Re: Old School Watermasters...

Picked up the Watermaster. It's a nice little boat... almost exactly like the Tote-N-Float. Different color, pinned oars, handles and a hard seat but other than that it's almost identical.

Re: Oregon Closures...

Re: Animas river poisoned

Those photos make it look pretty bad! Looks like a river of Tang...:eek:

I think a lot of the potential damage also has to do with the rate at which the water was being released. Was it a huge...

Re: ferrule damage

I agree that you will get it back a lot faster from a local rod builder, and the work will probably be done just as well (if not better). I've repaired broken blanks (broken into 2 pieces) in less...

Re: Rattle Snake Selfies

I wonder what the selfie ended up looking like. Was the snake striking at him without him knowing it? It had to close enough to be in the shot, as that was the whole point of him taking it.

Re: Rattle Snake Selfies

Fred, did the Duke do any fishing? That would be a great mental image to have for the rest of my life! He would have beat the tar out of that rattlesnake. Just sayin' :D

Re: A really offensive word

I met a new customer of mine at a local park on the Rogue River so that I could set him up with his rod/reel and we could go through some beginning casting instruction. I asked him if he had ever...

Re: Underwater Fishing

That would just be cool to see a fish hiding out under a ledge while hanging out with it in it's element. Then to entice it to grab... nice.

Re: Underwater Fishing

I don't know how practical it is (or is meant to be), but I think the perspective is worth seeing. To see how fast that take was... pretty cool! :D

Re: A really offensive word

IMHO - There are no elite fisherman... maybe elite casters, but no elite fisherman. I don't think anyone can excel to the level of elite when there is so much that is out of there control. Besides,...

Re: GoPro Advice Needed !!!

Re: GoPro Advice Needed !!!

Great setup WJC! I guess what they say is true about "necessity..." being "...the mother..." and all. I'm sure we all want something different when we get to the water, whether we're talking about...

Re: Who makes best chest waders?
