      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 .

Mono Backing on Reels

Recommended Posts

BigWadeS

I have read a lot about putting a mono backing on your reel and then a shorter amount of flourocarbon/ppro with that. What is the best way to attach the two each other? I have no idea how to or what the best knot should be for this...

Thanks,

A uni-knot is pretty strong and easy to learn to tie. a drawing will show better but; spiral the to lines together 8-10 times maybe less not sure whats stronger. then split the 2 lines in the middle, and bring boths tags through the hole it made when you split lines. you'll figure something out. test 'er out

aka back-to-back uni knot. Works great. If you Google it, you should be able to find it. I think Power Pro even comes with a flyer that shows it.

Agree with the above posts. I use a surgeons knot because it is easier for me to tie. Never have had any problems when I tie it correctly and that is relativly easy.

If you have trouble with tieing the Uni, give the Surgeons a try.

Again, do a google. There are several very good sites which will have pix to walk you through many kinds of knots.
