  1. This may seem like an obscure topic, but it is important to me. Do any of you have favorite socks for doing lots of walking in the woods? I work outside, with lots of walking. for years the absolute best socks in the world were Bass Pro Shops' Red Head brand. They are thick, but soft. I wore them summer and winter because they cushion your feet and prevent blisters. Before they came around I would often double up on socks for a day in the woods, which makes you go through your sock drawer quickly. I am ready to order another batch, and I noticed that the RedHead socks didn't get good ratings on Cabela's own web page. Turns out, like everything else, people complained that they cheapened the manufacturing process, and the ones they sell today aren't as good. So what other socks out there are worth getting for long days of walking off-trail?
  2. Hello All, I just signed up to be a test subject for a vaccine that is being developed for Lyme disease. This is something I think about all the time, because I work outdoors and pull at least a couple of ticks out of myself every season. They still would like volunteers, so I will post the info for anybody who wants to sign up. Brief details: it is 18 months long, you go in once every couple of months to get a shot, they do pay you $800 for your involvement. There is a 1/3 chance the shot you get is a placebo. This is phase 2 of the clinical trials. I figured hunters and anybody whose job places them at a higher risk for Lyme should be interested in this.

  4. Yes, I made the fly and video. I was too busy to dig out my trolling fly box and photograph them, so I posted this!
  5. Just to add to this thread, here is how I tie one of my favorite trolling flies, should anyone care to try their hand at making trolling flies.
  6. Long Time Fisherman, Let me know if you can't find any source of trolling flies. I don't tie them to sell, because I was never fast enough to make any money at it. But I offer them to guys who invite me on their boat.
  7. https://fiddleheadfocus.com/2017/04/25/sports/sh-mainelyoutdoorscol-17-17/ Long Time Fisherman, here is a link that shows the kind of flies I use. I tie my own. You'd have to mail order them from places in Maine or New Hampshire.
  8. Yes I use small spin doctors with New England style tandem hooked trolling flies. Have caught all salmonids that way. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  9. I live in the middle of my village and it's hard to grow anything on my lawn! Deer are voracious, and they know where they're safe during hunting season!
  10. With each video, I'm whittling away at New York's tree species. Our forests are pretty diverse!
  11. I go with the fluorocarbon fuse. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. Hello All, Forgive me for the off topic video. But I had a very unusual summer, and, among other things, I got some good aerial shots of the Finger Lakes!
  13. Here's a video somebody did back in 2009 on Keuka.
