    Runes of the North by Sigurd F. Olson, bought it to take with me on a fly-in fishing trip to Canada last week and ended up not having much time to read so I'm reading it now, and also Path of the Puma by Jim Williams, heard about it on a meateater podcast and its been very good so far

    Which Mystery Ranch?

    Sounds like a great resolution to your problem, I got a Metcalf in the fall of 2017 and I have been very pleased with it so far, however if the Beartooth had been available at the time I would've most likely gone with it instead, I really wish MR made bag only options for their entire line...I...

    Anyone good with outboards?

    Are you saying that the problem started after you replaced the gasket? If so I would start there...also, I would pump some fuel into a clear container and make sure that you have good quality fuel, kind of sounds like it could be a water in fuel issue
