      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 .

Where so you get supplies?

Recommended Posts

I am just about to start my first build and I think I am going to like rod building as a new hobby. I am curious to where all you seasoned rod builders buy your supplies? I am also still looking to buy a cheap rob dryer. I don't have any tools or scraps to make my own so buying is my only option. Any suggestions? I have seen a couple on the big online auction site for around 40 bucks. Is that too cheap? With shipping I would be looking at around $60. Is there any stores that have them for that much money?

Thanks in advance guys.

I think the Big auction site would be a start to decide if its something you want to do Theres a couple on there shipped for $45 or so and it would give you a good idea if you needed to build your own in the future. As far as building supplies theres Thorne Janns Mudh*le and few in the south metro area as well.

Thorne Bros (though finding some thread colors are hard)

regardless of where you buy I highly recommend you put a list together of what you believe you need prior to ordering (been there did that and waiting on something you forgot and ordered afterwards can be a tad frustrating in the middle of a project) especailly if you try wraps and/or weaves.
