Well the computer had an upgrade and know I can post.For the last week its been every thing from pouring to painting many bake cycles and now one more tip dip for the chart yellow red head. Then its the first clear coat. Then Tails.This year looks like no travel shut down ,so i booked our room this year for the 5 day longweekend stay. There is one pile of darts on holders on top of the wood furnace baking away.2.5 months away from Shad time.

Well 62 sleeps till Shad time in NS. All darts second coat of clear coat today:) Two day of slow baking then done. even recoated 15 specials I made up for myself and friends:cool:. Was just talking to a friend who fish Shad with me ,said he may be layed up the first weeks. I reminided him of a certain person who had a major right shoulder surgery and two weeks later was shad fishing left handed{trained before season to fish left handed;}.Couldn't lift my right hand to my face but could turn the reel handle.:giggle: Ps I could do more trick cast left handed and that was noticed big time .Next project will be to clean the Rod reels and regrease. SOS pad and a lite scrub will make those cook handles look new.
