Author Topic: show your weapons !!

lets see what you fish with!!

this is my 4/5 wt switch rod for trout and pink

and my 7wt switch for pink,coho and steelhead

#8 11'6" custom sage switch and #9-10 14'dragonfly for springs and big river casting,i also have many single hands and gear rods,in total I have 26 rod/reel combos!!lets just say I have FISHUES!!!!

that's the same rod as my profile pic w/crown royal butt cap(and mike those 2 steel were from your neck of the woods,might say I had good lux on that river)


yup thats alot of rods..and thays my fav winter river..
I have one more..a 9ft 8wt.that i used for steel..Im almost approaching my first year flyfishing and i have 3 now..5 more years i might have fishues..haha

nice set up and fish jp

8'6" #7-8 Graphite Composite. Floating line with 10 foot sink tip. Was at the Mamquam all morning and landed over a dozen. Kept this one. Going to go out and get the Little Chief on Friday and smoke salmon for the first time!

great catch !

a good drag system is a handy thing to have..I always palm my reel too until i have a moment to tighten my drag..i've had my fair share of rats nests and banged up knuckles !

doesnt have to be expensive gear to be good..on my 4-5 switch I use a $50 dragonfly L.A 7/8..has a great drag system and looks pretty good on the rod and a perfect balance..

Mike's bang on.No need the break the bank,palming is a good way to go.If you don't have an exposed rim,you may have to get a finger on the spool

palms are a great thing!

Testing out my new Kufa reel. Works great!


ha thats funny, if you want to see nice steelhead youre on the wrong site

There is many people that have caught big metalheads on here. One i know of started this thread.

No pics of my weapon as i don't take pics of my rod and post it on the internet.
But most used rod is a lamiglas cert. pro 10'6" blank that i made paired with a calcutta te.
Second most used is my TFO 6wt that i put together a while back.

oh how I can hardly wait to hook into some winter steel..never have fished the summer runs yet..keep slaying the chromed out pinks..guess i can wait a few months

you should be targeting summers instead. They are way better than winter runs and obviously pinks. Youre lucky to be so close to so many rivers with steelhead

got my first baitcaster couple months ago...took a lil getting used to casting and pulling apart bird nests..but its landed me a couple coho

my newest weapon..10'6 trohy titan xl color matched with a blue islander steelheader pin
oh the drifts i get

loving it.
