      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

How to carry spinners?

Recommended Posts

I'm fairly new to trout fishing, I have been doing it now for about 4 years. I am wondering what you folks are using to carry different colors/sizes/styles of lures with, while walking the streams. I finally broke down, and bought my first pair of waders, and found it rather difficult to carry different tackle and change lures while in the water...................so what whats the best way to carry extra tackle?

I also use a small backpack that I use for bug repellent, water, flashlight, extra tackle, camera, xtra line, etc. My selected spinners go in my front pouch in the waders in a small tackle box.

I have a vest, a fanny pack, and two chest packs. The vest is the most comfortable if I dont overload it. Too much stuff and it pulls to the back. My one chest pack has two big areas on the front and a big compartment on the back plus two drink holders. If im going to be on the streams long enough to need multiple drinks, a sandwich, and rain gear then I like the chest pack. The vest and chest pack are cabelas but tons of options out there. This spring I scarfed up a nice fanny pack on a sweet on-line bid where I saved about 80%! I have only used it a few times but like it. It has two water bottle holders and decent storage. I tend to bring the kitchen sink and run out of room. cool

Get a fly fishing vest, and one of the little 3 dollar tackle boxes from any sports store. They have small compartments that are perfect for small spinners. The pockets are great for all the things needed while trout fishing, small tackle box, camera, forceps(pliers), etc. The little loops/plastic rings on the outsides of most vests are great to for attaching a small measuring tape, net, and pliers attached to a bungee.
