  3. Flyfishing Mabel lake, any ideas?

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Next week I will be heading off to Mabel lake for a camping trip with some buddies before the winter hits. Since I mostly fish mountain lakes, I am not used to fishing on big lakes so I need a few hints. I would rather use my fly rod than my spinning rod, but I think that this might limit me...

  5. Blank Recommendations - Batson Or Talon?

    Rod Wraps!
    I am thinking about building a rod for my friend who breaks rods so often. The size will be 10 and half feet and rating will be 10-20 pound line and more or less $100 will be spent for the blank. He fishes mostly on Chilliwack - Vedder system. Which one do you think will last longer before...

    Region 3 - Reports
    Well in typical hot and cold fashion Edith slowed yesterday. Still into around 8-10 fish but nothing compared to the 5th.

  9. Thanks for the 'chovy tips!!!!

    Saltwater General Discussion
    I would have posted this in the report section, but it's not a BC Report. I was in the States :) I just wanted to say thanks to everyone for the 'chovy rigging tips. I had a couple of friends come up from out of town and one of them had never caught a salmon of any sort. After reading the...
  10. Vedder Etiquette

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I recently read a post that referred to someone being "lowholed" on the Vedder and it got me thinking about how I feel about this and what other people might think. Here's my position: On the Vedder in the fall almost no ones moves. I realize that rotational angling is the proper way to go...
  11. [FISHING REPORT] Marmot Lake

    Region 5 - Reports
    Was out with my son visiting grandpa in Nazko, and decide to try our luck on Marmot Lake. The sun was shining brightly, a slight ripple across the water from a nice breeze and fish showing all along the rushes and plant life, to about 20 or 30 ft out. My 6 yr old son went with the traditional...

  13. line suited for deep pools

    Fly Fishing Discussion
    What is a good line for deep slow moving water for targeting mostly cohos? I was thinking possibly an intermediate sink line. Is Cortland 444 any good?

  17. Chum _ Indian Arm

    Saltwater General Discussion
    Hello, I just moved near the Indian Arm and acquired a boat. I was thinking about trying the Arm for Chum this month, probably try mooching, (the Indian Arm park website claims it sees a large annual run) I was wondering if anyone had any experience in this area or if I would just be pleasantly...
  18. Need new waders!

    Freshwater Tackle Talk!
    Hey guys, I need a new pair of waders. I was thinking neoprene, but I assume that breathables are the way to go. My budget is as low as possible! I know you get what you pay for, but I figure if I get a decent product and take good care of it, I should be able to get some good value out of...
  19. Identifying Smolts - Sept 11, 2010

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Catching sockeye off of Herrling Island this year, I noticed along the shore what I assumed were coarse fish ready for all the castaway innards of cleaned sockeye. My young son even caught a dozen or so (and threw them back), using sockeye eggs. I couldn't identify them, but it got me to...
