Re: Marry Opening Day!

Just returned home from the opening day festivities, what a great time! The two celebrity guest were great people! Very down to earth and easy to be around. Mary was very shocked and a little embarrassed that so much was being made of her I think. But, I think that everyone that knows Mary knows she...

I have had this fascination with where some of the old time tiers have lived. Just wondering where Alfred Miller lived? And are there any pictures of his home?

Re: How many...

Love George Harvey's leader formula, slack/line cast leader! He showed my wife and son and I the "proper" way to cast it in his front yard years ago. He was then in his mid 80's,had trouble walking then but what a casting machine! Perfect casts every time! :D Nice leader for the "picky" fish!

Jim Warner Streamers

Re: Timberwolf Fly

The Timber wolf fly was originated by Don Gapen of Minnesota . It was used mainly for blue gill or pan fish in general. Had a bright floss body most often yellow but other colors were used.Wings were hackle tips tied spent. Hope this helped! ;)
