    Thanks for the well-wishes and comments on my little excursion. I had a fantastic time walking around the old logging town and talking to locals about its history. The fishing was fun, the food was excellent, and the people were so nice. My wife and I decided we need to find more little towns to spend time in and explore. Vacations don't always have to be about thrills and entertainment, sometimes education and relaxation are just what the soul needs.

    A lovely Rainbow you caught, and on a fly makes it even more respectable.
    I mostly fish the Sierra Nevada streams in California, like the Carson River, Walker River, American River, and Sacramento River. It's always fly fishing, catch and release. I also take a pilgrimage every couple of years to the Madison River in Montana, Fly Fishing Mecca. :cool: :thumbsup:

    Jack, I really enjoyed ALL of your pictures from your hike. :cool: :thumbsup:

    I'm back from my trip, it was wonderful and relaxing.
    I think I did an okay job of keeping up with the Guardian thread, even given the crappy mountain wifi and limited time at the computer. I had you guys on my mind as I walked around town and visited shops and museums. I even picked up this little souvenir so I could post a picture of it...


    And as I leave my vacation adventures behind me, I'll post one more picture from down by the river...

    Thank you GT.

    Striking photo of Valley Jack!

    Beautiful scenery shots Jack. Looks like you had a great walk-a-bout.

    Thank you sir.

    Wow that is a beautiful heavenly repast! :eek:

    Don't let Rayse see that Jack. He'll have you making a voodoo mask out of it. :D

    Missed a few pages while I was hand-stitching this hat, but I think it was worth it!


    Okay, I didn't hand-stitch the hat.

    Thanks, GT! I had to put it far enough into the future so that folks would forget by then if I get it wrong. ;)

    Looks like a fantastic day, my friend. Thanks for taking us all along!

    Woah. A lot of coincidences indeed. I haven't tried that one, but I'll have to keep an eye out for it. Should be easy enough to find here.

    So true, Jack. I've had many an initial evaluation changed once I put a knife to actual use.

    Thanks for that, Dylan. I'm glad you enjoyed it. I really enjoyed your chip butty post, too. Thank you for that, too. Nice to get a practical review of the Waynorth lambsfoot. :thumbsup:

    Fascinating indeed. I'd also love to hear about how the Lambshank is faring. I noticed a patina on it the last time he showed it, so I suspect it hasn't been lazing about in a drawer. :)

    Thank you! The first caption was "The Three Amigos", but I thought they looked a bit too serious for that. ;)

    Amen. Glad you had a great time. Welcome back!

    It turned out great!

    I was about to say the same thing! I certainly don't want to start anything, but I will have one post this weekend with appropriate lambsfoot content. :)

    Good looking knife, Paul, and an even better looking pup! :D That's a nice outdoor space you've got there, too; great place to sit and enjoy a nice cigar while CE'ing and CF'ing that Lambsfoot. :cool: :thumbsup:

    Good Morning Guardians, Back in our yard doing a myriad of chores with my trust friend Hartshead. Going to start off early today before it gets too hot here in coastal southern NC.
