After breaking my ancient vise last fall, I stopped tying. Finally broke down, and bought a new vise.
BIG thanks to Mike at Mossy's. Can't say enough good things about Mike and his store. He hooked me up with a Peak rotary. The last one he had, gave me the one off the counter, even threw in some of the extras at no cost to me.
I've been playing around, I'm really rusty and it shows. I was intrigued by the squidro pattern and I've done up a few that I think will get some big Parks hwy 'bows excited.
I'm gonna swing something like this tomorrow and see what happens. Looks good in the tub, casts like a dream, colors are right, movement is awesome. Strip and Rip and hold on tight. Should be fun.
