    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?

    I would really appreciate some advice on fly lines. I have an 8 weight single hand , fly rod. I want to fish steelhead in the Vedder cannel this year. What type of sink rate would be the best all round line for the area? I tried some T 14 at different lengths but it is hard to cast. I thought I...

    I was in the Harrison yesterday. Tried trolling spinners and plugs for a while with not much luck. Noticed a bunch of boats right at the mouth. We decided to join this Chum jigging frenzy right at the mouth. At first we sat back on anchor for a bit and watched everyone to see what they were...

    Will be in Whitehorse next week, any good fly fishing close to the city? I'll probably take a 6 weight and some waders on my trip in case of a day off. Thanks.
  7. Freshwater General Discussion
    Hi folks, I thought I would throw this question out as a little challenge to see how well people can interpret both the saltwater and freshwater regulations. If our good mods feel there is a more appropriate section for this post, feel free to move it. It is primarilya 'salt' question but...

Looking forward to finishing break-in period tomorrow,as then I can take it to the ocean for some crab and maybe a little mooching around James Island. Started today fishing northwest side of Elk...

    So I am looking to get into a bigger boat and am trying to really figure out if I want to go with an outboard or an I/O. Admittedly I don't know as much as I should on the subject so some of your opinions on the following criteria would be appreciated. Ok so lets assume identical HP, both in...

    Hi Guys, I am coming over to Canada from the UK for three weeks from 29th August driving from Banff -Jasper- Whistler and Vancouver, mainly hiking sight seeing, but as a keen coarse and fly angler I hope to spend some time fishing for trout in the rivers/lakes on the way, maybe salmon in...

Any info would be very appreciated (lures, weight, good spots etc...). I will be trolling without...

    Hi , I'm considering buying a folding boat or porta boat as an alternative to inflatable or aluminum boats. I always like to hear the opinions of people who have or had this type of boat as it looks like a great boat in the water and light weight and easy to transport. Thanks.

    What kind of rod and reel should I be fishing coho with freshwater? I have a bunch of pike gear and Chinook bar fishing gear. I hate using 10 foot rods and my garcia 10000's seem like major overkill for coho. Will a 7 foot ugly stick med rod w spinning reel be good enough or do I need special...

    I have been making a few bar weights with homemade molds from scrap tin sheeting, but they are not very nice and a pain to deal with. Does anyone know who makes and sells molds for the wedge style weights? Thanks, Gord
