    Trolling with a fly rod for salmon/brook trout

    I troll with a fly rod each year in the Quetico or Crown land lakes near the Quetico. The difference is I troll for smallmouth bass. Best results are using a floating fly line with a long leader and a self tied bucktail streamer with a barbell head for weight. My wife and I are in a 17 ft...

    Throwing line over a tree limb, and a recent revelation

    Tie a fairly heavy carabiner to your rope. Works very well.

    Georgia or South Carolina in mid November?

    I suggest the Okefenokee or Suwannee River. Google them and you will find all about canoeing trails. The Suwannee River wilderness trail is great and it is in north Florida. Not Georgia but just south of Georiga. You will find all the information you need. We have crossed the Okefenokee...

    I am five feet eleven inches but have a short torso. I found a way to measure your paddle based on torso length. See if you can google paddle length recommendations and see if you can find information on measuring paddle length based on torso. My torso is 29 inches and the paddle for me in...

    Stupidest Canoe Accessory Ever?

    In defense of elevated storage for canoes.. Here in South Georgia I leave aluminum canoes on the banks of our pond. Unless they are elevated off the ground, fire ants build huge nests in the bow and stern under the decks. I elevate them off the ground using scrap 6 X 6 treated pine poles...
