    Hi everyone, just got back from fishing this weekend. While I was there I collected some nice bits of dead willow which had fallen in to the lake. I will post pics tomorrow. But Iwas wondering how long you need to boil the wood for till it becomes safe to use?

    What about acetylsalicylic Acid in the bark ie;aspirin? Not sure I would want my fish swimming around in a bath of that knowing that they use it for thinning the blood to prevent clots
