Hi Ralph -
Finally got registered on this forum. The activation email got hung up in spam filter. Finally fished it out.
I plan to take Dave up on his offer to tighten ferrules. I have two old Heddons that need help.
Glad to hear the outlook for fishing is improving. If you've had the wet weather like we've had in Paducah for the last week, you should be about ready to launch the ark.
Take care - see you in May!
