Man, I see guys do that with silvers out on the Sound.
What a great shot! How do you keep him from getting in to your tying materials? I have a little one coming up on three, and boy is she busy and inquisitive; my stuff is boxed up in the attic, but I want to break it out . . .
Actually I have my tying desk currently in the 'play room' where the kids hang out, we have the TV, toy boxes, etc. It's a rolltop desk and they can't open it. But it's left open 90% of the time. I let them see me work, and they get bored pretty quick actually. So they lose interest in the whole thing. I also show them how sharp and dangerous the hooks are by poking myself in the fingering and shouting out in pain (a little theatrics) to show just what would happen if they touched one. My cat doesn't even bother it either. But with the super glue, super sharp scissors, bodkin, boxes of hooks, etc, I really need to keep it shut. The bad news is, my wife has new plans for the playroom, and my beat up old desk does not seem to fit in the designs... I may get bumped to the garage.
