    Hey guys! I'm looking at buying a used 9 or 10 wt fly rod (spey rods accepted) with a reel included. I don't really have any specifications as to a brand, but I do require it to be in full working order, undamaged (aside from regular wear), and a personal check before purchasing. Hoping to...
  3. Freshwater Tackle Talk!
    Hi! I want to get into some sturgeon fishing this summer and i'm wondering if its better to go with a casting set up for shore fishing or a spinning set up. Help me decide. I'm thinking of going with a 12 foot ugly stick which comes in both casting and spinning types. I'm not a big sturgeon...

    I'm looking for a lead on a smaller diameter pin reel for trout this summer. I've been running my trusty Islander all fall/winter, but with the end of the season (here in Washington) I want to set my sights on the summer's trout fishery. I'd like to start using a centerpin year round, but...

    Sport fishing column for Oct 25 to Nov 1, 2010 One of the keys to successful angling is analysis. I tell students in my fly fishing classes to analyze everything from start to finish, both good and bad, on every fishing trip. Analysis brings theory and theories proven or disproven bring...
  8. Rod Wraps!
    Decided to take on a fun project and build me a Rainshadow BP1265 downrigger rod. I am going with a Alps triangle reel seat and Tich guides with gold plating. She's coming along nicely so far!!

    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...

    I just bought my second baitcaster (Shimano Citica 201E) [third if you count my Walmart sturgeon reel] reel this afternoon and I notice that in the free spool, the line guide does not move back and forth with the line. I did a couple of research through google and found the term "non-disengaging...

    The last weeks have been Spey-tacular as guests were fortunate to catch the famous Steelhead Trout on the fly. With the rivers up and down in level like a frog in a frying pan the guys prevailed and never gave up. Fishing from the bush as the rivers are so high that finding a gravel bar to...

    Purchased my first entry level mooching reel ( Daiwa M1 Plus) to see if what everyone was saying about them is true. When I ask fisherman how they like using mooching reels they all say its the only way to go. Thought I would give it a try and see if I get hooked. In addition to the Daiwa I...

    Hey Everyone I have recently moved to Vancouver from Ireland. I would consider myself an experienced angler but it seems that the techniques used here, especially for salmon fishing are quite different so I suppose even after 15 yrs fishing back home I am in the newbie category. I joined...

    It's sad one can't let a reel sing. You know, the sound that increases your heart beat a bit more than the tug, the run, the jump. (the adrenaline rush) I hate and love the mute on my baitcaster. I can fish stealth or, if I know I'm alone (not these days!) turn it on. Got some old reels I wanna...

    So I've been contemplating getting a new downrigger rod to go with my Islander MR3, single action reel.... Choices rattling around my head are a Sage SA4120 or getting a custom 10'6" Rainshadow rod of the equivalent. Some guys are saying that a 12' rod is simply too much rod for downrigger or...
