessed to have him avail himself to our cause..

    New kayak

    Thanks Mark, looking for stability and easy loading.Thought a bilge or Sponge would be a necessity in the Ultimate. I get down to Oswego on occasion but stay around Batavia for the most part unless I get a hankering for out a state fishing. Did you buy the ultimate locally? I do appreciate the feedback.

    New kayak

    Mark , If you could would you expand your thoughts on the ultimate 12 and it's faults as a river craft. I've been looking hard at tis craft as an all around craft but spend 50 percent of my time on moving water. Thanks.

    I am of the Norm Minus school of wading boot care. Boots come off and are put on the garage floor ..sometimes they dry ,sometimes they don't before their next dipping.I have a pair of Orvis boots got a great deal on them they are now discontinued. If i get two years on a pair of wader its a miracle, boots average a couple of years as well. Hope everyone had a good year on the water!

    The Eric Bait 2.0

    Scott for a few years I have been using a small piece of fuel line (for weed wacker or chainsaw) slipped over the tip completes a O for you to use a snap. I had previously used a small o ring but finding them the right size can be tough. Much easier cutting a piece of tubing and slipping it on.
