    What's for dinner tonight?

    Wow,looks amazing. I am excited to see so many people are using asparagus as it is now in season. I just had my first last night,but i didn't take a pic. Good stuff on here for sure.

    That is the smoke chamber of my masonry heater i built in my house last year. Its main job is heating,but you can cook in it when the fire has died down. My father,brother and nephew are visiting from Germany and we had a pizza party. We made almost ten different ones. Temperature in the heater was probably around 800F. I have an infrared thermometer,but those only read surface temps,and the bricks were at 500 F.

    Sharpening chainsaw

    I sharpen my chains until they start loosing teeth altogether and look more like the locals,hehehe. By then they drift a little,also like the locals. Also,i am a late bloomer and didn't get my first chainsaw until i was 26. Heck,i didn't start hunting until i was 36.

    That looks awesome. You sure eat well,that is good to see. I love food as well,here is my birthday dinner. It was delicious. The trout tasted amazing,and we managed to only eat half of it. It wasn't easy to cook in the oven under the broiler,it barely fit the baking sheet!

    You could use 1 tsp arrowroot dissolved in 1/2 cup of water to add to the sauce,it is a nice thickening agent. If the sauce is still not thick enough,repeat...

    Live From The Water 2019 Edition

    scuds i am not sure about,but lots of insects and crayfish for sure. The river has the best hatches in this area. It is a neat ecosystem,the schenevus flows into the susquehanna,and a couple of good sized creeks feed the schenevus along its way,lots of water and spawning ground.

    Live From The Water 2019 Edition

    My Buddy and I floated the Schenevus Creek today with a canoe and i got this slammer Brown,my biggest ever out of a creek. He hit a cp swing spinning lure and measured 22". The water was just a little cloudy and just high enough for us not to scrape bottom in the shallow broad riffles. The meat on the fish is super pink,he either was a native or stocked a few years ago,but the creek has plenty of natural reproduction.
