Re: New waders/boots

Re: Guild Vol 1 Mary Dette DVD

Hi Drlogik:

I am currently starting to liquidate all my books, tools, tying Materials, furniture and so on. I have a copy of Mary Dette that you can buy from me. Just PM me and I will get you a very reasonable price and get the DVD to you unless some one else has already done so.

Thanks

So I went on the vise tour for awhile and finally settled on an HMH for my home and a HMH Spartan for the road. Simple, easy to use, can turn the fly and plenty of...
