Re: What hobbies do you have?

I fly-fish, collect bamboo and fiberglass rods and turn of the century fly reels, hunt, shoot trap, collect first editions and vintage photographs, film cameras, records and briar pipes. I'm a writer and only use typewriters. I read and correspond obsessively.

Re: What hobbies do you have?

Fly fishing, bamboo rods...Nice! I haven't been fly fishing since my college days. I need to get back into that. I did manage to get out with my dad this summer, and we saw a HUGE (24") brown trout in a deep pool in an otherwise small creek that nobody ever goes too (kind of our secret)  Didn't catch it. It was easily spooked.

My other hobbies include:
• photography and a modest collection of film and digital cameras ranging from compact point and shoot digitals on up to a 4x5 view camera. My latest acquisition is a 1950s Rolleiflex. I just processed some rolls of film from it, and they came out nicely.

• music - both listening and playing. I have a modest, but very decent Hi Fi set up with a couple vintage turntables. I also have a small collection of electric and acoustic guitars, one outstanding Fender P bass and a couple vintage drum kits. 

• sports cars - I do have a car that I drive on occasion, and have been on a race track with it once so far.

• I am a watch nerd.

I also enjoy cycling, and I am a competitive Masters rower

I'm probably missing something, but that's the gist of my non working activities. And now typewriters...like I need another distraction

Re: What hobbies do you have?

My  hobbies include typing, reading, and various other sundries. I am currently writing a history of the 56th Infantry Battalion of the Australian Imperial Force in WW1, the unit with which my great-granduncle saw combat and was killed in action. ( Sorry for the gloom...) I also own my grandfather's old 35mm film camera, constantly armed with a roll of Kodak Tri-X 400 black and white negative film. I do not develop my own film... yet!

How can you tantalize us with your grandfather's 35mm camera without mentioning what model it is??
Also ... like that "... yet!"    
Have Fun!
