    I'm headed down to the Toronto area this fall and don't know where to fish. Not expecting A-list spots but any river that is swingy would be appreciated. I'm totally new to the southern Ontario spey game so if anybody knows of any good patterns i would very much appreciate it. I'm used to...

    I am heading down the coast Dec 15-28 for the holidays, hoping to spend a day out on the water for winter steelhead. Grew up in Surrey and never river fished until I moved away 12 years ago. I know of the popular places to go for steelhead; the Vedder and Chilliwack River. Wondering, where...

    I just fished the Klamath River for the last three days. I drifted from Gordon's Ferry to the Klamath River Inn. The mornings were beautiful and mystic on the water. I swung flies the whole time. I think the largest fish I caught were maybe 12-13" No adults for me. I'm still in search of...

    Hello all, new here to the Forums and did a few searches on subject topic but didn't really find the advice I was looking for. I am a long time SH guy, but was recently introduced to 2 handed rods by a guide on a trip to the Salmon River in NY. I mostly fish smaller local streams in SW PA, but...

    Just put my last day in on the Sandy here in Oregon. Tough one for me. 15 days on the water and 1 grab. Wondering how others fared this winter? If you fish the Sandy at all I'd love to know how your season went.

    I've got a 13'6" Sage VXP 8wt Spey rod and Sage 2080 large arbor reel up for grabs. I bought the entire setup new in 2014 and have meticulously cared for it (comparable to the "Mod" line that Sage currently offers). I have recently moved however, so I will no longer have much use for this rod...

    I caught my first Steelhead in the summer when I was 8 years old. A couple split shot and a periwinkle on a size 6 eagle claw hook. Standing barefoot in the rifles on the Nestucca, fishing for trout. I shall never forget my paltry 6' combo bent over and a silver bullet flying out of the water...
