  5. Spoons attached to leader or main line?

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I've been using spoons and crocs the last little while and have been questioning my set up. I've been attaching a swivel at the end my 15lb test then a 10lb lead with the spoon or croc on it. Is it even worth attaching the 10lb leader or would I be safe just using the main line? and would...

    Fly Fishing Discussion
    I've been practicing my knot tying for a few days now and finally getting past the quitting stage!! My eye sight ain't what it once was. :( The one knot I find easiest to do is the Duncan Loop/Uni-Knot. I would like to know if it's a acceptable knot to tie tippet to leader? If it's used for fly...

    Region 2 - Reports
    so finally i decided to get out and fish when my rod has been collecting dust for a long time. It was stupid of me to not bother to get new lines etc, cause i have no idea how long 2 years storage shelf will last. Apparently the big problem for me today was LOSING my hooks, i was tying them...
  8. Anchovy rigging

    Saltwater Tackle Talk!
    Generally, I run cut plug herring, but am going to give anchovies a whirl. How do you chovy guys run them? I was advised to buy some helmets, but a far as the hooks go...Just the same as cut plug herring? With herring, I run a 4/0 and 3/0 and about a 5' 25# leader. If some of you wouldn't...
  9. Best leader line...

    Freshwater Tackle Talk!
    What kind of leader line do you guys use during the river salmon season? What brand and what variety? What are the benefits to this kind of line, and why do you prefer it?
  10. Stave Sept 30

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I arrived at the river just before 7:00. There were a few fish around, I caught one chum (buck) not in good shape so back in the water. Hooked into one more but leader broke off. I was alone on the river except for a heron for about 1 1/2 hours. The fog was rolling around but the sun...
  11. Finally something to report!

    Saltwater General Discussion
    Was out at the mouth of the Cap today, dropped the crab and prawn traps early and was fishing by 8:00AM. Had two or three hits, and then right at the marker I got smacked by this 20lb-er. The boats were pretty thick in there, so I punched the throttle and headed out to the shipping lane...

  15. [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...

  17. Anyone fished the Adams river mouth?

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I recently came across this video, and got interested in fly fishing the mouth of the Adams with an egg pattern for rainbows. I am wondering though, when using egg patterns, if you should use an indicator on a 9ft leader and floating line or use it without an indicator. It would also be...

    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...

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Greetings all, Just after some advice on a good lure/plug etc.. for slow lake trolling. I currently use Lyman's and the occasional Apex spinner, all about 4" long for bigger rainbows with a nice long leader (20'+). I use 4-6 ounce weights and go real slow, I get a fair amount of bites and the...
