      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 .

Fishing Rod for Vision Impaired?

Recommended Posts

Need some help guy's. Got a buddy who lost sight in one eye last fall and the vision in his so called "good eye" is about nill. He is trying to fish with his regular fishing equipment. He is having problems with the line getting wrapped around the eyelets of the rods and is wondering if they make a rod that the line goes through the center of to eliminate any snagging or tangling amongst the eyelets. He does a lot of his fishing in waders after dark (yeah I know that doesn't help with poor vision). Any thoughts or products out there would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

You should check out the Innercast rods from one of the larger sporting goods retailers in the state.

It's called a Pro-caster, the line runs through the blank. No guides. They used to sell them in the major catalogs, but I couldn't find them now. I found them on a web-site but it would be against policy to link it for you. post your e-mail and I'll send it out for you

Cabella's sells a rod where the line runs through the rod. (Innercast I think) I bought one for my step Dad as a novelty a couple years ago. It's difficult to get the line through it even with the tool supplied, and I'm guessing would be almost impossible for someone with poor vision to re-rig easily.
I wouldn't suggest it.

Thanks for the fast reply's guy's. I'll check into them. It's hard to realize sometimes the things we take for granted until they are taken away from us or made nearly impossible to accomplish on a daily basis. Thanks again and I'll check later for any other reply's!! WWW
