    Anyone have any thoughts on these two rods? The loomis is 9' and the sage is 9'3", both have nice extended butt handles for figure 8s, I just haven't had the chance to cast them yet. About the same price, too. Most of the fishing I do is in lakes in northern Ontario so I'd like a rod that is...

    Hi, I'm looking for rods or anything custom made by John Propp. He was my grandfather and I've made the leap to get into fly fishing. What took me so long, I don't know. Any leads or information, or even stories are much appreciated.

    I'll be headed up to northern Manitoba with family this summer for a fishing trip focusing mostly on pike. I've never fished for pike before, let alone on fly, but I'm super pumped about it. From pictures I've seen, there are some big ol' pike up there. So, I wanted to ask what anyone with...

    Bit of a long tying video 30min, but the information & book at the start of the video was very interesting! Anyone who says they pioneered pike flyfishing in the 80's & 90's is talking through their ass unless it was the 1780's & 1790's!

    I recently moved to Whitefish MT and am a block from Whitefish lake and the locals tell me that the Pike will be moving into the shallows soon. I have never caught a pike on the fly. I have a bunch of big old nasty streamers and some 30 pound mono. Any tips? Anyone in the flathead valley...

    In the winter I tied some flies putting the Bauer power rattle on top of the shank! When i fished them in the spring i noticed the hook was hanging down from the weight! In the summer i started tying the rattle on top of the shank! Found out recently that is even making the fly want to swim...

    Left at 2 pm last friday and logged the first 600ish miles of my trip. Arrived at destination 1- my good friends driveway. Hard to sleep that first night with the city sounds gone and the crickets and stars alive. But sleep I did. Woke on morning one, with my buddy's boats already loaded in the...

    Any fly recommendations or other pike trivia that you have stumbled upon? I know that it's a bad question to post on a Washington based fishing site, but some of you guys have been around. I'm visiting the grandparents in a few weeks. We'll be staying at their cabin on a lake that holds...

    My first SBS on request for nick. This is a variation of the T-Bone fly. I use a wide variation on colors and flashes, but it is always hinged, always rattles, always uses bucktail and body tubing, and is always big. ( 8 to 14 inches). Regardless of the size, this fly suspends really well in...
