    Spencer that's a BEAUTIFUL woodie...it's been a lot of fun watching you progress over these last two years. All your hard work is paying off!

    Also the crawfish report came out today and they say it's going to be a banner season ;)

    Yes it's plain scotch tape. I only use it because it's see through allowing to keep an eye on the pocket feathers.
