The wind shifted overnight, and the sky over our house turned yellow. It's the smoke from the bushfires.

@neph93 we're about 40 or 50 km away from the nearest fire, and they don't seem to be spreading this way. I'm not too worried, but I am keeping an eye on the websites.

And if they get closer I'll have to repaint the house so it matches the orange, red, or black skies. :o

The worst thing is the smoke. I'm asthmatic and it's disagreeing with me.

The photo of @Giles fly over on the Crafts thread reminded me of this article on my grandfather from this past summer.  He's a custom rod builder who also repairs rods and ties flies.

His workshop looks like something out of a movie.

Great story @BloodnThunder and thanks for sharing your grandpa’s cool hobby.

Thanks @motojobobo.  He has an endless wealth of great hunting and fishing stories.

One of my favorites was from maybe ten years ago.  He was out hunting alone somewhere in the middle of nowhere Eastern Washington.  He had a heart attack.  Crawled to the person's house whose land he was hunting on (he's befriended just about everyone in the area so there a ton of ranches that are private land with owners who allow him to hunt it) and had them call 911.  He was medevaced out.  My grandma made him get his first cell phone after that.  He's 86 now and still goes out hunting alone.  Animal.

I'm sure we all saw some of the Selvedge Run photos with FW teasers the past few days.  Really excited to see there is another check pattern similar to the SNO from this past season but in black/yellow (might be indigo/yellow).

Closed or a re-brand? They’re linking to this Marrkt. I’m not familiar with any of them mind, but while aspects of this area of the industry are booming there seems to be a slimming down of the actors and a change in focus. Inevitable really.

Me mate just stopped by for lunch... Always a treat... Three samples of 2 fab whiskeys and one rum...

He's been getting into boots and higher quality jeans as of lately, and it was fun geeking out over brands and lasts and all that jazz... He especially loved me natty CXL Vibergs... He read all about that... So cute  :D
