  1. Well I took Neil " RVing and Fly Fishing " up at Swan Lake . We had a great time , I got the Boat Rigged up then I got Neil rigged up and in the Boat . I tied on his favored Fly " The Idaho Nymph " and not even a 15 minutes later Bang ?? Neil hooks in to a 6 lbs + Rainbow which took all the line and most of the backing . What a awesome fight , well we both did well the first day out . The Picture of Neil holding the Big one didn't take but I got him Fighting the fish , he's 86 yr's old I think the picture says it all .

Way different then single handed FlyFishing the " Switch Rod " it's awesome . Way more Torque with the Scanadi Line by " Snow Bee " , But the Cast is everything with this type of Line .

I'll have to tell you too hang on to what you have at " NLFT " It's a " learning Club " this is very rare in deed . For $40.00 dollar's at leased you get something back + Friend's . I tried to make understanding of a (1) a month meeting out here and a $50.00 dollar Membership and never tied a Fly go figure . So I joined " PNW FlyFisher's " for free and they have a great Web Site , so much Info . Yes Free , and there Located in" Nanaimo " What a Great Bunch very knowledgeable " Young guy's " and They Tie Fly's ! And Built Fly Rod's . Yup amazing Club , they Fish Everything from , " Steelhead " Rainbow , Coho , Bass and have Fly Swap's and Outing's + Tie Great looking Fly's . So I will be your " West Coast Reporter " I have been learning how to catch the " Steelhead " and " COHO " and " Pink " Salmon and I picked up a switch FlyRod . There Bigger Rod's and a total different way of casting but I'm getting there it's " Practice " great fun . I'm all so Learning to tie the fly's for all the salmon out here , Yup more money .

  21. Yes I'm getting out some , every time the weather permit's . Here in Nanaimo BC , it's only been very cold a couple of week's at a temperature " - 0 " bur bur , He He . I love it no snow and at Christmas we had just a 1mm but the rain makes up for it . The COHO fishing was done before it got started , I'm trying to get uses to the wet condition so is the " Dog " . There is a couple of Fly Fishing club's out here , which I have joined . So now it's time to get to know the " Island Fisher " If it's +8 degree's out and wind's are down with little rain it's time to go fishing " Stream's for " Steelhead " winter run or lake fishing with the Jon Boat ? My " Switch Rod " is hard to get uses to . So like Dennis I'm tying lot's of Fly's for " Steelhead " & " Still Water's " . I have had the opportunity to go " Steelhead Fishing with " Garry Fisher " which some of you may know . I never hook in to a fish but " Garry " did ! What a great day on a " River " I can't give name to but I will post a couple of "Picture's ". I hope you all a " Happy New Year " and keep tying I'll post some new fly's in " At the Bench " so stay safe , Cheer's FlyRod .
  22. Merry Christmas Everybody ! I caught some nice's Cutty's at " Horne Lake " Hope your all tying fly's this Christmas , FlyRod .
  23. Wow ,Thank You everyone . I just got hooked up to the " Telus " what a time . I just " Rigged - up "for COHO and bought a " New Beulah " 6 - weight " Switch Rod " and Reel , from " Nile Creek Flyshop " Let me say that " Courtney " that owns the shop is awesome and so is his staff just treat you right and know what they are talking about . So after purchasing a new line and some fly's I was going fishing for COHO . My first " River was the " Little Qualicum River " Well when I got to the " River " I noticed a lot of people fishing near the Island Bridge , So I made my way up to the next pool . OK no buddy around good . So I look in to the pool and " Folks you wouldn't believe me but there in the big pool was big " Spring"s and Big COHO " well after getting over the shivers , I casted a # 6 Hook with Dumbbell Eye's and Orange and White polar hair and bang a " Spring " took the line and Zip gone broke off everything except the fly line . still shacking in my boot's , I said to myself I need a bigger Rod . I watch a guy beside me blow his 6 weight " Sage " so I pulled out and headed back to " Nile Creek fly shop " and said to " Courtney" I need a bigger Rod so with out giving me a hard time He loaded me up with a 8 - weight " Beulah " Switch Rod & N/C fly reel and line . Now I'm ready for the " Big One's " He He , I'll be going to " French Creek Bay " Tomorrow , Stay tuned , FlyRod .
