Hi Ben,

Not very familiar with that area, but from what I see of it I would either be using a sink tip line or floating line with a floro leader depending on the water. For pink salmon I generally...

Re: New To Alaksa

I'm a little late to the game here, been out of touch for far too long here.

I'm here in Cordova, I imagine you'll be stopping in here a few times during your stay at the hatcheries. I'd be happy...

Re: question

Hi Morphius,

I pretty much only use a floating line up here any more. I've found using a fluorocarbon leader makes a big difference on getting flies to sink. I vary my leader length and...

Re: Rotary tying

I use a Griffin Montana Mongoose and love it. I use the rotary feature on probably 75% of the flies I tie. It took a while to figure out how to use the rotary so it actually made things easier, but...

Re: Nautilus CCF

I believe the CCF has pretty much the same drag system, just slightly smaller and with steel rather than ceramic & titanium parts. That's why I put up so much about the NV, as that's the one I have...

Re: Nautilus CCF

Hi Mike,

I've got one of their NV series on my 6 weight that I use for salmon up here. Incredible reel with a great drag and pretty much indestructible. From what I understand, the CCF drag...

Re: crystal meth

Heh, I thought it was an original tie from you. :tongue: Sorry 'bout that.

So since they've been around a while . . . Pink the most effective color? How's other thread colorings affect it?

Re: crystal meth

Hi George,

How about a new name for it? Naming it after one of the most destructive street drugs out there just seems inappropriate to me . . .

What size are you tying those on for Steelhead? ...

Re: HOW ABOUT an off the wall ?

Hi Bear,

Well, I don't think I'd be bait fishing in a SHTF scenario. Seems to me flies would be a better choice as they don't rot and attract unwanted visitors, easier to pack with you and can be...

Re: glo bugs

I've used McFly egg foam, it comes out looking nice but a little more buoyant than I like. Chenille is probably my favorite for eggs though as you can put a little bit of weight underneath if you...

Re: I hate ice!!!

Hi George,

A technique that has worked for me is use a fairly thin heavy line like the Cortland sink tips and cast the tip out over the ice. After it sinks for a second a good sharp tug will cut...

Re: Tradition vs. Plastic, The Hidden Irony

So this type of "fishing" isn't seen much outside Alaska? I've seen it used a few times as well, always by visitors from out of town though. Perhaps that's why it's illegal to use the beads in...

Re: what line?

Last season I fished almost exclusively with a multi-tip line for Salmon without a problem, it was a decent solution. This year I've been using the Sharkskin line for salmon and have had great...

Re: Bird Dog training?

That's a great story, thanks for sending me over there.

One of my dogs is a pretty wild Husky/Lab mix. When I'd take him out where there were fish around he'd go and catch a few by himself and...

Re: Bird Dog training?

That's why I trained my dog's to go retrieve fish for me. :smile: Husky mixes are great for that.

Re: Sharkskin Guide Wear Update?

Wish that was true for me, it's up over $200 to fill up the tank on my Chevy. :eek:

I'm sure the surface tension is the biggest factor in my sinking thing, I'm just surprised it stays under. ...

Re: Sharkskin Guide Wear Update?

I'm sure that has something to do with it, but shouldn't the line still float though since it has a lower density than water? Especially since it was in salt water?

Re: Sharkskin Guide Wear Update?

I've been using Sharkskin on my 8wt since last fall, and my 6wt since April. No problems on either of them yet and they both have caught plenty of char and salmon with it. Also haven't had anymore...

Re: line to leader connections

Hi Frank,

Let me know how those Kaufmann's work out.

The Nautilus is great, I've caught about 30 pinks on it so far this season, and hooked up with a couple of early, unexpected silvers on it...

Re: line to leader connections

Hi Frank,

I haven't tried those Kaufmann's loops, only the Cortland ones. I'm not sure the kevlar would help much, mine didn't seem to take much damage, I never had one show any signs of wear...
