2/22/19 I've got to stop
it! Seeing new terrific holographic lure tape
has me dreaming of my 1st trip of 2019. The
new brilliantly awesome A.I. pattern will debut next
week and comes with a reel-story that goes back to
later 1970s. Rich Lowenthal, then owner of the
Frankfort, MI's Tackle Box gave me a free George
Richey's Green Sparkle Fly to try. Guess Rich
knew I was a good customer and would be back to buy
more after it swimming.
My first impression of George's Sparkle Fly clear
Mylar creation was less than lackluster. That
changed on a dime once the Kings beat on his fly
like a red-headed stepchild. Man, this fly was
hot and became a "go to" mainstay in my arsenal.
And yes, Rich L. was right, I came back and bought a
bunch more. .....to be continued.
2/21/20 Most excellent
news! Spring 2019 happens 27 days from now on
3/20/19. Our long wait for the 2019 big water
season is on the downhill side. Late March
could be the first Lk. MI trip hoping for a few good
eating Brown Trout.
Posted a photo from the drone camera in a wide 16 by 9
format that's the same as HD movie video. The
rest of the pics in the left border, "Photo of the
Day" column are in 3 by 4 that's a lot more similar
to old 35mm film cameras.

The drone photo came out amazingly clear with a
first-rate depth of field. Too good as a
matter of fact, shown by where the editing smudges
are to protect customer privacy on a tackle shop
order. To have good focus short and far is a
good thing that will be used to look straight down
in Lk. MI to see bait.
2/20/19 Posted an
updated pic to explain some of the features on our
new water drone. There's a lot going on in
this piece of technology. Being a raw newbie,
trying to describe all the drone functions is beyond
my pay grade.
Do know, attempting to learn how to run it could
only be accomplished when we're not extra busy
kicking tackle orders out the door.
I've spent about 20 hours of intense hands-on
experience getting comfortable with this camera
carrying water bird. Do know, hearing, or
saying: "deploy the drone" will have shades of Star
Trek and Star Wars dialog overtones.
2/19/19 1st video and
camera photos with our new drone was a rousing
success. Photos are crystal clear. 1080i
video test footage rivals the newer GoPro 6 Black
that I own.
Feel like this expense was more than justified from
the initial test. Will post a drone camera
test photo soon that will be edited slightly to
smudge out a shop tackle order for obvious customer
cam looking at controller
Learning to fly this over the water will show us a
heretofore never before seen bird's eye view that
encompasses all we do. Piloting skills will be
a major challenge. But one I'm more than up
for. This is a new vista for us to conquer and
that's gonna be fun!
