seriously, why does my text get cut off when I type on my iPhone lol

I tied my swap flies already, but they are kind of boring, so I think I'll do another set...something kind of classic.  Its just tough, full feather wings, 16 flies, thats 32 matched feathers for wings, 16 body hackles, 16 collar hackles, 16 GP crests for tails lol...lot of material!

I was looking at the same forum engine that NEF uses. It allows for a mobile web app and new skin etc. I think it's going to cost somewhere around $300 for the move. they had some sort of monthly payment plan of $30 dollars a month for the amount of users we have that sign in.

This forum software is free and I go through bluehost which costs around $175 a year for me.

I'll pitch in. So the NEF site costs $300 per month? That seems a bit steep, but I've never set up a forum so I have no reference.

No 200 a year.  If we switch to invision it'll be about 30 a month, but we'll have to delete pictures because they have storage limits

 :whistle :whistle :whistle

A massive 6/0 Durham Ranger...and a fly that is part of the missing linkage to a popular fly called the Black Dog.  This one is a pattern for the River Oykel, in the Northen Scottish Highlands (one that someday I really hope to go to, along with the Findhorn).
