    Can anyone advise on what the water temps are running and if any prevalent chironomid hatches have been noted? Its been a few years since I've been to Pass and hoping to take advantage of this good weather this week to make a run up. Thanks, Yellowlab

    My friend and I fished the Gorge yesterday. It had been our first outing since October. When we got on the water (noon), I was disappointed to find the water at temperature to be 48 degrees. My game plan was to fish deep and slow using a bait fish pattern. I had absolutely no action at all until...

    What is up with your government Washington? I understand the purpose of the permit for freshwater but not for saltwater and definitely not for a boat on a trailer on the Interstate just passing through that will never touch WA waters. Any lawyers got an opinion on if it is legal to force...

    Question: how does one extend the life of a PVC fly line for years of good casting? Is it possible to make them last as long as the PU product?

    For a while now I have lurked on Redfin surfing beachfront properties only to see the prospects of what the beach might hold. Frankly I don't have the money or time to dump into a beach place, but the last three photos of each listing is what I am after. poor man's intel. Is there some structure...

    This might be interesting for some of you guys/gals... Both of these brown trout were caught within hours of each other, in the same lake, in September a few years back. Both were females I think... although the "brown" fish may have been male.. (mating colors?) ...and pretty heavy into the...

    I've been actively buying/ selling on this forum for 5 years now. Rods, lines, reels, clothes, you name it and as a bonus I've met some fantastic people in the process. I've had so many great experiences over the years that at some point, I began to let my guard down. Well, last week I finally...

    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...

    With all the reports coming out of Canada, and NOF negotiations, it is looking very bleak for any Salmon season at all. I could join the protests about this but when a resource is gone whats the point? Poor fisheries management (you bet). Over harvest by the tribes (you bet). Add in the blob...
