    Found :thumbup: on the Vedder, a Toyota, security bar and house keys, as well a remote and some other tags on the key ring, which I will ask you to identify if you are claiming this set of keys. It looks like it has been lost for a while because of the rust on two of the keys. Cheers:cheers:

    Out of the last 6 fish I've hooked, I've lost ALL of them at the boat, including a monster spring today at Ambleside..... Time for an MR2, I think.... Does anyone think my wife will buy that excuse???
  14. [FISHING REPORT] Cap River Sept. 19

    Region 2 - Reports
    It's been awhile since I got out and went out this morning. Made it to the river by 7;30'ish. The river had risen at least 3 ft over night. I thought OMJG it's going to be a good day. Well mother nature did not disappoint. There was virtually no one on the river so I called my wife to wake my...
  15. Coal Port

    Saltwater General Discussion
    Went out Saturday and had Sockeye swarming around the boat. Landed one, lost two. Went out Sunday, very few Sockeye visable; however, lost one at the boat. Landed two White Springs: 10lb and 26lb. Both at 50-60 feet on Sockeye gear. Lots of grilse so keep an eye on your gear for that little wiggle.
  16. Lightning and thunder

    Freshwater General Discussion
    fished up by gill,we were in a boat, spectacular lightning, and then rain. we were there from 4-7, 2 fish landed, 3 lost beside the boat . After lightning and thunder started we did not touch another fish. Is this just random chance or do you think lightning and thunder CAN impact flossing?

  20. August 28 2010, Skagit River with amazing underwater video footage

    Fly Fishing Discussion
    Howdy! I went fishing in the Skagit River for a few hours yesterday. The water is low, as can be expected this time of year. We decided to start at the 26 mile bridge and walk downstream, as I have not explored this part of the river in a few years. There were a few fishable pools within...
