      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 .

Take a Walk With Me

The earth has thawed and the first greenery is pushing through the browns on the forest floor reaching to the sun to throw off winter's snowy shackles.

Scarlet Elf Cups are popping out from the damp roots of long dormant tree roots.

The rain is a little cold but it doesn't matter.  At least it isn't snow!

Virginia Blue Bells and Wood Anemones carpet the floors of the hidden valleys and meadows.

Baby birds dream about their mother bringing them a long juicy night crawler.

A Fishing Spider prepares to dine on a question mark butterfly.

A Buck Fawn lays perfectly still like mother nature taught it when an intruder has found it.

I admire a flower on stream that I don't know what is and later identify it as the most deadly wildflower in Wisconsin.  Night Shade.

I slowly walk and breath in one of my favorite streams in the heart of Wisconsin's Driftless Area.

Blossoms of all kinds are exploding and delighting your senses.

I have fished the Leinbach River in Bavaria.


I have gazed at the Salz River in Austria.


I've walked on the beach at sunset in Florida.


I have admired the Mississippi River from her bluffs.


I have felt the spray from an Alpine waterfall.


I have enjoyed a meal with my beautiful wife on Lake Cheimsee .


I have rode on a gondola in Venice.


None of them hold a candle to my home waters in Wisconsin's Driftless.
