Re: Sungai Tiang

What a great project to be involved in!
I’ve seen more of these local supported fisheries popping up in media and I think they’re a pretty amazing way to balance resource protection, use, and local profit.

Re: The evolution of Catch and Release

PS great to see you again, Harps! :cool: I missed this place! I plan on coming back more often... there’s a lot to catch up on! Jon, that is an interesting concept, and could be very well thought out. C&R is a great fisheries management tool, one that is largely responsible for the prevalence of fi...

Re: The evolution of Catch and Release

Paul, those are great practices, and I wish more people followed them here. When I started only a few snobby anglers caught and released, but because of the size limits many fish were thrown back as they were too small (but we rarely followed the regulations, though). Even if we had more fish than w...

Re: Saskatoon, Canada

I had Walleye in Arkansas at night below the White River Dam. It was one of the strangest experiences of my life, there is so much mist coming off the water you cannot see more than about 20 feet at its thickest. Walleye are such buggers to handle in the light... In the dark - no thanks! I do get t...

Re: Saskatoon, Canada

Walleye are pretty much Zander... they're very interesting fish, but not always the best on a fly. Their teeth and spines make handling them horrible, especially in the cold when you don't realize you've been impaled. WALL.jpg Goldeye are a smaller fish, but fun in the evening on dryflies. https://w...

Re: Saskatoon, Canada

It's been too long since I've been on the board! Hi Morten, Saskatoon is a little far from me, and I haven't spent much time up that way. You could contact folks in the Kilpatrick Fly Fishing club - http://www.kilpatrickflyfishers.com/ or the folks a couple hours north in the Northern Waters Club - ...

Lars on Griffith Gnat

http://www.sexyloops.com/index.php/ps/griffiths-gnat Great page. I love this pattern- it’s an underrated staple in my Fly box. But, I think the grizzly hackle adds to the sense of moving or buzzing wings - I can’t say I’ve tied one without at least a grizzly hackle mixed with another colour. Does an...

Thoughts on jazzing up the Board?

Sexyloops meet for September 22nd... I'd try to plan to be in Europe for that... Farrah wants to go to the UK for the fall. On the board, I think a lot of folks are just more interested in the low "energy cost" and instant gratification that Facebook provides... plus you generally get an echo chambe...

Shoes/Trainers to wade in

I've been fishing in a pair of Astral Kayak shoes - great sticky rubber on the bottom! They've been good for going up and down wet rocks and as good or better on greasy substrate as a pair of rubber soled wading boots (without cleats). And I don't have to take them off before hoping in my truck and ...
