Hey, Gents, I need to apologize for not being out fishing! As most of you know, I shoot traditional archery, and took her Ladyship to the Moses Lake Rock Shoot two weekends ago. While she has both a linen-backed English longbow and a Samick takedown recurve, she never shot. The short version is: she finds a really nice cedar quiver, mentions to the maker that she'd really like to find an adult bow (she's 5'-2", draws only 26 inches at 24 pounds, and finding anything but a child's bow is very hard). Unfortunately, the guy next to the quiver-seller had a beautiful Dan Tolke bow, made for his wife, who couldn't shoot anymore. The right poundage, right size, and just a beautiful little wand, but with amazing power and speed. She snapped it up. So here I am after three days of shooting in the scablands, bone-tired, sore, windblown, with dust everywhere. We'd finished three of the four shooting courses, all with her new bow, and she's actually hitting things! I just put my feet up, poured a glass of cognac, and lit a nice Man-o-War cigar, when she pops out of the trailer and says "can we go again?"! So for a once non-shooter, she came away with a new bow, new quiver, 3 dozen shafts which I'm right in the middle of turning into arrows, plus a ton of other necessary stuff. I'm buried here! In addition, she brought all the other 3-D shooting event brochures she could find with her, and began marking them on the calendar. I'm up to my eyeballs here, and no fishing in sight!!
