  2. first mooching reel

    Saltwater General Discussion
    Purchased my first entry level mooching reel ( Daiwa M1 Plus) to see if what everyone was saying about them is true. When I ask fisherman how they like using mooching reels they all say its the only way to go. Thought I would give it a try and see if I get hooked. In addition to the Daiwa I...

  6. Salmon in rivers: do they bite? Do they feed?

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Hello All, I just went fishing today on the Fraser River around Sapperton Landing off the shore for a few hours and caught nothing--even though salmon were jumping out of the water all around me. I was casting Gibbs Kit-a-mats, Crocs, and Fox spinners of various sizes, all to naught. Not even...

  8. how many is enough?

  13. spincaster vs levelwind for sockeye: what are your thoughts?

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I tried bottom bouncing for the first time last year on a trip to the upper fraser and now that sockeye are open look forward to getting out in the next couple of days. The guide that took us set us up with spinning reels but that was probably because everyone can use a spinning reel. I...
