And a fun time was had by all...

Had a great time today. A gentleman from PaleoPlanet came over to learn a little more about building arrows. Yotman on PaleoPlanet, Curtis in real life, seemed to have a good time visiting. I was in the middle of making some arrows for Richard Saffold so Curtis got to see a little of the process and get a lot of questions answered.
You know, all the information is out there on the web and in books and magazines but for the most part it’s spread all over the countryside and it can really take some time getting it all together. It’s not always easy to decipher terms or determine what tools are needed and what tools are just nice to have.
Fayme took a couple pictures today but nothing planned or with any particular purpose. Unfortunately, Curtis isn’t even in them, just my grey head and fat fingers.

Funny how small the world is sometimes. Turns out that Curtis is a current member of a predator hunting club that I was very active in a number of years ago. It was great to hear some familiar names and find that we had so much in common.

Actually I had a purpose. I wanted Curtis to be able to look at this and find the glue bottle to make his job easier, and also show the fletching jig in case he forgot later how it was put together. Sorry I expected you to be a mindreader.
