  1. 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...
  2. Does this knot pass the test?

    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...

  4. 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...
  5. Albion Test Nets

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I was just comparing last years test numbers compared to this years just to get an idea of what the chum situation's looking like, and it turns out the numbers showing up this year have at least doubled over from last year at this same time, which is good news. However, the main thing I noticed...
  6. Albion Test Sets & Increasing Chum Numbers

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I noted that the chum return numbers are now really starting to increase. Last few days to be specific. I took a run up the Stave yesterday and had a good look around. I didn't see anything for chums. No jumpers, nothing. It doesn't mean they are not there of course, but what other tributaries...
  7. [FISHING REPORT] Port Renfrew - Sept 2010

    Vancouver Island
    Just got back from a week in Rennie with my oldest son. This was my first trip over there, so it was a learning experience. To sum it up, the spring fishing was slow. Not a lot coming in, and most weren't that large that I did see landed. The Coho fishing just started to heat up the last couple...

    Region 5 - Reports
    Fished the Bella Coola River on July 30th. Pinks and Chums were running. The Chinook run was ending. Had 5 hookups. One big one peeled off all of my 20lb test line from my spinning reel and then snapped the line when it reached the end. One salmon and one trout/dolly spit the hook. In the...
  9. Signs

    Advertiser Specials & Updates
    The sign at Brigantine reads: ‘20 Percent off on all boat canvases’. Short and to the point. However informative it is, other signs have got attention. One of our first was: ‘Brigantine Marine, the Best Little Oar House in Langley, BC’ That got a mention in local newspapers but ‘The Reason They...

  11. 2010 Sockeye run

    Freshwater General Discussion
    This is great to see. All the test nets for 2010 is already at 455,000 sockeye and we are not even into September. In 2002 which was the biggest run in 50yrs totaling 638,000 sockeye. Looks like this year will be the same as 2002 or better. As for warm water in the Fraser I believe it is...

  13. Positive voltage control/Black box

    Saltwater General Discussion
    I've read about this for some time now and finally got around to doing a test. I guess it's best to be around .600, from what I've read. This test was done with metal downrigger cable. My question is, I have spectra on two of my downriggers and I was wondering if that would eliminate the voltage...
