      How to create an @mention - Click Here   07/16/2015

      You can use the @mention aspect whenever you want someone to be notified about a post or let them know you are talking about them. Type the @ symbol type in a couple "lowercase" letters pause then once the names pop-up either select or keep typing in letters to narrow down the list until you get the @mention name you are looking for. You can play a game so members can see how it works. If you want to practice or If your name has been @mentioned below you should see it in your notifications (upper right) and you then have to @mention one or two members who haven't been mentioned inthe comments section below. Let's see how long we can keep this going. Anyone who duplicates a name that has already been @mentioned loses. This is the first group to be @mentioned to get the ball rolling: @Borch @Scott K @Corey Bechtold @Matt Johnson @mrklean @eyeguy 54 @Finns @IceHawk @MarkB @Cliff Wagenbach @Wayne Ek

I got a tournament shirt through them last year. Gemini makes a great product. I would compare the shirts to "loose gear" from underarmour. I have washed my shirt many times without any fading or bleeding of logos. I would definately reccommend them!

I will second and third what the other guys are saying. Got my shirt in a timely fashion and looks great. Wore it last year and still looks new. The thing i like about it best is I have a long sleeve one and even when it's 85 it is still very cool.

I also got mine from them last year. The customer service is outstanding. I washed mine a few times a week last bass season and it still looks as it did when I received it. The shirt is light and you will stay cool even on the hottest of days. I would definately reccommend them also!

When all said and done, just a hair over $100 per shirt(I think).. The shirt is about $75 and then there is a set up fee and such.

It is a very nice shirt, a wicking shirt, very cool on hot days. And it was just fun to design the shirt. I have a long and a short sleeve. I wish I had a pict of the back of mine, as there are logo's there as well.

I have had several of the shirts, We used them for our tournament shirts at Crestliner. they last for a long time and are well worth the money.

they give you a professional look.

Much better than embroidery and patches.

You will not be sorry you spent the money on them

Unless you were sponsored wouldn't you feel like just a big walking billboard wearing one of those?

says the man who has a G-Loomis Hoodie in his avitar... LOL, just kidding.

Yes to some extent.. I have seen some with picts of their kids on them.. Or maybe its your own business, or maybe you are trying to get sponsors? People like to wear nascar shirts to races too, I dont have a problem with someone wearing a fishing shirt to a tournament...

My shirt is for my sponsors.. with many sponsor agreements, they require a space on your shirt... to hvae them embroidered would be VERY costly.. this is a very good and very comfortable option.

My fishing partners and I made fishing jerseys for our made up team. We do a lot of team tournaments so we thought we'd get some shirts done. They aren't made by Gemini and we have everything embroidered, but we keep the work local and have found a good small business in WBL. We are working on our first sponsor now, but I think that just having a fishing shirt is fun. It adds to our team unity out on the water and off the water. Plus, maybe folks might see that we are serious enough and might take an interest. Who knows, its all great fun and I can't wait for the first tournament this spring.

I really like the new dyed shirts that have become popular. Dietz, did you get to design the green bass on it as well??? Either way it's a very cool looking shirt, I think I saw it there at Cabelas. Maybe I'll look into one for myself, it can have team me on it with a cougar!

    • Them gun safe's ain't filling themselves I thought we all already had one.    
    • Yes, I know that. But the squirrel tail is the best material for jigs. My intent was to let you know the PREFERRED material for tying. It would also be the PREFERRED material for tying jigs. Marabou would also make dynamite jigs but would not be as durable.
    • The one I have only runs when the furnace is on.  In the summer I turn off the water that goes to it and turn down the humidistat.  There are no moving parts in mine.  In the winter a solenoid opens the water line and water trickles over a filter like thing.  Unless your rig is really old I suspect it works about the same way.  Be sure to keep the humidity in the house to the proper level.  You can get all sorts of guidance on line.
    • I was thinking more about the hair jigs.  
    • Generally fly tiers much prefer squirrel tail hair.  There are several long standing patterns that use squirrel but  I don't recall ever hearing anybody talk about raccoon tails. The body fur might be useful as dubbing material but there are too many other options to make it worth the trouble.  I doubt anybody would find possum fur of value as a fly tying material,   but then I'm no expert. And I know nothing about making spinning lures and have never sold a pelt to any fishing tackle company.  Squirrels are my pals.
    • I have hardwood in my new house and a drum style house humidifier - does the humidifier only run when the heat (furnace) is on. And if thats the case how do you run the humidifier in summer if its always going to be hot enough to not require the furnace to run?
    •    The electric choke dose not open and close according to engine temp.    The electric choke starts to warm up when you turn the ignition key on.  If you leave the key on but don't start the engine the choke will continue to warm and eventual open.  So a normal cold start with any carb regardless of choke type is to pump the peddle to get a shot of fuel from the accelerator pump.   If you had an automatic choke that peddle pump would set the choke too.   Now crank over the engine. If your electric choke is open before you've put power to it it'll need to be adjusted.  Loosen the set screws at the round black cap and rotate the cap till the choke closes.  Snug the screws back up.   Chances are you'll have to go back and fine tune this along with the high idle speed.     I'm sure you can find that procedure on the net somewhere.      The miss and cut out at higher RPMs could be a lot of things but could be related to the choke and specifically a choke butterfly closing by the increased vacuum.  Thats contrary to a choke being pulled open by vacuum but I've seen it happen when the choke isn't right when under load and vacuum drops with throttle butterflies wide open.    At any rate adjust the choke to fix the cold start issue and that might clear up the cut out.   If your still bogging, wire the choke open after the engine has warmed and try it under load.
