      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 .

Where to find an heirloom quality spear?

Recommended Posts

Anyone know who makes really good "heirloom quality" spears?

The only ones I seem to find are the run of the mill production ones. I have been borrowing my buddies spear that was handmade for him and I want my own but I can't seem to find a nice one.

When I ask other guys where they got theirs the say "from my grandpa" or from "old man Johnson... but he passed away years ago"!

Any help is appreciated.

Notcho, Try Fabeck spears from Melrose MN., 320-256-5623, He is building the Jeremy Kraemer spear,you might get a 9 tine for next year if you contact now, . These spears will be the next Dillo, or Louis, or Pimple spears when your kids are grown up, believe me!!. If you have any questions , get back to me. Dark house Mike

There's a guy that lives outside Plato, MN (assume he's still there) I bought my saw from. (SW Saw's maybe is the name of his company??). His fist name is Harlan I believe. He makes the most beautiful spear I have ever seen or touched. They truly are masterpieces. They are also $250, but from what I saw when picking up my saw, they would be well worth it. Unbelievable quality. I will get his info off my saw case this weekend and post it.

Thanks for the feedback!

I spoke with Michael Fabeck (very nice on the phone) today and I am still waiting for a callback from the double diamond guy on price and availability.

My buddy has a Pimpl spear that I used and I am trying to get the same quality.
