  2. Alvey Reel Repair??

    Saltwater Tackle Talk!
    When I was in Australia a few years back my one trinket I brought back was an Alvey rod and reel designed for shore casting. Unfortunately while washing sand and salt out of my reel after a few beach pops at 3 in the morning and releasing numerous sand sharks I lost a spring that engages the...

    I've got a bunch of unlabled fly lines in the bar that came with old reels I bought cheap at various different junk and thrift stores and garage sales. How can one tell what weight a fly line is?
  5. 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...

  9. first mooching reel

    Saltwater General Discussion
    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...
  10. Reel songs

    Freshwater General Discussion
    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...

  12. Tuf Line Duracast

    Freshwater Tackle Talk!
    I picked up some Tuff Line Duracast recently and am very disappointed in the quality of the product. I always use Tuff Line XP when using braid but I thought I would pick up some of the Tuf Line Duracast to test it out on my spinning reel. It is actually a fused line like the old fireline (not...

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Hi all I am new to the region and started to fish my first time with bait casters/level wind reels. Is there a trick not to get so many bird nests?:( I think I spend half of the time fixing them. Is there any shop which will do some lessons? Any help is appreciated. Thanks
  16. spincaster vs levelwind for sockeye: what are your thoughts?

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I tried bottom bouncing for the first time last year on a trip to the upper fraser and now that sockeye are open look forward to getting out in the next couple of days. The guide that took us set us up with spinning reels but that was probably because everyone can use a spinning reel. I...
  17. Mooching Reels

    Saltwater General Discussion
    I just purchased a new Shimano Mooching Reel and was a little disappointed. Apparently all the new reels come with some drag, even when you loosen it off all the way? And when you crank it tight they still allow line to spool off? I like to have full control of the tension. I took the reel back...
  18. Reel Recommendation?

    Freshwater General Discussion
    So after a bad day on the river my reel broke after a bad spill wading. Anyone have a recommendation for a reel for chinook drift fishing. I prefer centerpin but anything works. Also any recommendations on a reel for bar fishing. Took out my old spinning bar reel and it's toast. I have 4 daiwa...
