Every single drowner I use is the type he made a tutorial for. Cable with two camlocks to make it adjustable. RIP Pskinny

TSAREVNA was her screen name here, she hasn't been on in two years though..

Newt I am sorry to hear about Ed.

Remember the last time you and I trapped together Ed was with us. I met you and Ed in the Wal Mart parking lot and I got out wearing a brand spanking new green Wrangler shirt with pearl snaps that I had just bought from Tractor Supply. I remember scaring the crap out of both of you as you thought I was the game warden when I drove up. You guys picked on me as being the cleanest best dressed trapper you have ever trapped with that day.

Newt you and I have not talked in a very long time. I should have reached out to you long ago and for that I am sorry I have not been the friend I should have been. I let life and two family illnesses and deaths get in the way and for that I am sorry. I hope to see you again soon. I was planning on going to the NC convention this year just to see you but know I understand you will not be here this year. Take care buddy. See you soon. Mike

Talk about a shock reading this. Looked for Scott and Ed at the Ohio trappers convention over the weekend. wondered why they were not set up.

Sorry for the loss of a good friend Newt. I'll keep all his family and friends in prayer.

Rest in peace PSkinny

Though we never met in person, Ed was a valued contributor back in the day shortly after Tman started as a trapping forum.

RIP old friend. Show your new friends up there how to "getterdone." Your wit and special talents shared down here will be missed, but never forgotten.

Shalom,

Jonathan
