    DetailKYWood splitting this time of year to keep the lady happy. I also have a huge collection of yoyos. It’s the only thing I can claim to have mastered. I actually believe yoyos have kept my hand eye coordination high which in turn helps with shooting airguns. It also entertains my nieces and nephews immensely. They always ask when I come by if I brought a yoyo and to show them some ninja skills lol. No ninja but it is fun to be able to hold there attention without an iPad, even though they watch videos on YouTube and then ask can you do this trick and that. They think I’m the coolest because I can. How little they know! Google or YouTube professional yoyo to see how complex the tricks have become. Even have yoyos now that come off the string to perform tricks then catch with the string in air while still rotating and returning. My wife knows I have too many hobbies but she’s awesome and lets me have my fun! 

    Thanks for sharing mate!!

    Birdshot1423Just starting to fly fish. I am still learning I will fly fish for carp in a little creek. Any one got any tips please tell me.

    Well if the carp in your neck of the woods are like the ones around here HANG ON! We get some big carp around this area, and on the end of a fly pole they are real challenge to net
    May flies during April may and June do real well in my area any small floating fly will work. Good long trailing legs this Makes for some good practice… try to lay your fly inside small patches of open water between moss or whatever waterplants your fishing let it lie with some small twitches, to imitate a swimming bug . Surface roll your line sometimes to make your fly jump up and plop back into the water to create a water landing noise.
    Good luck

    Escape society, go deep into mountains, deserts. I prefer either Canada or Mexico. 
    Middle America is all politicized, privatized. Extreme hot, or cold below 0F. 

    Saw someone else likes picking rocks too!! Have a bunch of fossils from the south, volcanic rocks, obsidian, agates, different salt based crystals.  Northern area has different geology, picked odd green rocks think from the copper content. Some rough emerald, peridot crusted rocks. South has more abundant rocks, north seems to have rare beautiful rocks.

You must be one hell of an organised person to be able to do all those activities. I also have too many interests but do not have the…… discipline? to convert them into hobbies.

    My other hobby is off-road motorcycles. I started riding when I was 3 years old on a old 2 stroke ATC. Have learned on ATC, ATV and bikes and love them all. Just ordered a 125cc pitbike to mess around with around the farm and such. Got a 01 XR100 I’m going through and upgrading and my 06 TRX 400EX which all are just too fun.
