      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 .

Fixing Fish Trap Voyageur

Recommended Posts

My fish trap voyageur has been good to me for the last two seasons. However, I have had one problem that is probably about 75% user error and 25% manufacturing error. The sleeve on the front of my trap which holds the horizontal cross bar that sits on the ice keeps ripping out on me. It doesn’t actually rip but the stitching comes undone, I’ve glued it with fabric glue (recommended by usl) and tried sowing and gluing it, but it doesn’t seem to hold.

What’s happening is that some of the loose fabric from when it’s folded up gets caught in the cross bars, so when I go to raise the first pole, there is resistance and it tears. Like I said, user error, but I would think that it should hold a little better than that.

This weekend I am going to bring it in the house and Sew/Glue again. (I’m thinking the glue will set much better in the house vs. in the garage with the heater running) but I was wondering if anyone had any other suggestions.

As always, I appreciate you help everyone.

One of the great things about Fireline is that it makes great thread, and holds like iron. Rather than just making a continuous stitch, it might be best if you made one stitch at a time, pulling the Fireline very tight and knotting it and then cutting the line before starting the next stitch, sort of like a doc putting in sutures. I like the 12/6 Fireline for most repairs. Something as tough as USL's ice fabric might be better served with the 25/12 Fireline.
