      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 .

Broken Fly Fishing Reel

Recommended Posts

Now I did it!! I dropped my fly fsihing reel on the garage floor & broke the return/wind lever. Any one have any place I can contact
about replacement parts for a 30+ year old reel? I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be able to get parts from the Original Manufacturer. I also have a broken bait-casting reel from around the 50's that I might want to restore. Any leads on where to find old parts like this would be appreciated. smile.gif
Thnks!

Good Luck & Watch your bobber!

MnSportsman,
What kind of a reel is it. I have some old fly fishing reels and rods that I came across in my parents garage when they moved. Looks like some of the reels were never used.. Let me know and I'll take a look to see what I have.

if you don't want to buy a new one, and you can't find anyone near by, i would highly recommend the following, call em him up he'll probably tell you in 10 seconds whether he can do it, or what your chances are of getting it fixed,

I sent him a 60's vintage Johnson Sabre and he had all the parts it needed and charged a fair price too.
