  2. 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...

  12. We all look better in shades

    Contributer Discussions
    I can't wax as poetically as Ribwart, Fishortho and others so foregive me (and my lack of spell check). Out Saturday A.M. the concert beacons (headlamps and flashlights lifted and lighted the trail), marking the meat/honey holes; no fires so I guess the camping was at a minimum. Worked my way...
  13. A cautionary tale

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Just thought I'd post this as a reminder to all to be careful out there! On Saturday, I decided to visit some familiar spots along the Squamish north of Ashlu. The torrential rains of last week sure brought the river up to incredible heights - the brush along the banks was stained with silt at...
  14. 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...

  17. [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...
  18. Sturgeon Etiquitte

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Here is the question that I post to you all: If you are anchored in an area with a few other boats, sturgeon fishing of course, do you pull anchor and move if another boat is chasing a fish headed your way? That being said, here is why I ask: Yesterday, I hooked a really good fish, saw it a few...

    Saltwater General Discussion
    Just wondering if there is or could be an easy way for fisherpeople (PC enough) to send and receive fishing reports while on the water. Like a BCFR app stricly for on the water reports where you could post where and when and how you are catching fish while on the water when you need it most...
  20. Post-Sockeye Fraser Tips Please

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Most falls I find myself fishing the Fraser Tributaries (Vedder, Harrison-Chehalis). After frequent summer excursions to different locations on the Fraser for sockeye this past summer, I wondered to myself, "What does salmon fishing look like here after the fall closing when the Fraser opens...
