Re: Which New Wading Boot?

I just bought a pair of Simms Blackstone boots (Vibram sole) during my Pink Salmon trip to Campbell River. I used them for one day without the Carbide studs and found them great on the rocks in high,...

Re: Customer Service....

I've just had an excellent experience with Redington/Sage. I had a problem with the zipper on my waders, and even though the warranty had expired, they sent me a new pair of their Sonic Pro Waders....

Re: Lurking Members.....................

I fish all over Canada and am a member of many forums. Sometimes I just scan the new posts to see if there is anything interesting or something that I can help with. I am effectively "Lurking" while...

Re: Felt boots are back.

I put the Simms Carbide studs on my Simms Vibram-Soled boots and after three days fishing Salmon on Vancouver Island, I noticed that the Carbide bits are falling off. If the Steel/Aluminum studs are...

Re: The history of Switch Casting

I'm not sure of the quality of the rods in the late 1800's, but isn't a "switch" a rod cut from a tree?

Re: Your Record Trout?

I know what you mean; I threw a baby Muskie 20 yards into the woods once on Georgian Bay. It took me 30 seconds to find it and all was well.

Re: Do You Use the Solunar Tables?

I mainly fish lakes for trout and other game fish and I have to say that I do prefer the week before and after the full moon. I have never understood why I have done better during those times. Maybe...

Re: Your biggest fish on a fly?

A nice eight pound Rainbow on my #6 rod and intermediate line. I caught it on an olive krystal bugger.

Re: Using the correct line strength

So far this year, I have lost several "Fish of a lifetime" to what looked like knot failure. My friends suggested that my use of the old improved clinch knot might be the reason. It was news to me...

Re: Big Flies/Big Fish

I also have found this to be true, however, I sometimes get outfished by others who have downsized considerably. In general, I usually at least try the larger patterns once or twice each time to see...

Re: Allen Nano Ti

Sounds like the plot of a T.V. show. And with a happy ending. I'm hoping to get mine before the end of the season, the wait is killing me.

Re: Canada loses moral high ground on salmon conservation

The west coast salmon are also in serious decline for the same reason. The worst part is that the commercial fishery generates almost no revenue for the local economies. The fishermen spend most of...

Re: Some "Non-Fly" Manitoba Trophies

I was at Patterson lake this week, near Russell. Water was still really cold with some ice on it. The trout seem to be a little slow on most lakes in the area. Hopefully it will pick up for next week...

Re: Rainbow Trout Pics

Nice shots Nick. My buddy and I were going to go to Patterson today, but not with snow and heavy winds and below zero celcius temps. Hopefully I'll be posting some pics next week-end (some browns...

Re: Manitoba countdown

I'm counting the days until I can get out to the Ducks and the Rossburn area. As for suppliers, try Northern Angler in Dauphin. The owner John Yuri guides in and ties flies for...

Re: Fishing Wagon

We built a canoe like that in college from old growth cedar from Clayoquot Sound in B.C. It took over 300 hours. It was gorgeous. I'm so glad you posted this, thanks for the memories.

Re: if you only had one rod..........

I seem to favour my 10' 6wt over the others I own. The length helps when I use heavier lines and go for bigger fish. But this is strictly for stillwater in a tube or pontoon boat, which is what i...

Re: Okuma?

My Helios 6# is a good reel but a little pricey. I find it a little heavy and generally use my Pflueger more often.

Re: I have a confession...

I have to admit to having had some good fights with "Rubber Browns". Although not as exciting as the Scuba Diver I hooked.

Re: First Brown On Fly

That certainly is one of the nicest looking Browns I've seen. Lucky you: to be able to catch ones like that at this time of year. Today, in Saskatchewan, it is minus 35 degrees Celcius. Thanks for...

Re: Dorber New UltraWave rod

This seems a little on the heavy side for an "ultralight" 5# doesn't it? Even the Allbright A5 is lighter.

Re: how often do you double-haul in normal fishing scenarios?...

Fishing in a float tube on windy Prairie lakes in Saskatchewan/Manitoba calls for constant double-hauling.

Re: Redington CPX Waders Anyone? SIMMS Freestone?

I really like my Redingtons, especially the waterproof front zipper. I usually have a few coffees on the way to the lake or stream and I hate having to repeatedly take off my vest and jacket etc....
