  1. Yeah I've talked to Tim a couple times and tried to buy a couple of used ones from Spey Pages. I had a chat with Bob Meiser and he actually recommended the Bridge lines. I think OFF sells them locally. I'm looking for used lines first to try and save a few bucks (and can re-sell them for minimal loss if I don't end up liking it or wrong weight) before purchasing a new line.
  2. I've got the Skagit side covered for this rod and I'm now looking for a mid-long belly line. Does anyone local have something in the 60-65ft, 630-730 grain range sitting around collecting dust they'd be willing to part with? I'm looking for Gaelforce, Netxcast, Ballistic, CND, Carron, SGS, Snowbee or RIO lines preferably. I've tried a 55' 8/9 Ballistic Vector (which is money on my 13'6" 8wt) but it feels a bit light and short for the bigger rod. I would also be interested in a shorter Scandi line as well. I've been scouring Spey Pages but it's tough right now trying to get people to ship from
  3. I recently finished my Meiser 15' 7/8/9 HC build just in time for my trip up northern BC. It turned out much better than expected! I really enjoyed the whole process from start to finish. I bought the blank and the builders kit from Bob and turned the handle myself on a drill mounted in a vise. I've since added some oil to the burl portions of the handle to darken it up a bit. I've also got a 13' 6/7 MKS to build now as well!
  4. Wow now that is talent tying those by hand! Thanks for sharing
  5. I took my Fish Cat Pontoon out on it's maiden voyage the other night. Floated from Stoney Trail to Shouldice in the NW, took about 2.5 hours with a few stops. I found it very hard to fish from the pontoon while floating even using fins. I don't know what I would have done if I hooked up, would have been pretty funny to watch! Those raft style ones look a little better as you don't have to beach them to stand up and fish. I'll have to try again and practice controlling it a bit more using the fins. Let me know how you make out.
