Topics I've Started

Hello from Ottawa -Gatineau

15 January 2019 - 11:04 AM

Hi all, my name is Carol (I am a man not a woman), I am from Ottawa -Gatineau , I arrived in Canada one year ago and I have Romanian origins. Please pardon my English and feel free to ask or correct my mistakes if something I wrote is hard to understand  ( also I used to be a lawyer therefore there is a tendency for long elaborated phrases in my writing). 

I am both a fisherman and a rodbuilder so I have my hands full in winter as well . I started fishing when I was 6 (I’ll be forty this year) and I started building rods in a more serious manner in 2011. I only fish with lures and I mainly fish rivers (not such a fan of still water ) and I mainly target big predators . I only use lures and premium spinning gear (custom rods I build myself and top notch reels) because I seek pleasure in fishing and I found out that the baitcasters are not for me and my style of fishing. I am more of a “quality over quantity” type of guy and I prefer a long range -stealthy approach to a fishing spot. I've closed my rodbuilding website since it was in Romanian language and I can no longer build rods for them, but you can still see my work (those of you who are curios) on my Facebook rodbuilding page (se website in my profile) or on the US rodbuilding forum. My rodbuilding philosophy is that a fishing rod is just a refined, specialized tool which must bring you best possible performance and comfort a tool can get to it’s user (so not much bling-bling on the rods I build which I try to keep clean and simple).  

My fishing partner is usually my wife (when is not to cold outside) and we most often fish from the bank or from our small inflatable (again, stealthy approach). She usually out fishes me too  :razz: 

This is it about me in a few words so I wish you all tight lines!
