From Chapter 2:

"Several of the Union and Confederate officers were flyfishers. The real cause of the Battle of Gettysburg was to stop Confederate spot-burning of our limestoners."

I'm gonna need someone to do the artwork in the book - interested?

Seriously - ever read anything about the Battle of the Little Bighorn? I've heard stories about the reason Custer's support was late in arriving was that the general involved was fishing! Makes sense - can't miss a good hatch.

Yes, this would have been General Crook who, after the Battle of the Rosebud, had a great time catching cutthroats in the nearby creeks. Supposedly, one staff officer caught over 140 fish, mainly by fly fishing or using hoppers for bait. This fishing expedition went on while Custer was getting whipped.

I suspect some Rebs may have done some spot burning on a local limestoner or two during the G-burg campaign (although I haven't seen a source for this). Lee's camp at Chambersburg before the battle was at Messermith's Woods which, at the time, was clustered along Falling Springs Creek in what is today the DHALO section. Maybe the Rebs fattened up on some of those brookies.

Another warning about DEET. It breaks down 2 part thread finish on most fishing rods. I've never experienced this first hand but I heard about it on on the rod building forum. SO BEWARE!!!

I dislike Bugspray... and Sunblock too. However if I do get a tick after a thorough body search i use this http://www.tickkey.com/ It works well on removing the nasties. and in the rare cases when my dogs get them - it works especially well.

My Mother just gave me a tick key last week that she picked up at Cabelas. I hope I never have to use it but I'm sure I will. Fits nicely on key ring.

If it were a little bigger diameter and could open beer bottles, THAN you'd have something!

A haircut might help as well.....If the ticks do manage to infiltrate your chemical defenses the probability of finding them increases greatly when you have less hair you have to search!!!!!! Just sayin :)

Are you suggesting I shave my back?

(is my reel in, or should I not bother stopping in this afternoon?)

I found a tick the other day embedded on me after sml.game hunting. I dont ever remember getting any while fishing with waders on and stream fishing. To the poster wha said a tick needs to on you for atleast 24 hours to give you Lyme's....I dont agree,if it is embedded and engorged I think you can get it.
