Caught a few mahi along a weed line a few summers ago with an 8 wt. I needed a heavier rod though. Didn't know I was going offshore so I didn't have a sinking line, heavier rod or bigger flies with me. I caught the fish on size 2 Clousers. Without a sinking line, I couldn't get the fly down to t...

Shot a 22 pistol and a 22 short barreled rifle with suppressers. Wasn't as quiet as I thought it would be. Wasn't shooting subsonic ammo though. It was about the level of a 22 cb cap out of a rifle. ...
| Outdoor Board|| re: marlin 60 vs ruger 10/22 - TigerTaco on 2/21/14 at 10:55 pm|
I have both. If you are comparing stock rifles, I give the edge to the Ruger due to mags vs. tube feed. Personal preference. If you consider a bolt rifle, a CZ is better than both, build and accuracy wise. ...

If he needs more than two 4' sections, I'd go to Sabel Steel on Flannery and buy it. Two 4' sections at Home Depot will be about the same price as 20' from Sable. They can cut it to length too. ...

I've made dozens. Just don't do it to save money because you won't unless you build lots of rods. 10-15 years ago, you could save a good bit of money, especially on fly rods. The only ones I have made recently are rods with actions, lengths, components, etc. I couldn't find on the shelf. ...

Something will eventually show up on Craigslist, but you may need to be patient. I've purchased a few things through Craigslist but outboard sellers have been the worst. I drove out of town twice to look at motors and neither time could the seller start the motor despite assuring me the motors ran...

Anyone have a source for a whole 15-20 lbs. pig in the BR area? So far, I've found two places in town. At Scallan's, the price is right at $2.69 lb., but the smallest available is 30 lbs. Chris's Specialty Meats can get the size I need, but the price is $5.99/lb. Kartchner's in Krotz Springs sell...
