My Experimental Rod Holder for My Solo (Steelhead) Outings

I made a very simple contraption that will hopefully assist me when I hook into my first steelhead. Given the rule, if I understand it correctly, that they must be kept in the water unless they are being retained when legal, I have often wondered how I could take a photo of the fish, while still holding the rod in one hand (I am not going to do the, “hold it by the teeth method,” no way), keeping it in the water, AND trying to hold a camera. The simplest way would be to have a buddy around to… Continue

Johnny Walker wins Lake Shasta National Guard Western Series stop #1 !

I'll start by saying I got a little wordy!!!!

My 2010 season started with a phone call assuring me that I would be fishing again this year after coming off a Top 10 finish at Clear Lake during the 09 season. By the way, I'm really not worthy to have such a great… Continue

Fluidized bed for powder coating jigs

Due to crappy cold eastern Washington weather I have been tinkering in my tackle shop and decided to build a fluidized bed for powder coating my jig heads. Thought I would post a couple of pictures and share how to build them at a fraction of the cost of buying one. I decided to make two of them so I could paint more than one color at a time.

Take a Senior Fishing - A Story for the Winter Blues

I woke up the day after Christmas 2009 to a crisp 31° F. It served as a frosty reminder that winter has just begun and I am willing to wager that many anglers have already put away their gear until spring. Except for the most hard core of anglers, these anglers try to find ways to stave off the fishing blues. Some frequent online forums or learn the craft of making lures. Others do it by reliving and remembering the memories of the past season.

It could be a new personal best 7.5 lb.… Continue
