Steel Fish and What’s on the Boards

A diseased looking fish at best. Some eye disease is present. In the background is the largest ongoing welding project known in the free world of our backyard. Note the typical wide angle distortion. The fish is actually three inches in length.

Anyone who knows me knows I have a soft spot for hard steel.

    Cindy – Yes, I would love a bag-o-spice and some pickles as well. Bring the bill when you are in town from Big A. this week. shannon

    We need a little something extra to get us through the winter doldrums until the redbuds bloom and the hybrids run. How about a monthly fly tying session? Meet a couple of guys for tying and beer. Maybe Fuzzy’s or Wine Safari?

    because i think it cut off the end of my last comment.

    hey, maybe someday the fly fishing bug (hah, bugs. hah, see i do know SOMETHING about fly fishing) will bite me.

    If the recipe wasn’t top secret (aka i don’t have access to it, and i actually signed a contract saying that i would not share trade secrets) i would totally give it to you. honestly the bag of spices just says a few ingredients and then “spices”. An easier feat would be snagging a bag of the spice mixture, which makes a whole bucket’s worth. although the longer they sit, the spicier they get.

  6. shannon says:

    Yes. Completely pointless. But, sometimes you do have a point, although never related to fly fishing. Can you give me the formula for making Spicy Pickles? I promise no one is looking. Is there a site for SP? shannon

  7. Cindy says:

    I guess it’s fitting that you’re giving the “blue steel” look since the fish is made of steel and all.

    I think you must have mis-typed something though, because i’m guessing the length of your four fingers across would be somewhere in the 2+ inch range and there is obviously a lot more fish than just three inches. maybe you meant width/height?

    haha leave it to me to post completely pointless comments!
