  1. Can't help with moveable markers - I actually use fixed markers at 10, 15, 20 & 25 feet on my Type 5 and Type 7 full sink lines. A single orange at 10 ft; single white at 15 ft; two orange at 20 ft; two white at 25 ft. This YouTube video shows how to whip finish onto the line. I make the markers with two layers of thread, 1/2 to 3/4 in long and covered them with UV epoxy. Fixed hang markers I would then use one of my guides in conjunction with one of the markers as a reference point. Since the markers were 5 ft apart, there is always 1 marker somewhere in the guides of my 9
  2. Washington State has closed all recreational fishing until at least April 8. https://wdfw.wa.gov/news/wdfw-closes-recreational-fishing-statewide-wake-governors-order-stay-home-stay-healthy
  3. A few weeks ago, I saw both the Calgary Police and Calgary Fire boats on the river at the same while I was fishing. There was a very distinct difference in the way the Police boat was handled compared to the idiots in the Fire boat. The Police boat looked like it was being handled by adults and was travelling at a reasonable speed paying attention to the other users on the river. The Fire boat seems oblivious to other users and appeared to be intentionally driving at high speed by other users. Not very good PR for Fire Department.
  4. I've got a Smith Creek Rod Holder as well on my sling pack. I was concerned the foam might get crushed down with use, but it is holding up great. Very effective gadget!
  5. This is the net hung over the main compartment, from the d-ring, on the Patagonia Stealth Atom sling. The rod holder straps work great for my rolled up wading jacket. Ken
  6. I've been using the previous generation of the Patagonia Stealth Atom sling for a couple of years and have been happy with it's flexibility. Lots of room to hang crap from the strap as you can see! I keep a small fly box in my left shirt pocket and between that and the fly patch, I don't end up having to swing the main compartment around very often. I like the fact that the water bottle pouch on the Patagonia slings are on the outside of the main compartment. I can get my water bottle without swinging the main compartment around. The Smith Creek rod holder is convenient for fly changes i
  7. What a pleasant change! Not as dramatic as the reduced numbers of people/quads in the West Castle - Carbondale - Lynx area, but a huge step in the right direction. Ken
  8. I've been using Dr. Scholl's Custom Fit Orthotics in my boots, but I don't know if they are sophisticated enough for your issues. I just rince and dry when I wash off the boot felts after fishing. Ken
  9. I bought a 13 year old Outcast Fish Cat Streamer 8 ft pontoon a couple of years ago and did not have any problems. I used a 30 lb Minn Kota on it with a smaller 35 A-hr battery. The smaller battery lasts 1.5 to 2 hours at med. speeds and is fine for changing locations. I'd get a bigger battery if doing a lot of trolling. I didn't have any issues at all using the motor. I had to order a few replacements items from Outcast and the turnaround was very quick - exchange rate sucked! I found Outcast to be a great company to deal with. I also put a Launching Gear wheel on the pontoon which wa
  10. Aquabatics across from Canada Olympic Park behind Shell Gas Station usually keeps some.
  11. I've had the 120 for 3 years and wouldn't be without it. I use it on a float tube. As mentioned, the side scanner and temperature gauge are very useful. I find the down scanner most useful for sorting out structure.
