Make Killer Foam Poppers from Flip-Flops

Foam poppers are deadly bass and panfish baits. For general duty, use an 8- to 8 ½-foot, 5-weight outfit with floating line and a one-piece tapered leader. Target grass edges, docks, gaps in lily pad fields, and pockets shaded by overhanging limbs. Vary your popper retrieves until you determine what triggers the fish. Slow retrieves with long pauses work best in hot or cold weather. During moderate conditions, daybreak and dusk bring active feeding periods, with panfish often blasting poppers the second they hit the water. 1. Find a Flip-Flop read more

Stocking Trout Is An Icy Business This Year

Fishermen hooking trout on opening day April 19 will have no idea what it took to make that possible. The ice this year was so thick, chainsaws were needed to cut though and open holes for trout stocking in Connecticut waters. Tim Barry, who heads the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection's trout stocking program, said, "In my 30 years with the department, I've never seen conditions like this." "All the lakes were stocked through the ice," Barry added. "It was very difficut Some mornings were so frigid, stocking had to be suspended for fear the fish would suffer cold shock and die. Because of delays caused by the prolonged cold, Barry said, it will take a "herculean effort" to reach the DEEP's goal of stocking 100 lakes and ponds and 200 rivers and streams before lines hit the water next month. "I think we'll get all of the lakes done and the big rivers – like the Farmington and the Salmon – but I'm not sure if we'll get to all of the streams," Barry said. He said he was putting in a request to allow stocking crews to work weekends in advance of opening day. The department is also short two trucks, which could mean additional delays. The DEEP begins spring trout stocking at the end of February, releasing 650,000 fish into state waters. In this two-stage process, fish are released prior to opening day, and "in season" from opening day until the end of May. The three species of trout -- brown, brook and rainbow -- come from state hatcheries in Kensington and Burlington and the Quinebaug State Hatchery in Plainville. To stock lakes when the water is open, trucks just back up and release the trout. However, when the water is iced over, the fish have to be transferred into holding tanks and hauled onto the frozen surface. Then, crews with power augurs and chainsaws open holes for release. This extra work has delayed stream stocking, Barry said. Also, stocking had to be suspended some days because of the intense cold. "Some mornings it was hovering around zero degrees, and because of safety concerns, we made a decision not to go out," he said.,0,4814134.story

Here's what Congress advised for the use of the U.S. flag in a joint resolution dated June 22, 1942. The flag of the United States is the emblem of our identity as a separate nation, which the United States of America has been for more than 200 years. Therefore, citizens should stand at attention and salute when their flag is passing in a parade or being hoisted or lowered. The custom is to display the flag only from sunrise to sunset on flagstaffs in the open, but it may be displayed at night upon special occasions to produce a patriotic effect. When the flag is hung vertically on a wall, window or door the Union (blue) should be to the observer's left. When the flag is hung either horizontally or vertically against a wall, the Union (blue field) should be to the observer's left. The flag should be hoisted briskly and lowered ceremoniously. It should not be displayed on days when the weather is inclement. It should be displayed, weather permitting, on all holidays: New Year's Day; Inauguration Day; Lincoln's Birthday; Washington's Birthday; Armed Forces Day; Easter Sunday; Mother's Day; Memorial Day (half-staff until noon); Flag Day; Independence Day; Labor Day; Constitution Day; Columbus Day; Veterans Day; Thanksgiving; Christmas; and state holidays and admission days. It should be displayed at every public institution and in or near every polling place on election days, and at schoolhouses during school days. In a procession the flag is to the right of another flag or, if in a line of other flags, in front of the center of that line. The flag should not be displayed on a float except from a staff, nor draped over the hood, top, sides, or back of a vehicle. When the flag is displayed on a vehicle, the staff should be fixed firmly to the chassis. No other flag should be placed above the flag of the United States or, if on the same level, to its right. The United Nations flag may not be displayed above or in a position of superior prominence to the United States flag except at United Nations Headquarters. The flag displayed with another against a wall, from crossed staffs, should be on the right (the flag's own right), and its staff should be in front of the other staff. It should be at the center and the highest point when displayed with a group of state flags. When flags of states, cities, etc., are flown on the same halyard, the United States flag should be at the peak. When flags of two or more nations are displayed, they are to be flown from separate staffs of the same height, and the flag of the United States should be hoisted first and lowered last. When displayed from a staff projecting from a building, the union [upper inner corner] should be at the peak of the staff. When it is displayed otherwise than by being flown from a staff, it should be displayed flat, whether indoors or out; or so suspended that its folds fall as freely as though the flag were staffed. When displayed over a street, it should be suspended vertically with the union to the north in an east and west street, or to the east in a north and south street. On a platform, it should be above and behind the speaker, with the union uppermost and to the observer's left. When displayed from a staff in a church or auditorium, the flag should occupy the position of honor and be placed at the speaker's right as he faces the audience. When flown at half-staff, the flag should be first hoisted to the peak for an instant and then lowered to half-staff position. It should again be raised to the peak before it is lowered for the day. Half-staff is one-half the distance between the top and bottom of the staff. The flag must be flown at half-staff on all buildings on the death of any officer listed below, for the period indicated: For the President or a former President: 30 days from the date of death. For the Vice President, the Chief Justice or a retired Chief Justice of the United States, or the Speaker of the House of Representatives: 10 days from the day of death. For an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, a member of the Cabinet, a former Vice President, the President pro tempore of the Senate, the Majority Leader of the House of Representatives, the Minority Leader of the House of Representatives: From the day of death until interment. For a United States Senator, Representative, Delegate, or the Resident Commissioner from the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico: the flag should be flown in the metropolitan area of the District of Columbia, on the day of death and on the following day; in the state, congressional district, territory, or commonwealth of such Senator, Representative, Delegate, or Commissioner, from the day of death until interment. For a Governor: Within the state, territory, or possession, from the day of death until interment. When the flag is used to cover a casket, the union should be at the head and over the left shoulder. The flag should not be dipped to any person or thing. It should never be displayed with the union down, save as a signal of dire distress. It should never touch anything beneath it, such as the ground, the floor, water, or merchandise. It should never be carried flat or horizontally, but always aloft and free. It should never be fastened, displayed, used, or stored so that it might be easily torn, soiled, or damaged in any way. It should never be used as covering for a ceiling. It should never have anything placed on it. The flag should never be used for any advertising purpose, nor embroidered on cushions or handkerchiefs, printed on paper napkins or boxes, nor used as any portion of a costume. When the flag is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem, it should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning.
