Gearing Up and Rigging Up / Re: Paddle search

I would give Dan at Headwaters in Lodi a call.  He is a wealth of information, dedicated to the sport, and supports NCKA.  He will be able to get you what you want.

Dan at Headwaters?   Never heard ofum...  But he is using my corryvreckan on this wave.


Funny.   I think the two of you have a lot in common

General Fishing Tips / Re: Terminal Tackle Swivel Question
« on: May 22, 2020, 03:07:16 PM »
For lakes,

I have started to use a snap (as small as I can find) for fly fishing.  My old eyes and thick fingers are a bad combo for tying and retying flies.  So far, I have not had a noticeable difference in action or bites.

I am starting to use a larger snap for crankbaits for the same reason plus it saves me a little bit of time. 

I avoid swivels as I am not trolling.  I cast and crank  :smt044

looks like the 3 in 1 transducer is $299 on the manufacturers website so total cost is around $1800 if I'm looking at this right.  Great units for someone looking in that price range

It would be a good ďmarketingĒ move if they removed it themselves. Do we know for certain that their first video was removed by Facebook?

Back to stats for a moment, a couple of relevant ones
40% of people making <$40,000/year lost there jobs in March
This sounds wrong. Seems like the only people still working like normal without interuption are the kids bagging groceries, working at fast food joints, etc...who I assume donít make very much $

agreed that grocery stores and fast food and gas stations are open.  But shopping all around the grocery stores are closed.  Restaurants are closed, except for a few that offer takeout (minimal staff).  Shopping malls are closed.  (Most retail is closed).  All of these employ low cost labor so unfortunately I can see that 40% is not an unreasonable number.  (4 out of 10 lost their job.  Waiters/dishwashers/bartenders/some cooks etc in the restaurant business, all sales associates at retail stores....)

Fingers crossed that enforcement and fines arenít stepped up now that our State is short on funds.  Time will tell.

Some positives are that countyís are starting to allow stores and restaurants to reopen. Also some beaches and launches are starting to open as well.

I appreciate your providing the stats as they are what they are. Good bad or ugly.

In order to keep with the gloominess of your post your third point should state ...unless it comes with skin cancer.

Placer county public health just had its variance request approved by the state. As of today restaurants can offer limited dine-in service.

Fingers crossed we donít have a giant spike in cases. (Weíre totally gonna have a spike in cases).

Fingers crossed your wrong.  (Your going to be right but hopeful that the spike is not a giant one.)  :smt002

I will not be punished for the sins of others.

Nor should you.  And nor should Alex...

As our government attempts to appeal to the lowest common denominator, someone needs to remind them "you can't fix stupid".




if you cant fix stupid (true) how do you keep the stupid from doing to much harm?


looks like we are slowly opening back up (Level 2) it will be good to see how things get to a new normal

Darwin usually eliminates the truly stupid. (Yet I am still here)😃

As far as when this all end is still a SWAG even for the scientists which is unsettling for me.  If this virus is like the flu then I see it becoming an annual flu shot.  Currently the majority of what science is reporting is this is a moving target so a one time vaccination is not going to be the answer.

The part of all this stages and reopening is that it just feels like our government treats us if we are toddlers and need constant hand holding and direction on what we can and canít do. If they treat us as adults and respect our intelligence then this would be more acceptable. I get that at the onset and early stages of this shutting down was the right thing to do. We should not be at that same place now.


Because a LOT of adults behave like spoiled ROTTEN toddlers...

Just like at home and in grade school, those entrusted with our safety must govern to the least common denominator. Sure, your'e not an idiot but the guy that's taking selfies of himself in front of the police station showing off his piece and using #felonlifestylz might need more guidance than yourself (and theres no realistic way to vet the intelligence and responsibility of every citizen, *china is the exception)[size=78%].[/size]
If you think that mr #felonlifestylz is such a small fraction of the population he can be ignored.... well, rose glasses are so nice.

No rose glasses as I am reminded of this every time I shop at a Wal-Mart, or Target or Lowes or just about every grocery store these days.  Hard to put a percentage on it, but the lack of physical distancing, etc I would think would lead to the spread of the virus.
