      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 .

1lb mono huh?

I'll look into that thanks.

I know the braid gets that small, but I need the stiffness of a mono. Not concerned about strength.

I'll keep brainstorming......

Look for some mono type sewing thread at a fabric store, I think you'll be able to find what you're looking for at a place like that.

Yes there is. Tectan monofilament is sold by Cabelas and you will be able to find it at the Cabelas web site. Their 2# test is .0031 and 3.1# test is 0.0039. It is very good line. I believe the one you want is Premium Plus, probably in clear although I think they sell green also. I use the 3# for trout fishing and it is excellent for the purpose.

Second, if you need just a small amount, use 8x fly fishing tippet material.

May I ask your application for this fine line?

Sure, Rio Powerflex 7x tippet material is .004 in, and 8x is .003 in. Pretty small stuff but needed if you plan on using size 32 trico dry flies.
