    DIY Southern Chile

    For those of your that have read other post you know I am addicted to far off places that aren't easily accessible. After experiencing Patagonia on the Argentina side for the past 12 years I thought I would try the Chilean Patagonia for 5 weeks on a do-it-yourself adventure. After 1,000 miles...

    Looking for plans/ dimensions for wooden net DIY

    I would LOVE to have a beautiful long handled wooden net with a clear catch and release bag, but theyre so pricey. The clear net material can be cheaply purchased as a replacement for nets already on the market. My brother has a nice set of wood working tools, and I have some (SOME...LOL)...

    Looking for help DIY in Chile

    I am looking for any help on do-it-yourself trips to Chile. I have a rental car and a pontoon boat for one month in Nov-Dec. I have fished Patagonia Argentina for the past 15 years and know it well, but I am wanting to try another part of Patagonia. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    OP DIY

    I am tentatively planning a short DIY weekend on the OP in October. I've never fished the OP before or in Washington at all. My understanding is that there should be good numbers of steelhead around, and lots of SRCs. My goal is to try and get some fish on top. I generally prefer to fish...

    DIY rod cady!

    Made this just over 1 year ago! Got the idea from visiting a event on the calender for the Finnish flyfishing championships twice on my local river! People in the comp had ones made of wood, when you have 15min slots for a pool or section, you don't have time to set up a new leader & flies, just...

    Trip Report DIY ELuthera Bahamas

    I just returned from a two week vacation and DIY bonefishing trip in the Bahamas. As luck would have it, I tore my rotator cuff three days before the trip, so I became my wife's personal guide. The weather was a bit tough with clouds and winds, but we managed to catch a few fish. We kayaked...

    DIY Jackson Hole, WY

    I will be in Jackson Hole on business all of next week. The rough part is that once we're there my "business" is done...I just fly the plane and then pass the time until we leave. I know, my job sucks. Anyways, I've managed to get my co-hort into fly fishing as well, so we're looking for some...

    DIY rod racks

    Anyone made anything that they can share pics of? Thinking of something basic like this.....Doesn't need to be elaborate or fancy. I could dress it up by doing reclaimed wood, but that is about it. Have use of some tools but never done much woodwork so it almost has to be basic. I think I...

    Fishing buddy portable fish finder broke mount

    I have a bottom line fishing buddy that has served me well since the mid 90's. I hit a stump in lake kapowsin, breaking the mount and ejecting the fish finder in the lake. (Who knew I could row a drift boat that fast?) My dog heard the finder splash down, exciting her and she got in the way of...
