    NFR Cleaning moss off an asphalt roof

    I own a high pitch (probably 12/12) asphalt shingle roof; and parts of it have an alarming amount of moss that grew this winter -- we moved in last August and there were traces of moss, but now there are golf ball and larger chunks. I'm trying to avoid hiring someone, and also trying to avoid...

    An explanation of what a Project Healing Waters program is. A lot of people have misconceptions

    I've met up with many people over the years through trade shows, donation pickups, or them volunteering to help. Very few people have volunteered behind the scenes or I should say at the core level of the program. So now I'm going to explain what it is we do. We are a fly tying organization...

    An Hour and a Half of Frustration, 5 Mins. of Glory

    Many years ago when I still had some decent vision I built a 7 foot rod on a Fenwick blank. A nice 6 weight that I built while recovering from hernia surgery so I had a lot of time on my hands and consequently a lot of wraps, I think just over 50 in total. For a glass rod it feels a bit fast...

    Burkheimer 8139-4 Vintage with a spare tip. The road was made in in 2013 and is more of a heavier wt.7. For example 480 gr or 450 gr 34’ Scandi floater + leader or 30-45 gr polyleader is perfect. Another option is Rio Scandi wt.7 body 370 gr + 90 gr wt. 7 tip. This rod has a similar taper to...

    Getting an education in Fly Fishing gear.

    Ran across an ad for a new Pflueger Medalist reel. Since my first fly reel was a Medalist I took a look. My first question was where is it being produced? Never did find out. Then I find out it has a click and pawl system. What happened to that adjustable system from the far distant 1960's...

    A Long Year Coming to an End, Hopefully!

    A little over a year ago I tore a tendon in my shoulder which pretty much ended my early lake fishing as I could not handle a canoe on the top of my truck. I had a very nice pram built by nomlasder and then my access for dialyisis blew out for the next four months. This is not a poor me, just...

    The cold winter claims an old friend

    I made the mistake of leaving my Fishin'Buddy 1101 in the cold side of my barn this winter. When I put new batteries in it and turned it on the screen was garbled and not even the temperature showed. Damn! It was one I bought years ago from a fellow board member and was the perfect companion to...

    Hey all, Going to buy an 8 wt steelhead nymphing boat rod, but also going to Hawaii for my anniversary in May and would love to try my hand at bone fishing.

    One Advantage Of Becoming An Ol' Fart

    I don't know if the same holds true for Washington but in Oregon, once you turn 65 and if you lived in the state for 50 years or more, you qualify for what they call a "Pioneer " fishing/hunting license. I turned 65 in September and I've most certainly lived here longer than 50 years so I...

    Just An Idle Thought

    On a Saturday morning. How about a small woolie bugger tied with an black marabou tail, hot orange body, and black hackle? Kind of like a Halloween bugger. More importantly, wonder what the fish would think of it.
