10 posts in this topic

I was wondering if someone know's where I can get different kinds of rod decals. I have looked at mudhole and was wondering if there was other places that has more options.

Decal Connection. I have them make custom decal's for my rods. They also carry an extensive collection of fish decals (and a few flames) which are pretty nice.

No,

I've been building rods up there for almost 20 years. Nothing wrong with plugging a good store!!!!

They have been in business along time for a reason. Great service and knowledge that can't be beat.

No different than you recommending Decal Connection

I hear you there. Why change a good thing if it works.

Sounds like they treat you right, and I know thay are vary good at what thay do.

Mid West rod and Reel is a bit closer for me(2 blocks) and Al and Bill Treat me well(and every one else that stops in).

Its nice having two shops in the metro, one on each side of town.

Remember back in the 80's (maybe your younger) I'm 47.

There use to be Rod Craft in Bloomington, Joes in St. Paul,

and a few others.

Are Thorne Bros & Mid West rod & Reel the only shops in the Metro.

They always go the extra mile. They appreciate the referrals and new Customers that come in that mention my name.

Let's just hope these two places will be around for a LONG TIME!!! grin

Thay are the only full service shops in the twin citys(Blanks, Components and classes)

There is somthing to be seid about the internet, and the little guys. frown

I remember Rod Crafters, I was young(I'm 31). My dad use to get rods repaired there. Thats how I got in to rod building(I started when I was 13).

The classes and the customer service is what keeps the shops open. IMO It's nices to see what your getting befor you buy it. Like buying cork on line or a blank based off the manufactuers ldea of what the action is, what a gamble.

Good wraps

Andy

    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
    • Hey featherslayer, you gonna register that nice bird of yours pretty soon?
    • cool find!  sure looks like a Swainson's.  
    • Great info.   Thanks Steve!   Jim
    • Came across this hawk on Earth Day at the edge of town. I've been told dark morph Red-tail, dark morph Swainson's and dark morph Broa- winged. Anyway, it's a dark morph some kind of hawk.
    • Yes it was.  I really needed one more layer today.  Lots of jakes and hens seen by us this morning.  Still looking for the toms.  Hope you had more luck.
    • There are a lot of apps available for that. Search your app store for "phone tracking" or something similar. Many give you the ability to share your positions so you both can see each other live. You might even have an app already on your phone. For example, I have Lookout Security installed on my phone and it includes the ability to find the location of my phone from another phone or PC. 
    • Watch your City Ordinances.  Some city's require a back-flow preventor, and it can be VERY expensive. I have both the battery backup, and the water driven sump pumps in my pit--all at different elevations, and feel very confident. When the water comes up, and the power goes out, the battery backup starts working.  After that the water driven sump pump will kick in.  The water driven pump will keep pumping until the power is restored and the main pump returns everything to normal. There is always water pressure in a power outage (from the tower).  Cities keep the tower full for fire protection
