I've been fishing my little stretch of the Bulkley a lot lately, mainly alone, mainly flies, mainly skunked. I'd like to swing a few with a companion for a change. If you live around, or are coming up for a visit, and want some company, let me know. Not prejudiced; I swing flies and fling lures...
I'm heading to the North Thompson River for a fishing trip in a few weeks for the first time. I usually stick to stillwater fly fishing so I don’t know much about river tactics. What works in this part of the river, any flies/techniques/line recommendations? Thanks!
I know most of you probably tie your own flies but if you're like me and have zero hand eye coordination we have to buy our flies. What are your favourite places to buy your flies? Preferably an online store which will ship throughout BC and in bulk is always nice as well. Thanks!
Winter cutty flies (more pics)
Its that time of the year now for those Big Cutties to start roaming the shallows.
Also to start snoopin around for an early winter run
Heres a few ive been tying lately for cutts and Steelies
Lots of chum hangin around now with the coho and while there still bright and active, its been fun getting a few on the fly.
Great for the smoker aswell (if there not to dark)
Ive alwase used the usual green/white clouser, green neils and chartreuse wooly's seem to work well for me.
I'm heading over to Bamfield early next to fish with a buddy and we're going after some coho in the salt.
It's my first time targeting Coho in the salt, and I want to tie up some appropriate flies.
I'd appreciate any info (pattern, sizes, colours, etc).
Planning on hitting up the Salmon run on the Shuswap this year and I'm looking to tie up some patterns specifically for these fish.
I was going to tie up a couple of egg sucking leeches and stoneflies, but are there any other suggestions? Popsicles in specific colour combinations?
I have been camping for the last little while. I had 2 or 3 bites in 3 days of almost nonstop fishing. I was the only one to have the 2 or 3 bites on a horsfly pattern Iv yet to post. but the lake was highly popullated with salamanders and other small life. mostly salamanders. I think the fish...
I've got my trip coming up with My dad, Uncle, Cousin and I coming to fly fish the campbell so i've been tying like crazy. 120 flies in 3 days. Lots of small chartreuse intruders, pink intruders (size 8) with stinger hook, eggs, tylers terrors in blue, chartreuse, and pink, egg sucking leaches...
I'm heading to the stamp river this september for some coho on the fly. Can anyone give me some hints and tips for styles and sizes of flies that work well on this river? I have a pretty good idea of some decent flies to use from the photo galleries on this site and others, just wondering if...
I was wondering if any of the more veteran fly tiers on here have any suggestions for rubber leg and body materials that can be bought at the average craft store for stoneflies.
I'm looking to tie up some flies for a trip this weekend, and rubber legs would be nice. Tough part is that the fly...
It has alway's worked for me that most patterns that I have tied have alway's ended up having a Red body go figure and they worked on any water's that we have fished so how about some of you showing me pic's of any of the pattern's in red that you have had success with the one that we first...
My question is, when your fishing a dry fly and you see the water explode underneath your fly, do you set the hook right away or do you wait a set time then set the hook, as I seem to be loosing a lot of fish on the initial strike when I set the hook.thanks
