    I spend a fair amount of time out of cel range and on my own. I've been thinking about some kind of personal locator or satellite communicator for a while. Let me know if you have firsthand experience to report.

    Any of you guys using a hand held pinpoint burning tool for head work, etc? Looking at various types trying to decide which one....

    Hey all. New reel will be here Friday, and I've been thinking about trying a new shooting line forever. I currently use .032 Rio connect core. Basically a thin fly line. I am wondering if I could be casting better with a mono type. Full disclosure - I have no problem stretching my line...

    How's it working out for you. I bought the pro version back in the winter of 2016. I've had it replaced twice, and the third unit just broke on me again. Each time the steel ball and spring assembly fell apart and the bottom 3 sections fell off the handle section. I'm wondering if I'm...

    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...

    Starts @ 3:00 minutes. I was click baited into the title, then amazed when the guy makes a hook, ties a fly, build a rod and line/leader, then actually catches a fish!

    I was perusing the simplification of the WDFW fishing regulations and noticed this regulation is being eliminated. I also see that the regulation against "chumming" is being taken out. (5) When fishing for trout with bait, all trout that are lawful to possess and are equal to or greater than...

    I have seen so much buzz about these things on the Internet and there are just hundreds of YouTube videos on how to cook with them. I was curious about the concept because we have an infrared toaster and just love it. With the recent purchase of a new travel trailer I was interested in finding...

    I have been using Orvis Bankshot for about a year and I just got my hands on Quickshooter. I am just wondering what people are using these days?

    I got to fish a few days last weekend in the Okanogan with good friends and with two of my bamboo rods, a 9' SouthBend Cross Doublebuilt that handled some 15-18" browns and rainbows just fine, and a lighter 8-1/2' Phillipson Dry Fly Special that was maybe a little over-gunned against some small...

    I'm doing some end-of-summer cleanout and came across a Cortland 5wt multi-tip system. Running line with 4 tips: full floating, 2 different sink tips (fast and slower), and an intermediate ghost tip. Comes with a nice little pouch for the tips. I probably used this 6 times a decade or more ago...

    I'm enjoying an Irish whiskey right now, in preparation for an evening of crawfish etouffee (laissez le bon temps roulee!......), and I'm thinking it wouldn't be impossible to create this dish out backpacking. You need the butter or oil, and an equal part of flour for the roux, and if you have...

    I'm looking at getting a 2 person inflatable that I can put 2 people in, fish from, run class 3 rapid, and carry gear for an overnight trip. It needs to be able to fit in the back of my silverado truck as I don't have storage for a trailer. I want to spend under $3k. I have been told...

    I've been intrigued over the years with anglers who carry only a few patterns in their fly boxes/wallets, compared to the myriad of flies I typically carry. I'm gonna give this article some serious thought: http://www.flyfisherman.com/fly-tying/yvon-chouinard-lessons-from-a-simple-fly/
