    Floated the Sauk/Skagit from hippie hole to Faber’s yesterday. A beautiful spring day. Seeing everything beginning to turn green reminded me of something I heard Doug Rose say years ago and I paraphrase, when you see that tell tale green twinge on the trees as the buds and new leaves begin to...

    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...

    Visited the Eugene Cascades Raptor Center last week. They took out an osprey and I managed a few up close pics. Pretty intense birds! I think we can all relate to the osprey, and we can all agree that they win when it comes to fishing efficiency! That last picture pierces right through your soul!

    Just a heads up...I decided to get out and do a little fishing while I was in MT and got hung up in traffic. Man, talk about herd mentality! It was worth it in the end though. Water temps were still low and we lost clarity as the day progressed but all in all a good day with a few nice fish...

    Who's getting out of the reloading game. Looking to get started and figured I'd see if your dust collecting gear was ready to rehome. I'll be loading some or all of these: 9, 40, 10, 45, 556, 270, 6.5

    Lets see, today the sea-surface temp here was 46 F and the air is in the low 40's. Bottom fishing opens up on Mar 10, but its still too cold for me to don a 3mm farmer john wetsuit with extra layers, and go kayak fishing here along the Jetties. I like everything to be above 50 F, preferably...

  8. Fly Tying
    I've had a few request for a updated SBS for the Squimp so thought I'd do one as I've been stuck at home with a cold. Nick Clayton's been tying a really nice variant and I have no doubt it works just as well and is easier to tie, this is just how I've been tying them. Hook- #6 or #8 your...

    Got out to run the dogs and shoot some farmed birds prior to the wild bird season opening on the 15th. One mornings shoot near Brooks, southern Alberta. Birds were big bluebacks.

    The Western Washington pheasant season opens Saturday. Every year I've gone out on the Saturday mornings, but this year I'm going to get licensed for Sunday mornings in October. Has anyone ever noticed a trend as to which weekend morning is the better one for the first 2 or 3 weekends of the...

    I know this has been posted before in several different threads but I'm just going to remind those of us who've hit the "golden years" (meaning 62 or above) that a good deal is still to be had on a cheap pass (which lasts your lifetime) that allows access to a number of areas under federal...

    I don't hear much chatter about fishing the Skykomish River on this forum as I do other rivers in the area (Cedar/Snoqualmie). Am I just looking at the wrong forum? Does this river fish well during the late summer/fall?

    I've been fishing for decades but never in a float tube. It seems that here on Fidalgo Island the fishing is very limited but with a float tube it seems it could be spectacular. So a Cumberland tube from Walmart ($180) Redington waders ($120), air pump, net, pfd, and fins. Seems like under $500...

    Orvis Bellevue is organizing a second (much larger) clean up project on the Cedar River. This project was planned in conjunction with the one I put together back in May, but with a much more sponsorship behind it. I encourage everyone to make it out for this one - with lower flows and several...
