Finishing up a project drift boat soon and need to make a decision about the rowers seat. Would love to hear some feedback on both types.
Some pertinent details, I had a major back surgery 20 years ago so it is important for me to have my knees level with my waist or below for all day...
I'm in the process of outfitting an older PAC1400 (before the more modular nrs frame). I've done a lot of research on putting in flip seats and I'm seeing that having a non low pro/non adjustable frame is going to make the process of putting in a traditional flip seat very expensive and custom...
I have a Stealth Pro and love it. However the seat back could be better. Watermaster sells a hardback seat accessory that might work as an alternative. Anyone try this or something else. My lower back hurts after hours fishing! Thanks.
Have them? FYI, Costco.com has CoverKing neoprene for $349 shipped, both rows, front & back. No Camo, which is all right by me, the CEO wouldn't go for the look. Just wanted something that would save the interior and be waterproof. If you go to the site, it says through 4/30/2017 but I got the...
Looking for some 9ft oars. I have three 8.5ft Sawyer Polecats that I'd trade if you were looking for them, but I'm game to pay cash. Really interested in some Sawyer Squaretops or similar.
Also looking for an oarsman's seat, preferably low-back.
I've never owned a rod with a wooden reel seat insert and don't know anyone who has, or does, own one.
I often fish from a kayak, and wondered, if you're prone to accidentally dunking the butt of a rod when fiddling around at the tip, is wood durable?
2 questions for you. Were the reel seats used in the factory built freshwater models of the Z Axis made by Struble? and now that they are gone what do custom rod builders use in their place on trout rods? Thanks
Not Fly Fishing Related:
Light wind Thursday. Fishing downriggers if someone wants to join me. Areas 9 and possibly 6. Heading out of Everett but could pick a person up on the West side of Puget Sound IF it's a convenient location (Pt No Point, Hansville, Glendale, etc)
May have to call it...
I am heading out to the sound sat or Sunday morning. I have an open seat on my boat. This will be the first time chasing src''s from a boat, so anyone that has experience I would love to learn and have the company. Let me know if anyone is interested.
My son will be graduating from college end of April and I've been thinking about a special graduation gift. He somehow got bit by the fly fishing bug, and thinks bamboo rods are great to cast too. Thankfully, my wife easily gave in when I told her I wanted to build a rod for his present. So...
Another forum member, SUSteelie, and I are floating the Cowlitz tomorrow (10/22) in my 14 foot raft. We're planning on swinging Blue Creek for an hour or two before floating down to Mission Bar. Anyone is welcome to come! Shoot me a PM if you're interested. We will be nymphing and swinging.
First post, so I apologize if this should have been posted in a different sub-forum.
I recently acquired a custom build of an older Sage blank. It's got an uplocking reel seat with a cork insert. I'm not 100% sure what material the reel seat is made from, but it looks like aluminum to my eye...
