Fly Fishing General Discussions / Flyrods on airplanes
« on: December 03, 2018, 07:21:40 PM »
Hi guys,
I was wondering if you could share you knowledge about taking flyrods on airplanes.
I am fortunate enough to be able to go to Terrace this December to tey to catch a steelhead or two.
I want to take my speyrod and a single hand with me, both tubes are aroumd 43". I am not sure if The tubes will be allowed as carey ons because of their lengths. A friend suggested to take a large duffle bag and put the tubes im there with the restbof my stuff.
How do you guys do it?
Thanks for the info

Stillwater Fly Fishing / Best way to secure the boat
« on: April 24, 2018, 09:51:40 PM »
Hey all, i was wondering how do you guys secure the trailer and boat to the truck when you are done with a day of fishing on a lake and you go to sleep in a motel and you leave the rig in the motel's parking lot for the night?
I heard motors bei g stolen even if they are bolted to the boat. I assume i can get some locks and chain the trailer to the trick and the boat to the trailer but I was just wondering if there is a better solution out there.
Thanks guys,

Rivers and Stream Fly Fishing / Fort St John flyfishing
« on: March 14, 2018, 08:26:41 PM »
Hi guys,
I was wondering if anyone is from Fort St John area or knows what the river fishing is like up there right now or the next few weeks.
I will be going there for a family visit and I read about the Pine River and a few other ones that I would love to try. Are they all frozen still or is there any that would worth driving to? I will definitely be taking my fly rods and hoping that my nymphs and streamers will work on the graylings and bulls. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks guys

River Competition Angling Discussions / Are 2 rods allowed
« on: March 05, 2018, 09:03:28 PM »
Hi guys,
Could you please tell me if 2 rods (Assembled and ready to go) allowed on the local river competitions? I thought it wasn't, but on the deep freeze comp in February I noticed that some guys carried around 2 assembled rods. I know that I could look it up in the FIPS rules, but this way some other rookies could learn from it.
Thank you guys,

Fly Fishing General Discussions / old 2 stroke vs new 4 stroke outboard
« on: January 18, 2018, 07:03:16 PM »
Hello guys,
As some of you may know I got the bug for lake fishing last season so I went and purchased a 2014 alumacraft 14' jonboat, trailer, and older motor combo. I haven't had any of it on the water yet but I can not wait. My question is about the motor.
It's a 9.9 2 stroke short shaft Evinrude. By the model number I searched it up it looks like it's from 1975. It looks clean, It doesn't look like a 43! year old motor.  When I purchased the set up the seller started up the motor( with the earmuffs) , started on the 4th pull, we let it run for a bit then shut it off, I was happy with it. After a few days I I kept thinking  who knows what had happened to the motor in 43 years, if it was serviced properly, cleaned regularly after possible salt water use an so on. I figured  I should sell it and get a new motor, start it fresh.  I actually got a buyer for the motor already after just a few days of advertising it. I keep reading and watching reviews and test of new motors for the last few days and I am not sure what to do. Some say the old 2 strokes are the best, easy and cheap to service if needed but not as good on fuel, smokes a lot not so great for the environment. On the other hand New 4 strokes have many more parts, can break down easier, cost much more to maintain, but of course more economic on fuel and quiet and they come with factory warranty. For what I would get for the old motor plus $1000 bucks would get me a brand new 6hp Mercury, or about $1600 a 9.9Mercury.  I started my old motor today, again started on the 4th pull, run a bit rough but  it was cold and that's how 2 strokes run usually I guess. After I shut it off started on the first pull every time so it got me thinking, it might just be a good motor that I am trying to sell for no good reason. What do you guys think ? OF course I have oars on the boat, but I don't want to get stranded and have motor problems on the water If I drive down to Merritt or Kamloops for a day or two, I just want to enjoy fishing. I'm pretty sure some of you guys went through the same or similar situation. What did you guys do, and do you think you made a good decision. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys!

River Competition Angling Discussions / vibram sole repair
« on: October 05, 2014, 11:31:37 PM »
Hello guys,
I was wondering if you guys have any suggestions. I have a pair of Simms wadingboots with vibram soles. On one of the boots the sole is half way detached from the boot. I was wondering if you guys know of any adhesive that would be good to use on that to do the repair.
Any suggestion would be appreciated.
Thank you!

Rivers and Stream Fly Fishing / How to catch them in slow water
« on: May 07, 2014, 08:15:58 AM »
Hi guys,
I was wondering if you could give me some suggestions. Many times happened to me that I am fishing a back water where the flow is really slow and I see pools of salmon fries swimming around me and the trouts are jumping around eating them. I've tried so many fry pattern but i usually end up moving to faster water where the patterns i use usually work. Most likely in slow water the trout has time to notice that my fly is fake and leaves it alone where in fast water they hit everything that somewhat looks like food. Any suggestions? What to use, how to strip to catch these guys. It breaks my heart walking out of the river and not being able to catch these fish:).
Thnx guys
