Is that how you operate as well?  Are your corrections done in a different color or itallics?  I think itallics would make for easier reading so that is what I will do. No, never had to do that. As far as I can recall I've never been challenged for making changes to a post after the fact. I have be...

...I do not have any different privileges in regards to the time allowed to make edits to a post on this forum than you do.


As a moderator I think you do Gordy. Maybe you could put your edits in another colour, or as italics?

It's clearly your party but, just because you can make a decision, or even that you should make a decision, doesn't mean that the decision you ultimately make is automatically a good one. Further to that Lasse is one of the good guys IMO and you can put me on "waiting authorisation" too until you d...

I don't know if that is someone's idea of a joke, but you have to spell A i r f l o with spaces in order to prevent that "barstool" substitution. Gordy Due to an old and very bitter argument between members of this board and the owner of barstool (over laws of physics as it happens) he threatened l...

The first company to apply a nano-sized particle to rod building used it in their marketing far more than the rods. As far as I could find out (and in this case I had it confirmed) the nano particles were in the paint/varnish on the blank. To the best of my knowledge the addition of those particles...

Hi Marc The way Ward tells it, traditional double spey is an oval cast. The cast we know, where most of the setting up and all the change of direction take place with the line on the water, only appeared with glass or carbon rods - that puts it in the 1960s and into early 70s. I think, if they were...

I believe that this type of anchor became established via the Doublespey cast around the advent time of either glass rods or graphite rods. Prior to that time, I believe that the inherent slow recovery and "heavy" tip weight of rods constructed of greenheart and bamboo combined to allow the use of ...
