  2. large arbor fly reels are awesome

    Fly Fishing Discussion
    I'm new to using a large arbor fly reel and just had to say how much I really enjoy fishing it. Mine is a Snowbee Geo but the make probably secondary to my point in this post. Being able to catch up to a crazy coho that runs at break-neck speed from 100' out to inshore, goes around behind me...
  3. Kitimat Steelhead Report - October, 18 2010

    Freshwater Professional Reports
    The last weeks have been Spey-tacular as guests were fortunate to catch the famous Steelhead Trout on the fly. With the rivers up and down in level like a frog in a frying pan the guys prevailed and never gave up. Fishing from the bush as the rivers are so high that finding a gravel bar to...

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Just thought I'd post this as a reminder to all to be careful out there! On Saturday, I decided to visit some familiar spots along the Squamish north of Ashlu.

    Region 2 - Reports
    I headed out for first light this morning. Started down by Keith Wilson. I don't know the river very well, if at all, so my day was pretty experimental. The water was high and fast, in comparison to the one other time I headed out a couple years ago. I had my pin, so it was hard to get my...

  11. [FISHING REPORT] Port Renfrew - Sept 2010

    Vancouver Island
    Just got back from a week in Rennie with my oldest son. This was my first trip over there, so it was a learning experience. To sum it up, the spring fishing was slow. Not a lot coming in, and most weren't that large that I did see landed. The Coho fishing just started to heat up the last couple...

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I take a day off last Friday, to try my luck in Peg Leg. I've stayed for a few minutes 'till I hook one and try to bring it to shore right away. While it was very close to the shore, there's this duo (ADULT) with camper claiming I snag their line and it was their fish. So I apologized and tell...

  14. The elusive sockeye

    Saltwater General Discussion
    Arrrggghhh. Just curious if anyone can help me figure out what I was doing wrong. We were out yesterday from 2 until 7 in the pack of boats of the south arm.

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I recently took up building custom rods, and decided that my latest build would be a rod for my neice. She lives in Kamloops and my brother takes his kids out to the local lakes quite frequently, either still fishing from shore, or trolling very light gear. I wanted to build a rod that she could...
