They fasten red (crimson red) wool around a hook, and fix onto the wool two feathers which grow under a cockís wattles, and which in colour are like wax.

Hello JAD,

"Matt you and I have only meet once, so which rod are you going to give me .I hope it"s a Sage."

Huh?? What's this about giving you a rod?? Was I FUI (fishing under the influence)at the time I said that?

Where did we meet that one time? On the LJ? Please refresh my memory. Do you want to do a float in 2011?

Matt
You made me laugh, I have the same problem with gorgeous women but never with fishing pals. Ya on the j I looked over and said your Matt and I thought your jaw would fall off. You said do I know you, we talked about fishing the J.

About the float that's a long drive for me, I'm thinking about taking the small trailer and float boats picking up our buddy Louis and heading up to the Big D , If we do we will be sure to contact you.

Best
John

Hi John,

"I looked over and said your Matt and I thought your jaw would fall off."

Yes, I remember now, I was really surprised when you called me by name.
I just thought you recognized me because I'm such a well known fly fisher!

Louis has my cell # I think. If not PM me and I'll send it to you. Most of the time I'm up there Tuesday - Thursday in May and June.
