    Hi Paul, Thanks for the comment on the photo. Actually, it's not a mission at all. It was a residence of the Spanish (Mexican) military commander of the presidio in Old Town San Diego. His name was Jose Maria De Estudillo. It's called Casa De Estudillo. We went to old town for breakfast on Saturday morning, then walked around the shops, and toured the presidio, the plaza and a few other historic landmarks. Jim

    It is a leap of faith, but this is a pretty good bunch. Not tons of risk here.

    You are right. I did misunderstand. I think you are OK with most of the members of the board. The ones I have dealt with are very honest and strait up sorts. I would hesitate with some of the guys that have joined up since the first of the year just because I don't know them yet. Most of the old timers I would send a rod to on approval with no deposit or anything. The board operates on trust. Most of these guys understand that if they were to violate a person's trust, they would be quickly shunned.

    I haven't, either. There was a rod swap this last fall and they used a set of components that totaled a little less than $30. You might use that set of components. Search for "Rod Swap" and see what you come up with. Everyone in the swap used the same set of components. The only addition allowed was to ferrule the rod. Thread choice and color was yours and how you built it was up to you. There was quite a variety out of that same set of goodies.

    Paul, I don't know who you are swapping with. Only caveat I'd have is if the person is new to the board. I sometimes get suspicious when people sign up and just use the for sale/trade BB and nothing else. I have received some decent items from folks here and try to pass that character trait on when buying or selling. For the most part we're a good bunch of folks here. Good luck on the deal. Jim

    Did you receive my note? Please let me know. I'm really having a hard time with this and need to know what I can do to change it. I'm so sorry.

    Hi Paul, Sorry to hear about the surgery. Hope you are getting around better soon.
    Thanks for the invite to be your pal. I'm honored.
    It has cooled down to 104 today with about 20% humidity. I went out to my friend's house to put a headliner in a '55 chevy. It was kind of like sitting in a sauna. I got it in but not finished. I'll do that when we get back from our trip.
    Yeppers. We are leaving tomorrow afternoon for a 3 day 4 night mountain trip to Lee Vining, CA. There are 15 of us so them fishies better look out. I'll post a report with photos in the Community forum as well as a fishing report. Best regards. Jim

    PRM, hey thanks for posting to Fears about rod building. I appreciate the advise and knowledge. I am learning so much and I have only been on this board a couple of days.
