Here is an interesting article we came across last week about catch-and-release landing practices for steelhead on the Gink and Gasoline blog.  If what these biologists found out about the vulnerability of big BC steelhead has any overlap on what can happen to trout if they are not landed and/or released properly, it makes you think a bit.

We know that a LOT of our customers and fly fishing clients joined us at the WAYPOINTS show on November 8th.  Here is the first review of the film.  Our pal Kirk Deeter from Field & Stream's Fly Talk is well known for calling 'em like he sees ‘em – and this review he pulls no punches.

Simms GORE-TEX - Waders and Jackets

We had a great trip to Montana a few weeks ago.  One of the stops we made was to the new Simms factory located just on the outskirts of Bozeman.  As one of the only wader manufacturers who has a highly skilled work force designing and building GORE-TEX waders here in the United States, it was eye-opening to watch the entire wader construction process first hand and to learn more about the materials themselves. 

Gear Review: Sage Method 6126

Over the last several years I have cast a wide variety of spey rods in various sizes, shapes and makes and I had a pretty good idea what I liked or disliked in a 2 handed rod.  Spey rods are built for power and if using good--or in my case adequate-- casting techniques, they are the perfect tool for the job when it comes to swinging flies for anadromous fish.  At 12-17’ long, they’re going to move some line, so power has always been a term to describe them in almost any gear review or stream side chat.  But one term I had never used before and almost never heard when describing two handed rods, regardless of make or model prior to this year was comfort.  That is, until I fished the new Sage Method.  Ultimately the Sage Method, Skagit Max and ConnectCore Shooting Line worked extremely well together and I was very impressed with how well this lighter, shorter six-weight handled larger rivers and some very large steelhead.
