  2. It’s been quite a few years since I’ve put in the time exploring the east slopes of the Rockies, but I rectified that this year. For the past couple of months, I have spent at least two days a week walking and wading a beautiful mountain stream, trying to learn some of its secrets. It’s been food for the soul and I have been rewarded with awesome scenery, beautiful fish and nature at its finest

  3. I'm just writing some new rules for the Buy and Sell area to be in line with other forums. Looking for feedback on any thoughts. We have had quite a few new users with only one or two posts placing ads and never being heard from again. I would prefer something like 30 days membership and 20 posts.

  8. 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. Hey guys,Ive been on an editing tear lately as i try to pump out as much content from this past fall as i can. This clip was shot over the past couple months as i chased steelhead here on the great lakes. I put a bunch of time in this fall and was able to shake hands with a few great fall run fish on the swing. It been a while since i had the time to actually chase the fall run so that was great to be able to do!Am I the only one that looses that many fish or??Thanks for watching,Dan

  14. This fish is laying in the water...just saying. Between my ultra shitty home life and dwindling eyesight I haven’t fished, golfed or done much of anything in the last three years...other than drink myself to sleep every night. anyways I caught this little fish yesterday and took a pic of it. That just hasn’t happened in awhile.

  15. If you do go after them remember it is prohibited to be in the possession of live crayfish in the province of Ab, and they must be killed upon capture.

  16. I have been using 6lb Maxima for dry fly fishing for years. Stuff never breaks and still fits in the eye of the #18 scud hooks I use for little dries. I don't nymph in rivers, but I do bobber fish in lakes a lot and do lots of streamer fishing. I have been using Seaguar Invizix fluorocarbon (10, 12lb) for a number of years and it is fantastic stuff. I am a firm believer is using as heavy a tippet as possible so that you can put tons of pressure on fish to get them in quickly. I don't use a net, but good quality, strong tippet allows to bring fish to hand quickly.

  17. A net. I forgot to take my net while wading last week and I lost two flies because of it. The fish were right at my feet and I was reaching down to grab them to remove the hook, the fish shook their heads and snapped the leader/Tippet with the tight line and rod. I hate to know there are fish out there with body jewelry when I could've done something different to prevent it. I feel it's one of the most overlooked items for a fisherman. Glad to see it included.

  23. All great stuff, good start on the seasons flies GGP, beauty ties as usual. I love the Yellow Sally Bow, the bead will sink the back end and be really attractive to cruising trout. Great Lighting bug, its a killer. Thinking of tying a lot more small flies, #18 and #20. Have samples of midges, Tricos and BWO's and have been fooling with some new Emerger patterns and some simpler Dries with silhouettes in mind. Does anyone else Tie to suit particular rivers or areas? I am a firm believer that if fish have seen the same pattern over and over they learn not to touch. But more unusual patterns still fool. These days I only fish Dries and Emergers, prefer to stalk and match the hatch. Been putting together groupes in boxes in regard to season also.

  31. This is called 'Tim's Alternator' and was kinda fun to tie on a Size 16 3x long after all the 20's I've been squinting at! Can't really tell from the pic, but the abdomen is a pearl Uni-mylar, which gives it a nice shimmer. I'm down to my last straggles of peacock herl, however, so one can imagine a fuller thorax! Might trim the bottom of the rusty hackle...but might not.

  32. It was inevitable that it would end up here in southern Alberta, in spite of any attempts to prevent it. It's like trying to stop a common cold virus from spreading. Question is, where to from here?

  35. Turn the waders inside out. Then, go to a dark room like your bathroom and shine a flashlight from inside the legs of the waders. You will see all of the holes, instantly. Use a black marker to draw a small circle around any holes. Apply sealant to the inside of the waders. If the socks leak they will need to be replaced.

  38. I got them through Amazon.ca but I don't believe I paid what they are quoting now when I checked . Maybe I did but I do know I said piss on it after the third time I went down in a dirtyassed wet pile. I turn 70 in a couple weeks and don't bounce worth a damn anymore.

  39. Finally got my MRI on my knee from a crash on the rocks as I was wearing vibram or whatever Patagonia calls theirs. Get results next week. They suck on the bow but are better on streams that rocks are clean. Ive said it before ... can they not add some kind of grit into the rubber to add traction, as sole wears down new grit is exposed. A course silica .
