I’ve been dealing w/ a lot of family issues, in-laws & now w/ my father’s sister. We spent Thanksgiving touring two hospitals in Evergreen Park IL, so no fishing or tying. Got most of my swap flies done, but don’t like how the alpaca dubbed, so I’m going to review the round ones’ new DVD & see if that helps. Either way, I think I’ll redo half of them. Got no books planned, but if things work out, I’ll have a few stories to tell @ Sowbug.

I don't know about ya'll, but I've kinda enjoyed the peace and quiet we've had these last few days. Now we have a little lull and that perplexes me. I've been looking to see a post that all of us can join in on and help another VFB member. Or at least have a fishing/tying problem to share with the group. I've even tried to slip in a controversial Quote for the Day, but only one or two of you have commented. I'm sure this is just a passing thing and you guys are' either fishing, tying flies or doing other family oriented stuff. Many of us have been blessed with the opportunity to go fish. I wish I could, but alas, my feet are so shot that the only wading I can do is on a smooth, gravel bottom. So, I'm tying more flies than usual and working on my second outdoor humor book. Jody say's I'll never finish it, but I will just to spite her. I'm looking forward to Sow Bug and getting to see old friends. I've missed the last two because of family opportunities. I love the VFB and without it, there would be a big hole in my heart. You guys have done so much for me and especially for Jody during her bout with breast cancer. I love you guys and gals, and count all of you as "Family." SO . . . What's going on in your neck of the woods. Anybody want to talk about spine vs spline or Furled leaders? :-P ;-) P.S. If you have a new rod, reel etc. that you'd like to brag on now's the time to do it. I'll start it off. My oldest son gave me a brand new Tibor Light fly reel for my 70th birthday. Its a neat dark green and is the Tail Water CL model. and is engraved with my name and Happy 70th Year of Fishing. Have A Goodun. JIMMY D **************** ><((((((((º> ****************** JIMMY D.
