    Vancouver Island
    After reading the thread talking about Gary Cooper seeming a bit "giddy".....I figured I should throw up some pics from Nootka in early-mid August. http://www.bcfishingreports.com/forums/threads/16805-Any-one-choked.......?p=131886#post131886 I usually end up fishing with my GF on the bulk...
  5. Apologies to lionfish

    Saltwater General Discussion
    Lionfish, Let me just extend an apology to you......I didn't mean to come across as an arse which I apparently did. I just had a feeling (unrightly so) that your post may have been a "one post" type question which we have seen many, many times on the forum. I, as do many members like to...

  8. 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...

    Boating Forum
    Hey I spoke to Thunder Jets Head Office in Oregon today to see if they had any info on whats up with TNT Marine. I have been trying to contact them for a couple of weeks to get some warranty work done but there has been no answer and no returned calls from messages left. They informed me that...
  10. From spinner to baitcaster, now I ponder is Fly Fishing Right for me?

    Fly Fishing Discussion
    It's easy to learn to fly cast; more difficult to catch something. Investing in a lesson or two will get you on the right track from the beginning and will pay dividends. If you teach yourself to cast it is very easy to pick up bad habits which are difficult to lose later on. Other than that...
