    I own a high pitch (probably 12/12) asphalt shingle roof; and parts of it have an alarming amount of moss that grew this winter -- we moved in last August and there were traces of moss, but now there are golf ball and larger chunks. I'm trying to avoid hiring someone, and also trying to avoid...

    I've met up with many people over the years through trade shows, donation pickups, or them volunteering to help. Very few people have volunteered behind the scenes or I should say at the core level of the program. So now I'm going to explain what it is we do. We are a fly tying organization...

    Many years ago when I still had some decent vision I built a 7 foot rod on a Fenwick blank. A nice 6 weight that I built while recovering from hernia surgery so I had a lot of time on my hands and consequently a lot of wraps, I think just over 50 in total. For a glass rod it feels a bit fast...

    Burkheimer 8139-4 Vintage with a spare tip. The road was made in in 2013 and is more of a heavier wt.7. For example 480 gr or 450 gr 34' Scandi floater + leader or 30-45 gr polyleader is perfect. Another option is Rio Scandi wt.7 body 370 gr + 90 gr wt. 7 tip. This rod has a similar taper to...

    Does this type of damsel populate WA waters? If so, might be fun to try and come up with a pattern that one would fish off a floater and mimic it's in-the-film hunting behavior.... This photo is NOT upside-down...

    I posted this last December after my home was broken into and trashed. http://www.washingtonflyfishing.com/forum/threads/merry-friggin-christmas.123243/ Since that time, thanks to WFFer Penabost, I have a full home security system with cameras, glass break alert, and a 120 db siren that alerts...

    Here you go, OMJ, an actual fishin' report. Now quit yer whining! I am in the process of moving so I shouldn't even be fishing at all right now. But I couldn't pass up an invite by a friend to fish my favorite desert spring creek. No, not the crowded one near Ephrata. This is a gorgeous tiny...

    A buddy sent me this link earlier. I know I know its not fly fishing related but its fishing. An off topic forum would be entertaining.

    sometimes i write a bit about the memorable...when it comes to fishing we all have little stories we could tell... Lost Lake Little remembrances and experiences can define place and as they play out they define time, like this little lake I used to fish long ago. Those small places...

    Four of us had reservations at Lake HiHium in BC for the last week in August. Have been going there for over 20 years, but not this year due to the fires. Resort is still there but still under evacuation orders. One brother is flying out from Virginia and the other and his son are in Or. Any...

    Need someone to do a walk around on a camp trailer I am considering purchasing sight unseen. I will paypal you $100 for your time if you meet the current owner and have him show you that the utilities work before I make my trip over. If you can make this happen Wednesday, June 14th that would be...

    Ran across an ad for a new Pflueger Medalist reel. Since my first fly reel was a Medalist I took a look. My first question was where is it being produced? Never did find out. Then I find out it has a click and pawl system. What happened to that adjustable system from the far distant 1960's...

    A little over a year ago I tore a tendon in my shoulder which pretty much ended my early lake fishing as I could not handle a canoe on the top of my truck. I had a very nice pram built by nomlasder and then my access for dialyisis blew out for the next four months. This is not a poor me, just...

    I was looking for a multi density line to try my hand on the Provo and Weber rivers for brown trout to avoid the chunky skagit and OPST heads which splashes down. For multi density lines, I have the Airflo; Intermediate/Float skagit and triple density FIST skagit I found this on YouTube and...
