BULL trout

BULL trout (9/10)



  1. Orvis offered personal engraving on some reels.
  2. All around good guy and owner of Hanson's Fly Shop with his Dad Wayne has passed away. I'm not 100% on the details but my thoughts go out to Trevor's family and friends at this difficult time.
  3. In New Zealand on the North Island I fished the The Waitahanui 'Picket Fence'. Not as many people as above but the same style of shoulder to shoulder. Fishing for rainbows and browns as they start to run out of the lake and up the river. I caught a few hot rainbows and the locals look at you strange when you release em.
  4. Last I heard he took off to BC. Scammed over a dozen locals and was doing some shady stuff with a product line he was carrying. I was hoping he was gone for good.
  5. My point was that people are quick to judge. So many possibilities and opinions. As an Admin I don't see an issue with the pic. But obviously another Admin acted on a complaint. It's a judgment call with no winners. Piss the OP off or piss off those who complain. The only ones happy are the local trolls.
  6. The funniest part is the fish was caught in a stocked Calgary community lake. It could have been bonked and on the BBQ so who gives a flying f about the pic.
  7. Welcome, You can't and won't go wrong using Max as a guide. I look forward to seeing how your trip goes.
  8. Sad Sad news. I wish all the best to Mike and his family going forward.
  9. I just talked with Chris and they won't be doing the expo for 2018. But he's hoping to have something in the works for 2019.
  10. I only fished the Taupo area so I'm not 100% sure on the rest of NZ "Strike indicators When you use a stike indicator, you can add only a dye or line floatant. A strike indicator is any synthetic or natural yarn and its means of attachment to the line or cast used by the person fishing as an aid to detecting a strike. It does not include any other material or any other object attached to the line or cast, or any synthetic or natural yarn to which has been added any material or chemical (other than a colour dye or surfactant line flotant preparation)." http://www.nzfishing.com/Regulations/RegulationsTaupo.htm
  11. I used it when I was in NZ since you can't use thingamabobers over there. It's pretty slick and worked very well. Couple local shops had them in stock.
