  1. 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...

    Angling Outside BC
    It was the second weekend of Oct 2010 and Edmonton was experiencing unseasonable warm fall weather.We were on Wabimun Lake 45 mins west of e-town on this fine fall day.Throwing spoons to the edge of the weed beds on the North Shore of this big lake moving West in direction when the first bite of...

    Environmental, Fishing Politics & Fishery Updates
    Sunday Oct. 10, 2010. While sturgeon fishing we observed these absolute doughheads abusing a sturgeon. It wasn't particularly large but they dropped their anchor buoy and drifted more than 500m down to where we were anchored. They brought the fish to the boat about 100m above us and proceeded to...

  5. Dead Fin Whale on Haida Gwaii

    Saltwater General Discussion
    We had a very sad death recently up here in Haida Gwaii, not far from my home. A very large Fin Whale washed up dead on the beach. I haven't heard how or why it died but sure would like to. They recently completed the autopsy and burred it in the sand to retrieve the bones after decomposition. I...
  6. [FISHING REPORT] Sept. 17 Fraser Mouth Sox

    Vancouver & Sunshine Coast
    Well, this last week we certainly have had to work harder for these last fish before the closure. They are still out there in numbers but not the biters they were. They have been traveling in the shallows too making it difficult for the dummy flasher set up's required to get these things to...
  7. 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...
  8. [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...

  12. [FISHING REPORT] Tahsis August 13 & 14

    Vancouver Island
    Had another good trip to Tahsis this year. The drive up is still a bugger - took about 10 hours each way with the last hour going there on dirt. Weather was a little touchy the first day (Friday) and getting out was a bit of a challenge. But we made it out to about 5 miles out and got into a...
  13. Lots of Floaters in Osoyoos Lake

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Been in osoyoos the last week, and noticed a large number of floating dead fish on the surface. You will see a couple on every outing in the boat. They are 3-4 pound fish, but are a bit pail now, and are hard to ID. It looks like they have faint spots visible on the tail, so I figure likely...
  14. Thompson river trout?

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Anyone been up to the T for rainbows lately? Just wondering how it's fishing and what flies they take. Fishing on the Little Campbell out here in south surrey has been great in the evenings. Some large cutties in there!:

    I was out enjoying the opening day of salmon fishing with a friend, we were in his boat and we jumped to a few different bars, we hooked and landed 5 chinook, only one was under the size limit as we thought, we use a stanley tape measure and while holding the fish in the air we measured it, it...
