After a long and fruitless history of Steelhead struggles I've decided to switch my conventional tackle to a fly setup. Why? Because I found a cheap offer on some gear and I like making things difficult I guess. I do have experience flyfishing under an indicator for trout, I'll plan to use...

I called it quits at the end of November, even though there are still some ocean fresh chinooks being caught. That being said, it wasn’t a bad fall. I fly fished more than anything this time around though I did bonk a few fish with bait and twitching jigs. I caught chinooks,cohos,and chums this...

Hey Gang, So whats your confidence fly? Now, i realized this is subjective to location, water quality and everything else but let's give it a go! -my confidence fly is a Panty Dropper in size 14 or 16. It has a gold disco bead head. It looks like a tried and true P.T. but with that added zest. I...

Couldn't find a trade forum so here goes. Sage Vxp 8wt 9'3" Rod is in damn fine condition and can sure belt a salmon when it needs to. Selling because I want a more steelhead focused setup. The rod is discontinued if that makes your decision easier. Message me for pic $275 Obo

Hello. I started fly fishing last year, without anything but the Internet and some of Tom Rosenbauer's thorough and detail-rich books. It is my desire to fish in some small streams as close as possible to the Eugene/Springfield area. I've tried both hills creek and fall creek above their...

For those who’ve spent time in Southern Oregon, specifically Grants Pass you may have come across the old family homestead. In my youth we lived on Sleepy Hollow Road (what a great name) off of Jerome Prairie Road. As you drive up the long straight away you would have seen a huge barn with three...

With low water on the rivers and less traffic from drift boats and summer floaters, fishing and solitude have been pretty solid. I strictly swing this time of the year with spey rods for both steelhead and trout. (Steelhead year round 100% spey) A buddy of mine and I did a float with the rain...
