Yes sir, they're quite large commercial cookers. We usually cook for 100 - 300 people at a time.

Thanks LOFR. I have access to a couple of nice fish fryers if you need me to trailer them there. My best friend does quite a few volunteer fish fry fundraisers for churches and non-profits. I'll be happy to bring 'em with me if needed.

Hey LOFR, I think Keith Ritter came pretty close to hitting this one with a great looking tie he posted a few years/18 months ago...might be in his photo archives. Looked close to me!

I use a Redington "Pursuit" eight footer with a Greys reel. I bought the Rod at Sportsman Warehouse and the reel at local fly shop. I let the shop pick the real to get an excellent balance. I find the gills like a floating grasshopper fly or a Cicada during the hatch.

LOFR - I still can't find my porq quill. I think it sank to the bottom of the pond. I have lost every bobber I own except for the broken ones. There are bobbers in shrubs, trees, roots, pond, creek and fish.

Hey LOFR,

I finally took the quill out for a test fish.  Ok, so I had a rod n reel and a cane pole.  The cane had the quill on it and would you believe that was the only one to get a bite and catch a fish that day?  I managed to snag 3 smallish gills and a very little catfish!

 

I'll be taking another break from the garden soon and get back out with it!  Can't wait.  Thanks again for that special gift.

I am telling you this for a little sympathy, not because I want another quill. I lost mine in the pond the first day I got it when a catfish broke my line AGAIN. I have been watching all around the pond for it to pop up. (some of the lost thrills have done that) So far, nothing. My question is, do they float forever, or do they finally sink? If I ever recover it, I'm painting the top red.

Got my quill today. Thank you, thank you. Can't wait to try it out tomorrow.

Love it!

I don't know if you are sending the quill UPS or USPS. If it's by regular mail, you need to send it to P.O. Box 34  Chandler, TX 75758 Thanks again

Have you heard from Heather, BGBM's daughter? She mentioned to me she would like one of those shirts, and also a plate.

Thanks, BGBM was discribing how to make one. It sounds really interesting.

Boogie- add some split shot until just the red tip of that quill is above the water. Keep adding shot until you can get that tip as low as it will go.
This will allow you to cast that further and it will be much more sensitive for you. Quills are awesome but a bit heavy. I have an upgrade for you but those quills are pretty awesome!

You are on the right track. I was very excited to see who was fishing the quills - that would be porcupine quills everyone!

Party Pooper. Parade Rainer. Maybe you just can't stand progress. Don't matter. If they can build it, they will. Is they a record for how many you can get on a stringer, cause that's within MY reach. You can put a lot of butterbeans on one I know.

I started using quills this year but mine never stand up till a gill tugs on it. I guess I'm rigging it wrong, through the eye up top and the band holds it near the bottom half. Single "B" sinker. Clue me in on the mistake.

Wait a minute, The Bear wanted you and you didn't come?. You may not be smart enough to clue me in. Your profile photo looks like somebody I've seen before. He was all the time blowin' hisself up and fallin' off cliffs an' all! Is that why you didn't come, you was injured?

Your Lordship,
I just re-saw (is that a wurd?) your reply to Bruce Almighty's 20 words or less question. Am I to take it that you rig a flyrod like that? I saw that being done by a funny looking guy once and he swore by it. I tried my own rig later and just beat the water with it.

By the way, that funny looking feller tried to kill me in a lightning storm with his rig so if this question bugs you, nevermind.
