Brown Trout

Brown Trout (8/10)



  1. I know a lot of people are starting to make simple frames for their rafts just for that sake. I suspect those are a fine boat. 100lbs for the SRC isn't outrageously heavy, but its not something you'll enjoy hauling around by yourself or trying to stuff into the back of a truck.
  2. No experience with them, but i'll tell you right now that having proper oar locks would be an absolute game changer on those rafts. The shitty little pin style oar locks that are on the watermasters/scaddens/etc are chronically terrible (and a weak point if your oar hits anything). I broke one in the middle of the Kitimat which was an exciting few minutes..
  3. At the end of the day, the marketing machine wants to sell you a line that will just make you a better caster. Easiest way to make the average angler a better caster with zero worry about technique is to put a heavier line on the same rod. Its not going to change..
  4. Dont even know where to start looking, but would like to get an engraved reel for a friend's first kid.. Any ideas where to look that arent Etsy? Anyone on here do that kind of thing?
  5. Highwood at aldersyde is currently 72 F and got to 75 F on Sunday according to the government site, not an arbitrary reading by an angler. Forum members can do with that info what they want. It’s a shame that the ones on the Bow aren’t currently operating.
  6. Multiple posts on the bow river conditions have seen dead fish in last two weeks, as well as a couple people I’ve talked to.
  7. If we have to wait for a fish kill to stop fishing for wild fish, then you’ve missed the plot.
  8. Interesting to make an assumption as to why a shop paused guiding and try to associate it with everything but water temps. Good on FT for putting money and reputation up to protect the resource. Right.. this year is so normal. Back to back days of the hottest days recorded in Calgary are pretty standard. Whatever you gotta tell yourself to stay on the water. lots of opportunities in alpine lakes to fish cold clear water for stocked fish. Pretty good note from Patagonia strikes home. The wild fish in the Bow are our collective bank account, we should avoid adding to the debit part until we get some cool weather.
  9. Careful asking for Maxima at certain fly shops or they’ll be confused and tell you to ‘go to Bass Pro for that’. …. Ahhh experience…6 lb max and 10 lb can do 90% of the Bow.. add in 4x and you suddenly get to around 99%
  10. Frank is likely far too shallow to support overwintering trout (dont think it's over a m deep anywhere) and likely really poor water quality considering the only reason it hasnt dried up is that it combines High River's sewage and Cargill's waste water..
  11. That cat is frigging ripped.. No covid 20 on her!
  12. Took it in and he had it sorted nearly immediately and was happy to work on a merc! highly recommended
  13. Thanks. Wasn’t sure if Automarine did only Yamahas
