  1. Nicely done! Congratulations!
  2. Interesting. Thanks for sharing that info.
  3. Very nice! I’ve talked to many rod builders about the same thing. They say that keeping it a hobby keeps it fun. Do you just repair string instruments or do you work on others too?
  4. Wow, that’s an interesting combo. Violins to poppers then back to violins again. I’m intrigued. Is violin making something you do on the side or is it your main gig?
  5. Thanks for sharing that , Eric.
  6. It may well be a winner, but don’t name it one until you catch a fish with it. Don’t want to jinx a winner. 🙂 After that first fish you can say with confidence that you caught it on Fisher’s Buoyant Winner.😁
  7. I’ll throw in my opinion, for what it’s worth. I fish both fly and spin gear. The fly you tied looks like it would work quite well on bass. With the rabbit strip it should have a tantalizing slow sink rate. I think adding weight to the fly would mess with it’s motion. Fifty-five feet wet isn’t too bad. If you want to get more distance without sacrificing line strength, adding an eighth ounce split shot about 12” above it for those longer casts should suffice. This would still let the fly retain some of it’s buoyant properties. I would say you have a winner there.
  8. Cool looking carp! What did he hook that one on?
  9. Colin, that looks like a good one too. Nicely tied.
