    I enjoy hunting and fishing.
    But because my wife doesn't hunt but loves fishing...I fish a lot and hunt a little. Screenshot_20200505-163355~2.png

    Cutie!

    If you hunt, you'll likely dig this mid 50's JM Marlin 30-30 I ran across that needed some help ...stripped it down, cleaned up the action, installed a new follower, refinished the wood, installed a recoil pad for my aging shoulder.
    Hunting days are over, still enjoy firearms.

    My wife has aged much better than me.

    Beautiful Marlin!
    I have a Ruger in .308...but I don't hunt with it anymore.
    I have bad neck issues... so I have become a handgun Hunter.
    I can go to the range weekly with absolutely no neck trouble.
    Got a pair of .44Mags.(only bring one on a hunt) Screenshot_20200505-190352~2.png
    Life is good.

    MTN biking for me, skateboarding for the surf reflexes. Lots of very good MTN bike trails, most of which are open.

    All of the fly-fishing stuff has me inspired. I grew up fishing but never got into fly-fishing, but we have good streams up in the Catskills that are beckoning. I raise brook trout in my science lab every year and release them into the watershed with kids... great way to learn about our water supply, native indicator species, aquatic macros, etc. I had a chance to do a quick little fly tying activity during a meeting once, and it seemed really meditative and fun.

    There are deals sometimes on fly fishing gear on Steep and Cheap that have had me interested but I have no idea where to start. Wormhole opening.

    outstanding pair of Ruger GP 100's! Punching Underwoods or Buffalo Bore through those cannons when on the hunt?

    Working on a Ruger right now, my wood carry SP101 .357 3"...Wolff spring kit, new grip and front sight...

    Almost GP100s...they are Redhawks in .44Mag...very similar looking.
    The GP and the SP are equally awesome guns.
    Enjoy.

    Those are the equivalent to two 9’6” single fin rhino chasers! Beautiful!

    with anything i dabble in i tend to fully dive in. Im always into american made and do it yourself and building something up my self weather it be a mountain bike, or golf clubs or anything i go all in. I like machined parts and do dads. fly fishing seems to be right up my ally. I think im gonna pick up a Abel Tr 4/5 reel and buy a Epic do it yourself rod so i can wrap it myself. I usually get more of a kick out of the process of building something in my garage than using it sometimes usually cause of my actual time i get to do these things. but i do plan on doing some more eastern sierras camping soon with the van so fly fishing seems a must abel-tr-fly-reel-collage.jpg 34135466_10160748724015727_1195223917405405184_n.jpg
