  • Kokanee Festival

    Mrs.Trout and I went to Lake Tahoe yesterday for the Kokanee festival...



    it's that time of year when the kokanee salmon swim up stream to spawn...





    a kokanee is a fresh water salmon and their life cycle is 2 years.



    the fish up top is a cut throat trout...

    the plan was to meet up with some Friends at the festival and then drive out to their favorite little lake for a picknick....



    they said the road was a little rough but you couldn't beat the senery...



    this is looking out over the Nevada side of the sierra mountains.



    what goes up must go down...



    Lake Tahoe is a 3 1/2 hour dive one way so it was a good 14 hour day...

      When my husband & I lived in SF we visited Lake Tahoe several times and always enjoyed the drive around the lake. Can you still see a dinner plate at the bottom of the lake? (I think that was how they determined how clear the water is!)

          Hi Trout - beautiful scenery and great shots of the fish. Trips out don't come much better than this. Thanks for sharing the trip with us.

          I hope that was a typo and not the time it took to find sbarron01's plate!!!

            the motto for lake Tahoe is "Keep it Blue" and at the festival we did see the "now and then" pictures of the plate...

                What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                The bags seem easier on the surface.
                But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

                Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

                As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...

                I would make the shed 1" less than the size permits are required for. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH SPACE....

                I shrink wrap all my puzzles. It is the best method I have found. I do not use a cardboard backer as some do. I use shrink wrap bags that I get from Amazon or Ebay. 8" x 12" will fit 95% of the puzzles I make.

                To use the bags you will need a sealer. I have one very similar...
