  1. Today
  2.  have a RIO Scandi Short 240 gr. If still looking $55.00. Hasn’t been used much due to the fact I don’t use the rod I bought it for much, so still in like new condition.

  3. Last week
  4. You must now fill out and deposit a self-certification permit for non-motorized watercraft and water recreational gear in Banff National Park. You can get the permit and more information here.
  5. Probably not recommended as a take-out point.
  6. I finally upgraded my ancient tube for an Outcast Stealth Pro, frameless pontoon a couple of weeks ago. So far I have only used it on still waters. I love it. - it fits in it's bag (not included but a good accessory buy) with room to spare - it fits in the back of my car easily (weighs 35 lbs) - inflates easily in about 5-6 minutes with the foot pump (aftermarket accessory) - one is seated well above and out of the water. Fins or no fins, the boat is moved easily with the built in oars. I also use a Scotty anchor lock and a 10 pound pyramid anchor. - plenty of storage
  7. I had trouble with a brand new, unused for 10+ years Ross Reel (CLA 6). I sent it back this past winter and they absolutely treated me like a king. Communication was superb, I was just so impressed. I have a bunch of Hardy reels, some 50+ years old. To date, no requirements for any service at all. A fantastic array of quality stuff.
  8. Earlier
  9. Nice, fewer and fewer companies stand behind their product. Had a small plate fall out a Hardy reel of mine, they sent a replacement no probleml
  10. My old Hardy Ultralite DD 5000 reel died earlier this year. The spool was bent and rubbing on the frame (probably my fault) and the disc drag system stopped working properly (not my fault). This reel was well used and probably had >500 fishing days on it. I returned this reel for warranty repair in the middle of May and they just shipped me a complete replacement reel. Cost to me was US$35. It is sure nice to have a company stand behind their product and provide excellent customer service.
  11. This week, my guest is Carolyn Parker of River Run Outfitters in Branson, Missouri [51:39]. Carolyn is a 20-year veteran of guiding tailwaters and a recipient of the Orvis Endorsed Program's Lifetime Achievement Award. Her specialty is fishing tailwaters, and you'll learn a lot about how to deal with fluctuating water levels and how to fish a river that has mostly midges and crustaceans instead of mayflies and caddisflies. In the Fly Box this week, we have lots of questions and some long-winded answers, including: Why don't more people use furled leaders? When you say "don't land your fly lin
  12. I would suggest adding this information to Google Reviews of this company. It seems that they are taking deposits on loaders and then running away without installing... https://www.google.ca/maps/place/4Boys+Manufacturing,+Inc./@49.9145025,-119.4046814,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x537df3e4a846b911:0x23341b71438e9711!8m2!3d49.9145025!4d-119.4024927
  13. Home Depot, they come in interlocking squares, you can trim to fit
  14. I'm looking for a business that would custom make a set of snap in carpets for my Koffler Rocky Mountain Trout drift boat. Looking to protect fly lines from being stepped on, quite things down, etc.
  15. This week my guest is Neville Crabbe of the Atlantic Salmon Federation [39:13]. He tells us the details of a major project to eradicate smallmouth bass from the famous Miramichi River, one of the most productive salmon rivers in the world. We all love smallmouths, but they don't belong in this river system and were introduced by misguided anglers. In the Fly Box this week, we have some great questions, including: How should I fish an emerger? Can I fish it by itself? Any tips on catching grass carp? What's on Tom's bucket list for destinations? Will packets of desiccant gel help keep my fly b
  16. Reach out to Rex Thomas on facebook or instagram. I'm pretty sure he has one
  17. I was considering selling my drift boat and purchasing one of these in the three seater version.I really want to have the portability to take a nice inflatable camping and also float the river.I was wondering if anyone has this model here in town?Im very curious if you would feel cramped?It would be the wife kid and dog.Would you feel safe in a lake if the wind came up?Would you purchase better oars than what comes with? How is the buoyancy with three people in it?how is the rod storage you can get with them?Any other positive or negatives you have? LOL thanks for your imput. LOL
  18. What a great idea. Good luck and I hope to be in a position to rent, not this season due to other bucket-list plans, but perhaps next year.
  19. My guest this week is Phil Rowley [55:20], author of the just-released book The Orvis Guide to Stillwater Trout Fishing and fellow host for The New Fly Fisher TV show. Phil is a stillwater genius and he helps us untangle the confusion around fly lines for fishing in lakes and ponds, and exactly which lines you need. In the Fly Box this week, we have some great questions, including: I have switched from a medium to fast action rod. Should I set the hook differently? How do I fish beaver ponds? Questions about Euro nymphing with a standard 9-foot, 5-weight rod and reel Do brown trout move in an
  20. Thinking about renting out my drift boat as it's been doing nothing but collecting dust the last few years. 17' Hyde XL pro series low profile. PM for rates and logistics. Thanks.
