    Another Hook-in-Finger story

    My 15 year old was tying a jug to some driftwood and was going to release it in the current of a notched wing dike. When he let the line out and dropped the baited hook, the hook caught and the weight of the boat in the current pulled the hook through his finger (actually... I had to finish the barb through myself). My crappy rapala needle nose cutters couldn't cut the shank, so we had a 20 minute boat ride back to my truck to get some good wire cutters. I now have really good cutters in my boat box.
  3. Killing the cats on these fiberglass bank poles. Easiest and most productive rod I've ever set up. Not your traditional (rod building tutorial, but man do these things work). Thought I'd share how I make them (the way I attach them is a bit unique). I do a quick release line on mine that I think is easier to hang and take off while in the current of a big river. Anyway..... hope someone enjoys this. I set a bunch out tonight and will be getting up early to check'em. Got some trotlines out as well. Found a nice 40 foot hole below a wing dike tonight! Can't wait til morning! Here's the video: https://youtu.be/hJyS1NhDS0A
  4. I wanted a fishing rod rack for my topper, but I didn't want to drill any holes in it. I looked for products in stores and on-line and didn't find a thing. So..... I came up with this idea. Welding is required, but maybe this will give someone an idea on design and use wood or PVC. Anyway...... The best part about this rack, is the fact that it is strong enough to use as a utility rack. I hang groceries, hunting gear, clothes, lantern, etc... on it. Love this thing. It's my 4th one that I built over the years (my friends wanted one in theirs too). Check it out! https://youtu.be/32MS_l25OHU

    Bread Box Fly Tying Bench -homemade

    Thought I'd share the best/most useful, fly tying bench I ever made. Watch those garage sales for these old boxes. I've made 3 so far, and I plan to buy every one that I can find. Hope you enjoy this as much as I do. https://youtu.be/kN1GkscmOCY

    Bread Box Fly Tying Bench - Homemade

    This is simply a portable work station. I'll use this mainly on coffee tables, in motels, and camping situations. I put my materials in a travel binder I bought from cabelas and sometimes a briefcase is handy. There's not a desk big enough to hold all my materials!

    Bread Box Fly Tying Bench - Homemade

    Here's an idea I came up with after inheriting my Grandma's old wooden bread box. It looked like a miniature fly tying desk, so I decided to make it into one. It was so easy to make, that I decided to go on Craigslist and find another one real cheap. Anyone can do this...... I made a video on how to make one, and put it on you tube. If you like it, send the link to your fly tying friends. The store-bought ones are CRAZY EXPENSIVE... this one I think is classier, and of course easy on the pocket book.
