    I'm going to give beach fishing for sea runs a try for 1st time. I've read some different articles and parts of books... been to fly shops to buy flies and get advice. Not looking for secrets, just some basic rules or knowledge I should be aware of before setting out. Thanks in advance for any...

    Hello, I am trying to figure out when SRC spawn on the Kitsap Peninsula. I have been told early winter, mid winter, late winter, early spring, and now told that it won't be until probably end of April that the SRC come out of the small creeks/rivers. The chum fry have been flushed out by recent...

    2018 has been extremely busy for me so far, and especially so the last couple of weeks. I have had so much stuff going on I just haven't got to fish a whole lot. I mean, I don't have it as bad as those Montana boys, as this was day number 19 on the water in 2018 by my count, but that's pretty...

    Hey Everyone, Got the news from the mechanic that its time to trade in the 2003 Silverado 2500HD Duramax. I've done my research and there are several newer Duramax trucks in Puyallup that I'm planning to test drive on Saturday. Possibly one in Bremerton, also. Inventory is low in Oregon for my...

    So my first time competing casting at the Long Beach Casting Club last weekend. Entered as a novice division with about 12 other newbie casters. There were seniors, women and open division casters that attracted a bunch of Spey O Rama (SOR) folks like Tommy A (flew in from Norway), Jim...

    Hi All, A friend and I are taking my new (to me) 14' NRS raft out Thursday. Our plan is to float from Barrier to Blue Creek. Everything I've read implies that this is a pretty straightforward float with little technical difficulty. I've had an Assault XX that I've floated the Snoqualmie and...
  10. Fly Tying
    If I hadn't done it I wouldn't have believed I could actually tie a #22 fly. This image shows a bunch of BWO emergers sitting on a quarter. With a decent vise and a magnifier it's fairly simple. No 'ship in a bottle' obsessing, either. Of course, not living and fishing in Colorado, I draw the...

    So I went hunting for the first time yesterday. I tried to hunt Grouse off a gated logging road at the top of the pass on I 90. A couple of mistakes 1) I brought my dog who is not a bird dog . He got to far a head of me and flushed two birds off the gated road before I was able to get a clean...

    As I am starting to put some of my fishing equipment away for the year I keep thinking I must get some new stuff one of these years. Thank goodness I just got a catalog from a fly shop that I can purchase equipment from. Those dirty patched, all over waders that I have had for several years...

    Took the tube out again today, this should prove i'm in the sea! Tried a few honey holes I know, nothing! Seen a walleye take off when i lifted my fly out of the water, must have followed it, fly was half the size of the fish! Wind started to pick up! My van was a fare way away, go those rocks...

    The wind gods decided to show mercy on me this weekend. It was the first time this year during my time off that I could fish the Gorge without fighting hurricane winds. I decided to fish a couple of different lakes. I launched at the first lake around 2:15. I decided to throw a 3/0 popper and...

    I ordered a boat from clacka late June and they said it would have been done around the first or second week of August. Still haven't heard anything from them besides when I see your boat I'll let you know. How long did it take your boat to get made? The wait is killing me haha

    I had an interesting experience yesterday evening (July 31st) fishing a very small stream on the east slope of the Cascades above 3,000 feet. When I was there for the first time eight days earlier, I was catching a pretty little westslope cutt (or five) in every likely-looking pool and pocket...

    Hey all, This weekend a friend and I bought plane tickets to Portland from NYC. This has become sort of a habit for me.. Plan a spur of the moment trip and then turn to the members of this site to steer me on to some awesome experiences. You've helped me out tremendously in previous trips to...
