    shaving not on a regular basis

    For a while my job required me to shave daily, and I was getting good at getting a good close shave with my gold dollar. Now I don't shave everyday due to time constraints and other factors. So now I shave maybe twice a week. That makes for a rough shave due to the longer hair. Once I get that...

    proraso red on the way!

    So it is a "croap" I had been thinking about getting a cream, but wanted to stick with I already knew, soap. I got the email that it has shipped so I will hopefully have a report on the first go in a few days. Curious to see how it differs from the van der hagen soap. From everything I have...

    Who ties Their Own Fishing Flies?

    A couple of flies I tied for a competition for a tenkara site I follow. They are tied in hand, no vise. SO maybe not as pretty as I like, but i figure the fish should enjoy them!

    Fly Fishing

    There is a whole lot that could be suggested, but what kind of fish will you be pursuing and in what kind of environment? Generally speaking a 6wt rod is a good middle ground rod that can catch most everything that swims in cold or warm water, but if you have something specific in mind then a...

    a question of taste?

    Well I posted this about just before I headed to bed. Sorry for the late reply, I am using vanderhagen soap. I will start adding a bit more water and see how that goes. I did get a good fluffy lather this morning by going a bit longer with the brush so by adding that bit more water I should get...

    a question of taste?

    So the question is this. I have a been using shaving soap and going good, but it lacks the slickness(?) that I like. Should I use a cream or maybe add some oils? What are y'alls thoughts on such things? Thanks ahead of time, HOSS

    I am getting spoiled

    I had been looking, for quite a while, for a pen that drew a nice clean dark line. I settled on a gel pen and that was ok, but still not quite what I was looking for. Then I got a pilot metro and I have found what I have been looking for all long. I am enjoying the heck out of it too. I seem to...
