    South Boat Launches

    Policemen flats... Is that a 2nd boat ramp that was added? If so has anyone used it as a Put in or take out yet. Even tho the rocks has been taken out, it’s still a little tricky take out at end of float due to fast running current.

    Ultralight Reels, Too Light?

    I don't have a formula for you...but to answer you question " Too Light " yes! I use a Sage One 5wt with a 7/8 nautilus FWX, 6wt streamer fly line. And find the balance Perfect with great overall light feel... When I tried my buddy's 5/6 nautilus FWX, 5wt fly line with the Sage One 5wt, founded it to be overall to light!! Mind you I'm using this set-up for chucking streamers all day... And for the record, there's very little difference in weight between both reels. Not sure how much more weight if any, by going one size up on the fly line either. Nautilus FWX 5/6, 3.8oz. 7/8, 4.1oz. Great reels...

    Your Favorite Dry Fly Rod

    TFO BVK 5wt... For the amount of cost with lifetime warranty, great feel and great response I'm very happy with it...
  12. Hello, Would appreciate any advice or heads up information with anyone with experience and what to expect on a float from bow falls in Banff to Highway1 in Canmore in the month of late June/early July sometime, it would be my first. I will be using a 16 foot fibreglass Drift Boat which I have two years experience with floating the lower bow from Glenmore to McKinnon. This would be a family pleasure/fishing float. By the sounds of things, fishing will be tough going threw this stretch! I'm more interested in the float it itself through the mountains with my sons. One of my concerns are the channels I have to navigate through and which channels not to float threw. Going with the channel with the most size and flow of river should keep us safe. Any information on what kind of fishing to expect throughout our float would also be nice. I understand I will need a park fishing license up to the park gates. Thank you for any involvement on this subject Porto

    Sage Pulse 7Wt

    Hello, Looking for some feedback/advise on a streamer rod for Bow River and area. My Orvis 8wt is to much rod and heavy for the amount of casting I'm doing with big streamers in this area.. I'm looking at the Sage Pulse 790-4 and 7100-4 as options. It's a new rod in market and reviews are good. Most are saying its a fast action but a couple reviews have it at fast/mid action. Hoping for fast action, higher end with what I'm use to at a reasonable price ($575). One other question, I'm leading towards a 10' rod over the 9'. Thoughts on length? Any feedback or advice on other models and same price range or cheaper. Highly appreciated. Thanks
