      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 .

Tying The Chernobyl Squirrel Tail Nymph

Dave Whitlock's Squirrel Tail Nymph

Hook: Kamasan B175 Size 10

Thread: Black 6/0

Bead: 1/8" Gold

Tail: Red Fox Squirrel Tail

Body: 80 % Insect Green Hareline Dub Mixed with 20% Pearl Flash-a-bou Dub

Rib: Copper Wire

Legs: Grizzly Chartreuse tied Madam X Style

Front Hackle: Ruffled Grouse Body

Collar: Natural Fox Squirrel Dubbing

This is a little tricky to make since there is so much stuff on the hook. The key here is not to over do this fly. Begin by sliding a bead on the hook. Tie in the tail. Set length of the tail equal to the hook shank. Tie in rib. Dub 2/3 of the body with mix listed above. Make one or two turns of squirrel dub to form collar. Tie one leg to each side. Legs should flare evenly in an "X" pattern away from the sides. Dub between the split legs or down the crotch of the "X". Tie in grouse hackle and make 2 wraps. Tie off and whip finish. If the head is to crowded, make jiggle wraps to put the thread down between the grouse hackle. ( A jiggle wrap is where you move the thread side to side to snug the thread between fibers.) If you like leave the grouse off or the legs off.

You can also do a Google search for pictures.

      Are you out to add color or protect the wood or both? A natural oil sealer is something to consider -- it lets the beauty of the natural cedar show though and still protects the wood. You can also get the same type of "penetrating oil sealer" in colors. Hard finishes (varnish) may look tacky and will require re-sanding and finishing over time --while the oil sealers can be touched up annually with a new light coat without sanding -- a much more natural look. Go to a "real" paint store and talk to them about your project -- skip the Home Depots and Lowe's "advice"

      you want a hard, fine-grained wood for carving lures. high quality wood so your hardware won't split the wood or so it won't soak up a lot of water then split. water WILL gain access to the wood no matter how good the paint. 
      and the acrylic is fine.

      I know this: you need to be on the water around 4:00am and the window of opportunity is small. When 6:00am rolls around, you should be done fishing for sturgeon.

      Was up this last weekend got out Saturday morning and Sunday morning.  The fish were biting very aggressively which made for a good time.  All fish from 14"-19".  No slot fish which was a surprise.  On a side note...  I've never had too much trouble with people honing in on where I am fishing.  But Sunday morning I started fishing this spot around 8am (which is late for me).  Nobody was around me and within an hour there had to of been six new boats around me.   I don't mind too much if your fishing an area by me but when you start trolling and drifting my same exact line I am???  Like do you want to hop in my boat and fish with me too?  Some people I tell ya..  Anyways get out there, the fish are biting.   Just remember there is 40,000 acres of water to fish out there.

      Ace, I've (along with countless others) have so appreciated your advice on this forum- your knowledge is invaluable. Can't thank you enough for being willing to share- that can be a rare thing these days!  I hope the retirement from guiding isn't also a retirement from posting  Take care and enjoy!

      Yeah. July and August. No migrant workers in plain sight.

      Wasn't sure, but I found it. looked like  you were cooking something on the grill.

      We were out near Taylors.  Couple boats and us and a pontoon and a pleasure boat cut right between us "sight seeing".  Blows my mind how they cut right between boats that are fairly close to each other fishing an area and cruise right through without a care in the world!  Del, I thought last year you figured out which place I had?
