      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 .

Yeah, they rock. I always seem to do better with them than other patterns. Of course I use them more and perhaps fish more confidently with them as well...

I've even taken to building them from components and painting yellow/red dots to save money.

you gonna try it? I was even able to repair a PM I that I clippd the barbs off when unhooking a fish...

a couple weeks ago i busted the hooks on 2 brand new PMs trying to bend the barbs down.. i was pretty p'd off to say the least..

i may try it.. im googling to see other options.. is cabelas #3 or #5 blade equal to PMs #4 blade? or are both smaller/bigger than a #4... plus i'd almost rather be able to buy parts seperately.. to build more custom inlines.. instead of buying this kit then buying different hooks and such.. i may check it out though when i have the extra cash.. PMs are so darn expensive these days....

have you tried Mepps XD's? they have the same blade style as PMs.. just dont have any yellow/red styles.. but im wondering how they match up.. seeing as they are about $1.50 less or so than PMs

Where you find the XD's?

I have the blade size comparison written down. One of them is a perfect size 4, yes.

I found a place in canada where you can get components, but the shipping seemed high. Perhaps we can order together...

Google "Canada Lure Making"

i just figured it out.. without including S&H.. buying in 100pc bulk of each component comes to just under $0.80.. but like you said.. still thats after an investment of around $80
