    I knew it as soon as I seen the picture.. I’m glad it is working out for you. You will get many years use out of it. Your air brushing looks great, keep up the good work.

    Not necessarily bigger but stronger. Get some 4x strength.

    Come Feb or so better take him to Black Lake for sturgeon..
    Wkll need a shanty but some are available for rent.

    About 16 yrs ago wife and I sat on Black for 8 hrs. Didnt see squat-no minnow, crawdad-nothing.
    At the end she said "we could have gone to a motel for the day." I said "we had a large ACd pool, piped in music (radio), stove to cook lunch on, what more do you want?"
