    The only shop I've ever dealt with was Grand River Trout Fitters, in Fergus, Ont. I stopped in Fergus, several times to fish the Grand River, on my way to a lodge further north, and stopped in the...

    Re: Bug pics thread

    Definitely not a Japanese beetle. Too big. We call them June bugs(beetles) around here. We also use to tie a thread on one of the hind legs when I was a kid then attach them to our hats, and they...

    Re: Larger rods and bass flies?

    I mainly use a 9' 6 wgt for bass. Just haven't found the need to go heavier. My bass flies range from 2 to 6 inches in length. That bass looked to be about the size of the average smallmouth in my...

    Re: Fishing on the shore

    OK. I use furled leaders that average about 5' in length and add roughly 5' of tippet to them. The only time I'll go longer is if I'm fishing for trout that are spooky. I'll use about 7' then. My...

    Re: Fishing on the shore

    How were you holding the rod? I can't visualize why the line is slipping back through the guides. I do a lot of shore fishing, no boat or kayak, or there's not enough room in the boat. Three guys...

    I've been fortunate. I've only impaled myself three times. First time, I removed it myself. Numbed the finger with ice, pushed it through, and cut the barb off. Went to my doctor the next day,...

    Re: detachable fighting butt

    I had a Dave Lewis rod, many years ago. It was a 5 wgt so it didn't have a fighting butt. The only rods I have a fighting butt on are two of my three 8 wgts. I ordered a kit, I don't remember from...
