  1. So what I am thinking of is a heat treatment. The one I had worked well enough, but the process caught my eye. My flinter was factory made and worked just fine. Good thing, because I would have probably screwed up the heat treating process.
  2. Afternoon BMC,


    Are you getting your fishing tackle limbered up?. ....I am. I fround a situation I want to fix . I have and old Fenwick Ferralite flyrod that really needs to be refinished as it is really dull and pretty ugly. Have you ever refinished a fiberglass or graphite rod? If so whet did you use or suggest I use.


    I have had the rod for at least 50 years. I also have a Pfleuger 1495 reel I've had since 1955. I use this setup on my pond for bass, crappie & bluegill.

      I don't think I can help you very much in the refinishing department. But I believe that Fenwick is still making rods. Perhaps you could get some info from them. These were top of the line rods back in the day, and still are high quality stuff. I believe it was designed originally by Don Green, who later moved on to Sage. My fly fishing club hosted 

      a slide show and lecture by Mr. Green, years ago. It was about fly fishing  for Atlantic Salmon in Eastern Canada. What a show. 


      That Pfleuger 1495 is an heirloom. I had one back in the day. Had the best braking system I have ever seen on a fly reel. Wish I still had it. 


      I no longer have contact with the club and all my buddies have passed on. So I am pretty much a dead end. 


      Let me know how it works out for you.

      Thanks, I'll keep in touch. Got to visit a fly shop in Durango to get some new line, I'll ask them.



  3. And well it should. California and Washington should never be allowed together.
  4. A mind is a terrible thing to waste, but I managed. Years ago I acquired a Navy Arms Flintlock to play with. I never truly mastered it, but did enjoy shooting it. My correct patch thickness was never established and my accuracy was always in question. But somewhere along the way, I recall reading about a method to refresh the frizzen when it failed to ignite the powder. IIRC this was due to the flint causing the frizzen to require treatment of some kind. So I ask those that are Flinters, what was the reason, and how do you accomplish the matter? A footnote: I still admire the sleek lines of a Kentucky rifle and the feel and look of a well defined and figured stock.
  5. Alpo, women will dress anyway they want, and if men don't like it, well I doubt that they will change. I believe that most , if not all, women dress to impress other women, more so than men. That said, I am a man so I don't really understand the process at all.
  6. Obviously you never had pizza at Famous Pizza, on Woodward Avenue in downtown Detroit. Don't know if they are still around, but back in the Day, that was gooooooood pizza.
  7. Dutch, how can one cook on cast iron anything, without Bacon. Bacon is the lubricant of the culinary world. Can't have a good seasoned surface without BACON
  8. Not to worry Hardpan. Oscar Meyer is now appearing at a supermarket near you. Go in, pick up a pack of eight hotdogs, to go with the package of 8 buns, get you some of your everyday pickle relish, some yellow mustard, and a libation of your liking. Ya got the start of a picnic.
  9. So very sorry to learn this, Kris. My deepest condolence to you and Uno. My prayers go with you both.
