      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 .

My Scott got a baby brother

After picking up a Scott ARC 1008/4 last month, I couldn't pass up on seconds. I picked up another deal on a Scott ARC 956/4, a 9'6" 6 weight (4 piece). This has the same progressive taper as the 8 wt, and has a fighting butt to boot!

I also got an extremely good deal on a new reel and line from a "superbowl special". The 6 wt setup will be indentical to the 8 wt: Lamson Velocity Hard Alox (size 2) and Scientific Anglers Steelhead taper.

I should be able to give the old one-two punch to the fish with these setups.

Is it spring yet? grin.gif

I think you're in the market for a 12-step program, JP. grin.gif

Nice rods, btw. ;\)

Yeah, so far 2008 has been the year for gear. I've got the new Patagonia Double Haul pack coming on Monday. It is redesigned for 2008 and is modular so the chest pack and hip pack can be worn independently of each other. It looks awesome and should be pretty versatile, especially for travelling light.

It's been nice, with my wife now working as a 0.5, there's finally been some funding available for "capital improvements". I've still got more gift cards from xmas and my birthday to use yet too. Should be a fun year.

Yup, once you go Scott, you’ll never look back – I “collect” the old, old ones. I just recently acquired a San Francisco era G series 8’8” 3 wt. the thing still had the plastic on the cork, it was brand new and never taken out of the tube, a heck of find. Those ARC’s are a little fast for my taste, but nice rods nonetheless. Yes sir, a huge Scott fan.

The current Scott count in my house hold is 5; all but one is at least 10 to 15 years old. Lamson reels? Got a bunch of them too.
