Flash Sale $19.98-$21.98 Retail $35
I quite appreciate being out of cell service in many of the places I fish.  But some do have service and if being able to be found allows me an extra day on the water, I will take my phone.

These cases may save your phone from a drop on the rocks and would make a great stocking stuffer.  Click through to The Clymb's flash sales site for many wicked seasonal specials including outerwear, running, cycling, and much more.

Bob Clay on Big Skeena Steelies

I'd love to meet Bob Clay some day.  Actually, I'd really love to go fishing with him some day.  Seems like he'd be an awesome fishing partner.

Bob talks about The Skeena watershed as the holy grail of steelheading.  It's not just a watershed worth protecting, it seems as though it's a watershed that has to be protected.

Hatchery Reaction

Check out the instant body language reaction to the initial question about hatchery versus wild fish.

Jim Adams explains hatchery fish from Barbless Fly Media on Vimeo.

Northern Gateway and The Skeena

Don't know the dollar figures on how much money sport fishing brings to the Skeena region, but the Mayor of Smithers, Taylor Bachrach seems to think his constituents are firmly against a pipeline traversing and paralleling Skeena watersheds.

Rob Brown--The Skeena Angler

Barbless Fly Media has released a bunch of interview snippets of famous Skeena anglers, writers, fisheries management specialists, ...  Rob's very well known for his writings on the Skeena.

Skeena Legend Talks Skeena Steelhead

I've heard the name Bob Hooton for decades.  When articles go in to any depth talking Skeena steelhead, Bob's name is sure to be mentioned.

Merino Wool 1/2 Price Anyone?

I love merino wool!  It's super comfy, breathes well, doesn't absorb odours like some synthetics, etc, etc.

For Canadian customers, Canadian Cartel has their merino wool garments at half price.  Click through to flash sale site Canadian Cartel to check it out.  Supplies are already dwindling so act fast if you're interested.

I Know What The P Stands For

Reg $299, Epic Sale $144.98
Not sure what the C and the X stand for in Redington's CPX Zip Front waders, but I think I know what the P stands for.  It's worth the extra money.  Trust me, I've been wearing zip fronts for the last year and they'd be very hard to back track on.  Only money would stop a guy from going down that road in the future.

However, pick them up during The Clymb's Epic sale and you can probably pick em up cheaper than a non-zip pair.  They're reduced more than 50%.  The William Joseph WST's are discounted even more--only 38% of retail.

These are not the only deals.  There are rods, float tubes, reels, jackets, etc.  And that's only in the fishing section.  There are tons of other categories.  Check em out by clicking through to The Clymb.

Missouri River Trout

One of those days where good vids are hittin back to back to back.

You know how some pools are just impressive; jewels; incredible.  I like the looks of this pool.

Fire in the Firehole

Yukon Goes Fishing (YGF) looks to have been beating up on the late season big boys.  Gotta love it when the water temps drop into prime feeding shape and the fish look to fatten up for winta.

Sunday, 14 October 2012


The Clymb is having a sale of Epic proportions--up to 99% off definitely qualifies.  A little Christmas shopping for fishing gear, snow apparel, camping equipment and more.  Or for yourself--you deserve it too.  Sale starts tomarra marnin at 8 Eastern.

Leeches for Big Trout

Leech sunglasses that is.  Although this appears to be a Leech Eyewear advert it's all fishin all the time.  Plenty of good sight fishing for trout taking dries.

If you want to check out Leech Sunglasses, click through to their website.

Ross Reels Flash Sale

Vexsis 1.5 3-5 weight
Reg $325, Flash Sale $229.98
The Clymb is hosting a flash sale for Ross Reels.  If you were thinking about a new reel, this deal applies to many models and has deep discounts.  Clymb aboard.


Check out the brawn of the brown at 10:06.  And just by mentioning 10:06, any blemishes the trout may have gone were magically scrubbed away.

It also looks like Latitude Guiding might be a good call if you're a trout nut with the dinero to fly to New Zealand.  I love casting to sighted fish-combines the attraction of hunting with the attraction of fishing and yet you can still release the fish into the wild after landing them.

Gaula-The Original (and better) Trailer

In my personal opinion, this trailer is much more intriguing than the recent release.  Do you agree?

Gaula - River of Silver & Gold from tapamthemovie on Vimeo.

Gaula's Atlantic Salmon

Gotta say I preferred the trailer they first put out for this movie.  If I can locate it, I'll post both versions so you can see which one you prefer.

Backcountry Golden Dorado--NW Argentina Style

Like all of Todd Moen's films, this is top quality.  Enjoy!

Bob Clay on Ferrules

Living BC legend Bob Clay talks about the ultimate ferrule design for bamboo spey rods.  I'd love to cast one of his rods some day to feel what all the bamboo aficionados feel.  He also comes across as the kind of guy you'd love to sit on a river bank log with and swap fishing stories.

Redfish on Top--Bryan Carter's Louisianna Edition

Tongariro Roll Cast

Straight out of the spey casting files comes The Tongariro Roll Cast.  Looks like Herb here is executing it with an indicator and weighted nymph to make the cast that much more impressive.  When big fish are feeding hard on nymphs or eggs, this cast would get your fly in front of lots of bruisers in places you could never get your line out due to limited back cast space.  Well worth trying to learn I'd say.

Best Of Big New Zealand Browns

Went to NZ in 96/97 and had heard the name Tony Entwistle back then.  Judging by this video, he's still guiding clients to some large brownies.

Comin Into Your Livin Room

Winner of Best Movie at this year's Drake Fly Fishing Video Awards, Predator showcases surface fishing for queenfish.  I especially like the take when the queenie jumps Jono's popper coming straight at the camera and Jono driving the boat with his toes while simultaneously working a queenfish out of the mangroves.

Some Fishers Grew Up Hunting

I grew up hunting with my dad and brother.  The early mornings, a fresh snow, beautiful elk, ...

Searching For West encapsulates many of the beautiful backdrops and experiences that go along with a life in the outdoors.  If you're a fisher, you'll likely appreciate the beauty of this film.  Over 11000 others watched it on its first day on Vimeo.  Enjoy.  I know I did.
