  1. Fly Tying
    The IFFF is using one of my baitfish patterns for a fly plate at the Expo in Eugene and so I finally need to name the pattern. I'm open for suggestions. Obviously, the pattern is meant to represent a wide range of baitfish (depending on how it is tied) and while I know they work quite well...
  2. Saltwater
    Hey everyone, I have recently strayed towards salty waters looking for some respite from steelhead fishing. My goal was to chase down some Sea Run Cutthroat. I spent today fishing the rising tide on a beach in the Gig Harbor area, trying to learn the ropes of the new environment. I had two...

    I haven't found a lot of info online on this rod. Seems like the few reviews I've read indicate most people prefer the bottom end of the grain window, 510 skagit and 450 scandi. For those who own or have cast this rod, what lines did you like? Skagit, scandi, Nextcast, etc.? Thanks GWJ
  4. General Forum
    A 100% medically retired soldier in my PHWFF program started up a non profit. He has had such emotional and physical gains through fishing he started getting any military or veteran out on the water. He decided to start a non profit so he could drum up donations and provide write offs. He's...
  5. Watercraft
    So i have a 16' Smokercraft and would like to add some tall oar lock sockets to the boat so i can stand up and row in the slower currents on the bigger moving streams. Ive seen various ones being used in fishing videos but when i search the internet to buy them i can't find a damn thing...

    Hey guys! I'm a senior at Indiana University working on a fishing startup in a business competition at my school. I believe consolidated information about captains/guides can help fishers of all experience levels make better decisions when/if they want a captain/guide so that great fishing...

    I am looking into a poss. purchase of a 7' 6" 5wt. fly rod. I need your input with likes/dislikes and brands that any of you are familiar with. Also $$$ ranges as well as likes/dislikes on brand names. Any and all info. would be appreciated. I fish a lot of rivers/creeks some quite bushy...
  8. Saltwater
    So after the stripping basket thread the other day, I was overcome with inspiration and picked one up. It's not the sexy Linekurv, it's a collapsible one from Bass Pro Shop with a mesh bottom. I had a rather frustrating morning with my line tangling up into knots inside the basket while...
  9. Gear/Technique
    hello good sirs or possible misses, does it sounds like the rod is under or overloaded during my current spey casting attempts; i am inclined to believe the former based on the following anecdotes. another possibility is i have unrealistic expectations of the load i want to feel in the rod. i...
  10. Gear/Technique
    My apologies in advance for asking to be spoon-fed on this one subject, but in my defense, my intent for the rod is probably a bit non-standard. Also to be honest, the searches I've done have been a bit overwhelming in the amount of information they've yielded. Here's my sitch. I have an...
  11. Saltwater
    .. but first let me start by saying this is not a rant - even though it might sound like one. I am truly confused as to why there seems to be so little interest in offshore fly fishing in the PNW? Why? Salmon fishing opportunities are being taken away to the point that it's almost not worth...
  12. Cast & Blast
    I saw these strange duck decoys at the Goodwill. I can't seem to identify them. Does anyone have a clue what they are?
  13. Gear/Technique
    I am in the market for a 7 weight switch rod. My choices are Sage One, Pulse ,Accel and Method. Maybe Scott . Any feedback on these rods would be appreciated. Thanks
  14. General Forum
    hello good sirs and possible misses, i built the rod in question and did not like it as a single hander; required too much effort vs. my 8'6" to cast similar distance with dry flies. instead of selling it i am now considering rebuilding the butt piece for a two handed type setup for large...
