Re: Libertone's Genesee Jewel

Cheese Whiz Guys....These patterns are awesome! They are so very "fishable" in all seasons and waters! In fact, I think even I could accomplish this! Mark would be oh, so proud of both patterns!

Re: Ruffed Grouse Skin

Dana, That's pretty cool! It's nice to know that they are still around! I miss them terribly! One of our friends here locally recorded (on her smart phone of course) a whip-poor-will very close to their house! I had not heard one of those in a very long time! How exciting that was to hear this once ...

I could cry out loud over the numbers of skins I literally destroyed due to stupidity and simply wanting to get the birds skinned and in the freezer or in the pot! All of t...

Re: Salar's Nemesis Redux

Again, Wow Guys! Both patterns are exceptional! That Alec Jackson hook has some good looks about it for sure! Bill S., I like the "fortified" body of your pattern. That adds a new dimension and look to your already great work in that area! You guys are making history with your contributions here and...
