      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 .

Is any one a member of Northern flight hunting retrievers association? Im thinking about joining. I looking to join a retriever club but dont know what one is best for me. I live in St. paul just want to hang around people with good dog. That have spent time training them and can give me advice about training my lad for trails. I also would like to volunteer in some thing that have to do with dogs and hunting. So if any of you are members of a club let me know what you think.

thanks

I used to be a member of that club. I used to do a lot of the hunt tests with my golden. Which were a lot of fun, at times frustrating however I think it was worth it. To me it was just about training oppourtunities and bonding time with my Golden. They meet once a week out at Kelley Farms in Hugo. Though I ended up getting a training membership out there of my own for $200 which I used quite a bit.

I personally felt the club was too political so I didn't stay a member long. There are many excellent members that really did help me with some training issues. And others that didn't. Overall it is a great asset to training your dog.

Overall it was a good experience.

If you have any specific questions feel free to ask.

You will have to go out to the farm yourself. You can not do it online. They are right off of Manning Trl. just south of county rd 4 in the hugo/ st. croix.

DRH1175, What do you get for $200.00? That certainly seems like an awful lot. Most retriever clubs that would be a lifetime membership.

Thanks

Training passes and membership in Northern Flight (NFHRA) are two separate things. The training passes are through Kelley Farms - you'd want to talk to either Steve or Maury Grogan, they manage the farm. Membership in NFHRA includes Wednesday nights with the club at Kelley Farms from roughly April through the end of August depending on the weather. Northern Flight's website is http://www.nfhra.org and there is more information there on the club, training nights, hunt tests and other things we do. Hope that helps.

$200.00 to train at Kelly farms for the summer is way over priced.

Go join a local retriever club for $35.00 and train for 12 months with the use of dead birds the whole time.

GOOD LUCK with what ever choice you make.

Depends what kind of training your doing. Some of us want to work live birds....and lots of them. Only place to do that is a game farm or a place like Kelly Farms, or private land if you have access to that.

I can tell you a game farm is not any less (probably MUCH more) if you are getting out routinely and buying birds from them.

We shoot flyers every week at the retiever club plus we get the use of the dead birds that are in the freezer.

Can you buy birds at Kelley Farms?

If the answer is no then I would ask again, why would you spend $200.00 to train there?

duckbuster he told me they don't have birds there. I don't know why you would spent $200 or $250 like it is this year. maybe the retiever club had some or they were save for the club.

      From someone who grew up as a back reeling aficionado, I've learned to appreciate a quality drag on a reel.  It's the one thing I'll gladly pay for. Modern drag systems are so much better than they used to be.  Not taking advantage of them is leaving a lot of the value of a quality reel on the table.  Unused and wasted. So, is that the kind of opinion you were looking for?

      They are already established in OT.  Pulled docks at my sisters place with about 75% covered in zebes.  Wear shoes when your in the water.

      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.
