Re: First Time Salmon Fishing

Gratz Hunt.

Brown Vs. Speckled

I was at my local favourite pond tonight, and as usual, catching decent Browns, up to ~ 12 inches. I got to thinking (dangerous, I know) that in this pond, biggest Brookie I've ever landed was about...

Fly Change Frequency

I'm just curious how often folks change their flies, when you know fish are there but not taking.

For me, be it trout or salmon, 10-15 minutes on a normal basis. But stubborness takes control at...

Thanks Dennis. I'm new to wading boots and didn't have any idea on what damage I'd do the soles.

Wader / Hiking question

What's your limit of how far you hike with felt-soled wading boots on? I'm talking about walking on gravel woods roads and rocky paths.

Looking to do a kind of a circle Saturday morning, park the...

Re: What's the strangest thing you've seen while out fishing?

A few nights ago I was at the head of the pond close to my house, close to what I call the "Beaver Condo" (two huts together).

Re: 80/20

I voted "Everything", but for me, fishing dry flies provides so much more enjoyment than fishing subsurface.

Re: Do You Have The Time or How Bout Your Watch.......

Reel Drag Type Question

I just read on a site that disc drags should only be used for heavier tippets as the "break" torque required to start the slip would be above what a fine tippet can stand. Therefore, with a fine...
