    So i've decided I need to get a pontoon for this upcoming year and I was wondering if you experts could tell me what I should buy. Basically kicking my float tube around in bigger lakes I want to hit sounds a lot less appealing than hooking up a trolling motor to pontoon, and also sounds a lot...

    I took a little trip up to Omak to see an ole friend, buy a new pistol in 9mm and to fish Omak lake. It was 1330 hrs when I got to beer can and the lake was like glass. As I was rigging up I could see some fish rising out in deep water, then I saw what I had come for, fish working close to the...

    Hey everyone. I'm a fairly new Fisher (less than a year) and an even newer fly fisher. I started with a Cabelas ready to fish setup in 5wt and once I started getting the hang of it, ended up buying a Sage Accel in 4wt and one in 8wt because they were such a good deal after being discontinued...

    I tied up some size 14 chironomids today. I tie with reading glasses, 2x power. I can’t see what I’m doing though, at least not as well as I would like to see. I did a search here, and found some people talked about using 3.5x glasses, other use the magnifiers that attach to the vise or...

    This is the latest time in the year in many decades that I made my first fishing trip. Usually the first trip is for trout but the weather report was iffy and I didn't want to freeze my ass off fishing a coastal lake. So I opted to try a private farm lake not far from my home instead...

    Next Thursday looks like it should be a user-friendly day for an old scarecrow to hit a wetside lake, according to the weather forecast. Monday is maybe looking like decent surf fishing conditions here. And I'll probably try to fish next Saturday, since it will be the last chance to extract my...

    We all want to get out early and fish after a long and difficult winter. And no one more than me since I haven't been able to fish for the past couple of years. So the news that Coffeepot was finally ice free was enough incentive for me to make the 3 1/2 hour drive over and stay for a few days...

    Ive never fly fished for big fish, like Wahoo, yellow fin, yellow tail, and other big fish. I'm tying up some deceivers, on 5/0 34007 saltwater hooks. Can anyone point me in the right directions, or will these work?

    I got drawn for a Smith River permit. The problem is that I put in for dates based on my availability and not optimum flows/conditions. The launch date that I ended up with is 8.1. After doing some research the general consensus is that the river will be too low by then. Any thoughts/experience?

    I might have a wee bit of fishy water around me. My house is almost dead center, overlooking everything... Edit: Not overlooking everything, just the Columbia and Crescent. I can't actually see Banks, just the dam...

    I nominate this nurse to be Secretary of Health and Human Services. Its peak flu season. The CDC is saying the vaccine is less than 20% effective. I ran into a guy I barely know at CostCo. He sneezes into his hand and then wants to shake mine. I fist bumped him and then headed to the bathroom...

    Little thrown off as far as where I should fish this time of year. Rookie fly fisherman, and not opposed to some spin casting, and or sinking some worms. I live in Seattle. Willing to drive 2 ish hours. Weather conditions don’t matter to me, except high windows are no bueno. I have a...

    ok guys, those of you with a whitewater pram what is the over all length and bottom width? also do you wish it was wider or narrower, longer or shorter? I ask because I am getting a drawing ready to build a 10 or 11 ft whitewater pram. I'm working on restoring a 15'x48'' wood drift boat now, I...

    This spool was in with some stuff I bought. A piece of paper with it said "Speedex". Its 3.5 x 7/8 inches. If you want it it's yours for the cost of postage. I tried to upload a picture of it but I'm not having success.
