  1. Anyone have gear go missing?

    Despite my suspicions, I emailed him to see if I could purchase and have him ship. He was willing to ship if I paid by EMT but not by PayPal. Interestingly enough, some of the low prices he had up there have since been increased.
  2. Saw this post on Kijiji, the prices are suspiciously low... https://www.kijiji.ca/v-fishing-camping-outdoor/strathcona-county/fly-fishing-blow-out-bonanza-rods-reels-waders-boots/1378254970?enableSearchNavigationFlag=true
  3. Jeez some people are so clueless and ignorant, good job getting him busted for it. Hopefully the fines end up being a sufficient deterrent in the future.

    Glad to see the Ram remaining catch and release, would have been a shame to see retention allowed given how the fishery has turned out.

  7. Ultralight Reels, Too Light?

    The length of the rod also makes a big difference, a 7' rod is going to take way lighter of a reel to balance it than a 9' rod. Keep in mind how much lighter the 7' blank will be, combined with the fact that its center of gravity is going to be much closer to the handle, resulting in even less weight needed. I've often found that 3-5 times the blank weight is a good size for the reel depending on the rod and personal preference.
  8. Can you please clear your PMs and message me? If someone knows Gustuphson and he doesn't come on here much anymore, can you please have him contact me? Thanks!
  9. Skinny Water

    Very nice, I wonder if it was one of your flies in a tree that I left one beside the other day.

    Great pictures, it's hard to beat fishing on the Canadian shield.

  13. I have then and really like them, tough, rugged, comfortable boots. I've had no issues with the boa system.
  14. Worm Nymph Rig

    Try some maxima fluorocarbon, it's all I use anymore.
  15. I can't comment specifically on the injury, but can offer a couple suggestions for reducing impact. If you don't already use a Spey rod on the salmon and steelhead rivers, give one a try. Also, try using shorter single hand rods as they significantly reduce swing weight, resulting in being able to use a lighter reel (the rod ends up lighter too)
