Winter Prototype....

What If?.....To the vise!


Those times when you just can't get a fish, or a rise, or a particular water out of your head?  You know them. A nagging thought...what would have worked? Or if something did work....why? And what would improve that? So as I sat thinking, it hit me. That's where it almost always begins...with a casual thought. 

To the vise!


So here I am again. A winter prototype. Do me a favor...give it a try.  If you get out before me, get one wet.  Let me know how it does for you. Send a pic if you have it, and offer up a name. 

My thoughts....
It would compliment an egg when the sucker spawn are adrift. The properties are all great as a hot-spot or trigger point on their own. Drop one off an egg, and give it a try. I'm thinkin' it will bring fish to hand.
