Wee lad at the fishery mad into fishing and wildlife bugs and all sorts. Came up with a bucket of goodies. Newts dragonfly nymphs, few different types of caddis and one of these things. He calls them trumpet bums. Im oretty sure thats not their real name :grin: what the hell is it ?

Let me ask you one question. Is your money that good. Will it buy you forgiveness. Do you think that it could. I think you will find When your death takes its toll All the money you made Will never buy back your soul.
