Here is a pic aboard my father-in-law's scalloper the Noreen in 1960 on a calm winters day. I overlayed a pic of a three feather flatwing called the Abbie V. There is certainly a broad range of "fishing" experiences.

Many thanks, John.

The CDC is an interesting touch...

Thanks Doc, I have been doing some "hollower" wings lately to allow "inner" collars of a contrasting color and shorter than the outer collar or cheek.

Now I know why you were buying all those saddles at the Moonie booth. Nice job. Can't wait to see the Pink grizzly creation.
