      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 .

Cubbies11 - I have built alot of rods and mostly use cabelas and netcraft. Call cabelas and ask for a tackle craft catalog and I believe netcraft has a web site. Any other questions just shoot. I and others can help avoid pitfalls...

I build all types of custom rods and do a lot of experimenting. We can discuss it in more depth. Lots of neat little tips for you!

Where are you located? I build all kinds of rods but I get most of my supplies from my local bait shop. Might want to make a run over to the St.Croix factory,you can pick up blanks cheap there.

Hello Cubbies- Check out Wild River Dist. they are located in Marine on the St. Croix. They carry ice blanks, and salvage fly tips (that can be made into a very nice ice rod). Let me know if you have any ?'s, I would love to help you out.

Not sure if you are close to Rochester, but we carry lots of blanks for all types of rods. We also offer rod building instruction. There are also several dozen custom rods already built to help with ideas.

Good Fishing,
Mike
