Re: Attachment on yo yo fishing reel?

I didn't put much thought into it, the yo-yo was pre-strung with the smallest bank line.

Re: Birds nests

I'll have to investigate the hummingbird nest I found the other day, didn't seem like much mud at all, something that discouraged me from using them in the past.

Re: Hello from N.E .TX.

Welcome! Glad to see you made it here! While we may not be as active as BCUSA, this is the place for Texas events and specific stuff.

That looks like a Red Yeti Fire Snake, he sells them on BCUSA, along with a newer dragon he's been making. I like the red eye addition!
