@Pàdruig Beautiful Image, Dylan.
Good morning, Guardians!
It’s a beauty!
If anyone can suggest how to reduce the Guardians Signature, it would greatly be appreciated. I simply forgot how to do it. Thank you.
I would delete the large one and copy paste a small one. I hope that will work for you
Thanks a lot guys It's going to take me a while to catch up today, took me 40 minutes just read all the posts! Morning Guardians
LOL! I never heard of anyone catching carp with a fly! During the Depression of the 1920's, my granddad had eaten just about every fish there was, even ones that are generally considered inedible. He'd eaten a lot of other stuff too!
Yes, it's an exciting feeling when you see trout see your fly
Nice to see you're getting some patina John
Wow Preston, what a great post Love that old wicker creel
Get catching up Joe! Fantastic pic
Another great photo OG
When I was a kid (50 years ago), they used to differentiate between 'split-cane' and ''built-cane' rods, is that still the case? The latter are the hexagonal type, made from sections of cane split and re-built for a sweeter action. No wonder they are expensive
Years ago here, it was the fibre-glass and carbon-fibre rods which were expensive! Happy fishing John
My first reel was an old wooden 'centre-pin', they were a little old-fashioned, even 50years ago, but you still saw them I used to do a lot of spinning for pike, it was considered quite 'exotic' here then!
Great stuff Rachel
That's a beast OG, you must have had some monster fish with it Nice pic
LOL! I knew a guy years ago who hooked his wife in the ear while casting! That's a great pic mate
LOL! Cool pics Your dad was a good photographer OG I once asked my mother to take a pic of a decent fish I had caught, all I wanted was the fish in my hands, I ended up with the fish, me, the river-bank, the nearest town, and a couple of neighbouring counties! :rolleyes
Nothing wrong with that Taylor, here fly-fishing was always for the rich folks, a little less so now thankfully, but the whole style of fishing has changed here since I was a kid. I picked up a fishing magazine a few years back, and I barely understood what was in it, the French system of fishing with long poles is apparently very prominent here now
Thanks Dwight! That's a good one, as always, my friend
Thanks John, that's a treat
Great to see you here Dylan, sounds like you have been 'gainfully employed' Beautiful photo of your '17 my friend
Looking good Vince
I don't have any vintage fishing tackle to show I'm afraid, even the stuff I made, all stolen years ago I do have a hat though!
Hope everyone had a great weekend, and that your week goes well
Thank you for the kind words, Jack. Much appreciated.
Well, I'm off to bed. I was trying to make it 'til page #1000 was posted so I could offer congrats at the opportune time, but no way
I'm sure that milestone will be reached while I'm off in la-la land and I'm anxious to see it.
Goodnight OG, hopefully you'll still get your page 1000 post in
Hopefully, page 1000 will be 20 posts of Lambfoot photos! Wouldn't that be cool?!
Hope you had a great weekend, Jack and all the Guardians. Here's to hoping Friday rolls around asap.
Thank you very much
Oh ya, the patina builds up quickly... and then I Flitz it off
I don't really know. The price of bamboo rods has always kept me from investigating them.
That's the way of the world.
Years ago, cheap cars had black trim and black wheels, while the expensive cars had lots of chrome. Nowadays, it's the other way around.
Good Morning Guardians
Seems you get sharp focus knives and blurry backgrounds, or in this case... the other way around
I don't think there's a discernible pattern. Changing fashions? Passing whims?
Thank you Preston.
Thank you Harvey.
Beautiful shot Dylan. Good grief that horn is amazing!
Thank you Jack.
@Prester John and @Ramrodmb lovely lamb compositions guys.
Have a great week Guardians.
I can believe that when you are hungry, and have no money you would eat almost anything to ease the pain.
Being an old fart and a pack rat, I have many old things! I have tried over the years to cull the belongings and now have just what I deem personally needed and cherished. That creel is one of the cherished
Great hat to have, especially with those two Lambsfoot...they would definitely be in the Orvis realm of things.
That would be great, maybe we all can make that happen. Nice detailed photo of your '19 Guardian's Lambsfoot, Mark.
John, I think it depends on the focus setting of your camera. Most have a square or series of lines and dots in the foregound...like a scope's reticle, that you can manipulate by moving the camera to get the closer object in focus or a distant one. On my iPhone I can just touch where I want the focus to be...on my DSLR not so easy, haven't really figured it out. Maybe someone with more knowledge of photography can explain it to us.
Great detail in that photo JP
Monday morning and on our way to 1000 pages...should be a cakewalk!
I have always loved fishing and fished to catch fish. Different times of the year and in different areas certain methods work better than others so Im prepared to 'tackle' whatever Mother Nature throws at me. Spinning gear has yielded fish when flies failed.
Dwight, there you go...knocking it out of the park with that shot of your Damascus Stag Lambsfoot, fantastic!
Thank you, I will experiment more.
Good morning Guardians! RALF and I had some Formosa Oolong this morning from my dragon pot.
Thank you, that worked sooooo much better
