      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 .

No, I don't think so.

This mgiht be good for the guys at Lindy ($$$$), but I think it will hurt us fishermen down the road.

Hopefully those southern guys will know how to make Lindy Rigs the right way.

Most everyone I know makes their own riggs now it's just the rest of the line, fuzzy grubs and all the jigs. The spinner rigs will they remain the same? Now this stuff is going to be made by guys used to fishing with 20# test. Techni-glo will it be the same? who knows. I never thought of Pradco as a high end tackle manufacturer. but I could be wrong due to expansion on thier part.

From my friends at Lindy. The Pradco folks like what Lindy does and are planning to keep it the way it is operated. And keep it in Brainerd........I guess time will tell but they liked the product line enough to buy the company so that must mean they like the production.

If it all stays here we can probably expect the same tackle.

PRADCO is a quality company that has done a lot of good stuff with some of their brands in recent years. Yum and Booyah have really come around as premier companies and Silver Thread fishing line is, in my opinion, the best flourocarbon line you can find.

Lindy used to be a great company but in the last few years it seems as if they haven't had many very good ideas. They picked up Beckman nets and then didn't do much with it. They have a world of potential and hopefully they will be able to get rolling better with a big-brother bankrolling them.
