    Thank you, John.
    I think it truly is Dave. I just like to fish and catch fish, so whatever works.:thumbsup:

    Blimey Preston, what a story! :( Very well told though :thumbsup:

    Thank you :)

    Great photo, I wish I had the split-cane rod my granddad gave me as a boy. My father 'borrowed' it, and not knowing how to cast with a cane rod, broke the top section. My grandfather, who had built many rods, managed to repair it, only for my father to do exactly the same thing again, but this time time he broke the middle section :(

    Fantastic pic my friend, what a beauty, and a great-looking Lambsfoot :) :thumbsup:

    LOL! :D When I was a kid, I just wanted to catch big fish, and fished whenever I could throughout the year. Sadly, I have not fished for years, but when I look back, it was not the fish that I missed so much, as the peace and quiet of the river-bank, and everything else that comes with fishing, including sitting in a boat with a six-pack :) :thumbsup:

    Thanks, Dave! Appreciate it very much, my friend. I think of you often and feel for you having to pack up and move. The longer you have been there, the harder it is.


    Thanks, Dwight! I am as excited as you about the new hints of Stag Barlows floating about!!:D


    All steel construction= perfect! Thanks very much for the compliments, sir!:thumbsup: I want to express my gratitude for your response to every post. Really makes everyone feel included and quite a feat, I might add, in this fast moving thread. I am not sure how you do it, but, thank you.:)



    I am confident it will be fantastic. Nothing to worry about, my friend.:)

    Oh my gosh Taylor, that looks delicious!! 2 really great knives, as well.:thumbsup: You're a lucky guy!

    Beautiful knife and the fly rod is a treasure, Preston!:cool:


    Sheets??:eek: Great knife and cool photo, Dave!


    @JohnDF Magnificent Oak tree, John. I can see why you are very proud of it!:thumbsup:


    @gunstockjack Really great photos you have put up the last few days, Barry! Thanks for sharing them here.:cool:

    Thanks Jack, fishing is so great, it has something for everyone. The fly shops around the Denver metro area have been giving classes for years. With the population exploding and so many people wanting to fish they have resorted to making it a big deal to catch carp on flies. The South Platte flows through a good portion of the metro area and there are groups being 'guided' along the river's banks casting for carp. I smile and remember the old story of how to fix carp...take a white pine board, put carp and spices/onion/butter/wine on board. Bake for twenty minutes or until done. Throw away the carp and eat the board.:eek::D:eek:

    I liken it to hunting for fish. It's more active and you have to be stealthy.

    My heart just sank...

    Well said. :thumbsup: :cool: :thumbsup:

    The Black Canyon of the Gunnison is famous, hard to get to and fish effectively. Big trout!
    Here are the two rods, his creel and Rosie. We would grab hand fulls of grass at the river's edge and put it and the trout in the creel. Kept the trout cool all day...I can still smell that smell:thumbsup:

    Being insanely behind on this thread, I read a few pages to catch up and come to the most current. But there’s nearly a month I missed.

    These two Lambsfoot knives are two of my main daily carries. I saw that post with the old Graflex and I had to participate.

    Hope everyone is doing well lately. I hope to be caught up (relatively) soon.
