Met a fellow FM'er today!

4 posts in this topic

I was set up at a local small arts and crafts show today and a lady walked up to my booth and said "XT, I'm fishingchicks". Actually, her and her lovely daughter make up the team of fishinchicks, the reason for the plural. She tells me that her daughter is actually the one that's a fanatic about fishing. I just wanted to mention that it was a real pleasure meeting another FM'er in person. She's just as delightful in person as she is online.

Thanks, X. Now I'm blushing. grin

It was great to meet you as well. It is always fun to put a face to a name. My daughter thought it was cool to meet someone else who has gotten the photo obsession. smile

Boy X, you're going to know all of us pretty soon.

By the way, was this show a little better than the last one?

It was local and indoors and didn't cost me $250 to set up. So Yes, at least I came out ahead this time. Unfortunately, due to the cancelling of a parade on this date, the show didn't draw people from out of town like in past years. I may do 3 more shows in November. I've been told that it can take a couple years of trial and error to figure out which shows work. I can tell you one thing. My area does not have many bird watchers or nature lovers. The majority of the people walk by and just glance at my product. Anyone into nature and birding in particular, can't help but step up to the table to at least discuss birding. Location, location, location.

Thanks for asking.

    • What exactly will you be using it for? Driving around the country with the top down, hunting the back woods, fording small creeks?   Do you have a particular budget to stick to?
    • at times the prop will stop on mine, usually when I move it to turn, need to tear into it sometime, I have use fishelectronics for misc. parts
    • I might have to get out and test drive a few and figure out what I like and don't like. Definitly not buying new so Ill narrow it down a bit and then wait for that cherry to show up.
    • Good job on getting it done with a limited amount of time left to hunt.
    • Love the curvature of the antlers.   Beautiful mount!
    • Not a monster for sure but he makes the season a success. I wasnt going to be able to hunt tomorrow because of a first communion, not afternoon today because of my dads birthday, and only evenings Monday&Tuesday.  So time was limited and i am more than happy to eat jake. Here he is.
    • Either I'm slackin', or the sun is rising earlier than it did last year! Didn't make it to the river until 6, but surprisingly I was still the first to arrive  walked to my normal starting spot, but once there, something told me to go out of the ordinary. So I packed away my black panther martin and put on a crayfish husky jerk. I didn't catch the trophy I desired, but I did catch some nice ones, with the biggest being about 15 inches. I ventured farther downstream than I ever had before, and wanted to keep going, but it appeared that the fishing easement ended, and I may have been on private property. I stayed in the river the entire time, but didn't want to push my luck, so I went back upstream. Caught 19 total, probably lost at least as many. Surprisingly, no brook trout though. 
    • Oh yeah, a lot of the newer 1/2 tons have frame rust issues as well.  If you want a serious off-road machine, you need to go back to the models with the straight front axles, and of course, they're getting harder to find in decent shape too.  Especially in the rust belt.  You can still find solid older trucks if you head west, young man...        
    • Just to be clear- The wrangler wasn't introduced until 87 so at least compare apples to apples and having owned ford,chevy and dodge trucks of the Wrangler era I can testify they all have issues. My 08 Ram had more frame and fender rust than my older Jeep. The Chevy's have plenty of frame issues as well. Yes. It's a concern but if you want something like this,there is no better alternative.   https://www.google.com/search?q=chevy+frame+rust+problems&client=opera&hs=Lrs&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjAnPz1kMrTAhVpw4MKHSs9B1UQ_AUICigB&biw=800&bih=381
