      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 .

Antique Lures

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I've acquired some older lures from a deceased friend of the family. I don't really think they are worth anything special. That being said, I'd like to know if there is anyone in the metro area who might have knowledge of older lures. I'd like to simply sit down with someone and hear what they have to say - both on the lures, and the original manufacturers.

I appreciate it, if you can point me in a direction that helps me.

Thanks.

OR, if you know the names of the lures, go on the electronic bay auction site and see what they are going for.

There are many ways to get an idea of what your lures are worth. hsolist tends to be a bit over inflated for the most part. Look up the national freshwater lure collectors club there are avid collectors there that would give you an idea of worth and could probably tell you a bit about the lure. There are lots of books out there including the lure collectors bible/encyclopedia which has pics and descriptions as well as a collectors value range. I would sure like to see what you have and would be able to clue you in as to what they are and a general collectors value if your willing to post some pics here.

What tunrevir said. I can give you an idea. I have a modest collection and a few books. I'm losing my edge though after stopping cold turkey. Last time someone posted a pic on here, I messed one of the lures up and could only remember about 3/6 from the top of my head.

Closeup shots of hardware (cups, eyes, hooks, joints, stamped letter, etc) help the most.
