What to read?

For those of You out there who like to read...

Here are a few of my all time favorite books. I've read them all many times and learn something new from them each time I re-read them. :-) Have you read any of them yet? They are all very different but each one has lots and lots of cool stuff to teach us. So, if You are into learning mode, Dig up any one of these little Treasures and you'll be in for a treat...

Stay Alive In The Woods - Angier

Illusions, By Bach

Owl Hooters - Von Meuller

The Last Canadian - Hauntingly Realistic...

Reading good stuff is good for us. Gives us a chance to slow down a little and explore the other worlds around us. Many times we can learn a lot from a real good book. I've learned plenty from this little foursome. Perhaps You will too?

more later...

More Spring Plants...

Here's a few more pics taken with my trusty little Optio, of some spring plants. Samples were taken into my kitchen and utilized with reverence and gratitude...

Just click the link to the Nature set when you get there...

Doctored Lures...

So did I ever mention that I liked to tweak fishing lures before? :-)

Well. fact is, I do. I love it. Here's a set of pics to show new angles covered to make these lures perform better. Various things are done to various lures to get them to catch MORE fish for me, under the conditions that I fish, at least. It somehow feels better to catch a fish on one of my tweaked lures than it does to catch 'em on a box stock, lure. Maybe it's just me, but thousands of fly-fishermen would probably understand where I'm comin' from with this...

That's it, that's all.
