Flies for Spring

30 January 2013 - 12:24 PM

I'm in the process of tying up some nymphs stones and caddis. I'll screen the trib bottom to see what's living there first, I just hope I've tied something that comes close to what's there.

Fly Tying Course

08 January 2013 - 09:54 PM

I noticed that a few of you have shown an interest in tying your own flies. I share your thrill of tying and collecting material and being creative with the bobbin in hand. My first flies look like Kamakasi bugs that flew head first into a brick wall.......lol.

Is anyone interested in joining me at Wilson's for their beginner course in Fly Tying? The course is $50 for 3 hours of instruction for a group of 8 max. I called to see when, but mostly it's held on a Saturday from 9:30-12:30pm. I'm still trying to get more details about material and tools....etc.

Let's get a group together for the Queen St. Let me know if you're interested, PM or post.

Thanks.

Sportsmanship

I've had the pleasure to have met and fished with a few great guys, and a very few I won't see again. No one is perfect but no one wants to be with an obnoxious, condecending, or rude, arrogant jerk, least of all me. Here is a link how we can all be a good sportsman.

This is especially necessary with the highly competitive steelhead season that is upon us. Letting it go to your head?

Skunk:Catch

19 November 2012 - 11:29 AM

Hey all
I was just wondering what your catch to skunk ratio is for steel. Some of you more skilled guys would fair well. Since I've just caught my first and only I'd say my ratio would be 1 fish in 8 outings/attempts, maybe more, so I'd be 8/1 or just 8.

Is it still too soon for steel? Or does it seem there are less fish coming up due maybe to less stocking? Or have most of them returned to the lake?

The steel come up to feed on salmon eggs, right? Well they are done so some steel might be locked in the streams and can't go back down and are waiting for the spring to spawn. Maybe I just expected lots of steel in the streams.

What do you think? What's your ratio?

Hey all

This Wednesday, I'm driving a friend out there so she can see her dying aunt. I don't know the rest of the family so I'll be fishing. I've never been or dipped a line there before. Anyone know some good spots for bows or anything else?

Thanks, keep your line tight.
