    My brother and I are taking my dad to Terrace, BC, the last week of September, 2017, to celebrate his 80th birthday. This is a DIY trip. We have access to a truck and a raft. None of us has ever been there before so I'm trying to gather some beta on the area. I'm not looking for anyone's...

    I am trying to get a better understanding of the grain weight differences between various Rio VLs (standard spey VLs, scandi light VLs, and trout VLs) as well as the similar offerings by Airflo. Does anyone have a link to a grain weight table they could provide for these, or a contact who could...

    Got myself a practice rod. It's a old WW Grigg, not even sure if they are still around. I stripped the snakes and guide off. What should I clean the blank with? As a little varnish/glue type residue on it. This is an E glass rod. I'm keeping reel seat and grip. And keeping tip top all...

    Hi all, I have a sage Circa 589 blank that I got on closeout that will be my first full build, the problem I have is that I'm at a loss on buying the components, I know the guide sizes thanks to Sage's web site, but I'm not so sure on the handle, reel seat and tip, any tips? I wish there was a...

    Hi All, I am looking for an integrated line for a 9.5 ft 8wt Winston B3x. I already have an OPST skagit rig on a different spool for it. I won't buy RIO anything. I'll entertain any other brand though I've been keen on trying something from Airflo. After speaking with a few shops, The Kelly...

    Sold a boat to a guy from CA last fall. He's fairly new at rowing and so he was hoping we could meet up and fish together for a day or two with his new toy. I had always wanted to fish the Rogue or Umpqua and we agreed to meet and deliver his boat and go through setup and basic rowing, while fly...

    Got an email message from a classmate of mine hoping to be able to relocate two GSPs. I'm copying the message here, so if anyone wants the pups, they're yours. Hi there John. I need your help. I have a friend who is an avid pheasant hunter who unfortunately is in the final stages of cancer...
  10. Photography / Video
    My old Epson printer bit the dust, and so after some research bought a Canon MG7720. It looked like it would be a decent home printer with pretty good photo printing capability. Now keep in mind I know next to nothing about photography, and these days do most of mine off of a Samsung 6 or...

    Hello all, I've just picked up this reel and want to make sure it's setup for left hand retrieve. I also want to see if I can get a better understanding of the drag setup. I've got to say, as much as Abel charges for a reel you would think their website would be a bit more organized and...

    Hey everyone. I've been looking high and low for a commercial rod holster for my outcast 1100 11' pontoon raft. I've found only one but the mounting doesn't work with my frame. I've seen some DIY with PVC but just don't have the tools or know how to do it. Anyone here built one of these whose...

    I had some items stolen from me years ago, and some of those items were some Hardy reels. I still have a few spools left, and I can't recall which size reel they fit. I believe they fit my JLH reels, and I think they fit my 8/9. Or was it my #7? :-) I hope to pick up another reel to go with...

    I have a 6wt Sage VXP paired with a 6wt Rio Grand. I'm in the market for new line and was considering the Rio Coastal Quickshooter. I was thinking about over or under lining my vxp to try and slow down the action so I can make more open loop casts. Can I achieve this by over lining or under...

    I got a few boxes of flies at a garage sale a while back, and while I've seen most of the patterns before, these are unfamiliar. Anyone recognize them? All are on stainless steel hooks, with either two or three loops of pearl tinsel on the back. Those tinsel loops are new to me. Whatever...

    Getting ready to order supplies to start knocking a bunch of these out. What are your favorite chenille rubber leg combos for the Yakima only? Brown chenille with what color legs? Olive chenille? Ect. Also, have any of you tied them on the Dai ricki 700b, any pictures? Thank you so much for the...

    So I got this sinking tip included with a used reel and I have no idea what this is? It came from a single handed rod/reel. Reel weight was 7/8/9. Length of the tip: 15' Weight of the tip: 5 grams Has loops welded on both ends so that means factory tip. White tubing on one loop. Feels lighter...

    I have a buddy coming into town this weekend with his drift boat and wants to go chase some Steelhead. Outside of the Sky, I am pretty clueless. I know where a handful of fish have been caught on the sky. Are there better options out there within a couple hour drive of Kirkland? Feel free...
