it's like I died and went to heaven. I found this place googling up some info on cuben, found Bill's pioneering work with that fabric, found an entire community of people into making their own gear, and now I find you all here in "fishing"...man this is awesome. I found a new home!
I'll be posting a lot in this forum but for now I'm enjoying reading all your posts.
For now I'll just say, the group I grew up hiking with is mostly people interested in attaining elevation, whilst my first choice has ALWAYS been streams and high lakes. Seems like people are either one or the other...I've ususally given in preferring to enjoy their company, but most of the time we've gone places where they can head of to summit a peak and I can head off to catch a bunch of trout.
Man oh man, is there anything finer than a fat brookie, or a hungry brown that hasn't had pressure for many moons because the ice just melted off?
