Congrats on the boat

Glad you like it. In long run, if it's good for you, it's all that matters.

I'm in process of selling off my big boat and buying new Steelheader tubes for my custom frame. Then, probably buying my 12' Steelheader during late summer/early fall. Not sure if I'll buy whole package or custom build frame on the 12' yet.

Another Pic of My Bad Cat

Siletz river below Twin Bridges. One wild steelhead caught and released on a pink worm. I missed one on sand shrimp that day.

My New Bad Cat

Siletz river below Moonshine.

Hoping to go

Not sure if boat will be ready by then. Hoping to sell of my boat. In process of doing some retrofits to custom frame, then buy new tubes. It's a 16' boat now, but going to downsize to 14' tubes. Tubes I'm getting have same capacity. If I have will tow along. Would love to meet you. Also would love to improve my spey casting. I'm still in learning curve. Need all the help I can get.

Eugene SH69, are you planning on attending the Sandy Calve? If so maybe we can do a float on the upper river. There's some fun water up there and likely some fish too!

KerryS Sinktip,

I will gladly give you or anyone else the specifics on Faber's or any other run on the Skagit/Sauk. I only fish them 3 or 4 times a week. (hint of sarcasm here)

I don't think letting people know my opinion (again its just my opinion and I am certainly not the end authority here) of a very well known boat launch run is giving away specifics. Anyone who can read water even barely would be able to tell it probably doesn't hold steelhead. It fishes nice and I will stop there again. I would also fish it if it happens to be my take out as I am sure any one else would.

Do you want to know where if steelhead have been landed in the past 2 days? I can give you that information. I can tell you what flies they were caught with. I can tell you what sink tip was used. I can tell you where in the run they were caught. The top, the bottom, etc. Any one who is in the network of steelheaders on the Skagit/Sauk could also give you that info. There are not that many secrets out there. I don't post when and where fish are caught or what line was used or what fly or what cast was used, what run or where in the run. Nope, I don't do that. I rarely will post up the fact I have caught any fish at all. Nor do I post if any one else has caught fish.

My opinion of a very well known run just doesn't sound like much to worry about to me.

kush I said he got a fish that day - but I did not say he got it there

sinktip Nothing against off topic posts but a little nervous over specific discussions of favorite runs. Next thing you know I will log on here and read that the seam is 75' out and there are two pockets one high and one at the bottom. Come on people

Skagit Bad!

Just for that Kerry

YOU'RE OUTTA HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!! You can't come back no more for throwing us off topic.

Nothing wrong with going off topic. I'm not going to .

I found a couple more pics, thought I'd show off. This is a picture of my old whitewater frame converted to fish from. Has myself and my girlfriend taking off for a float on the Nooch. Gonna be selling this package as it is soon (minus the swivel cooler seat, was stolen, only have a new cooler w/o seat now). It's a great boat. But, have new frame now, and going to be buying new tubes with money I get from selling boat.

KerryS Faber's ferry is what is used to be called. Across from where you are is Faber's hill.

Since I got us way off topic. Fished Faber's yesterday. Never liked it in the past. I think it fishes nice and might even hold a fish. Although I think you are more likely to time it right and get a fish in transit.

kush Kerry,

That is actually Faber's Landing - river left (how's that for a non-local? :hehe: ) The caster is none other than Doublespey - if I recall he even got a fish that day!

A Screamer

Kush' boat, that is. Going that fast in something that small is a bit surreal. Tyler likes to use all 28 of the Yammie's HP.

Kerry - that's actually a spot on the other side and quite a bit below the Mixer.

Good Memories - that was a perfect day for fishing.

My new baby

Here's my new river transporter. Two frames, for me with lots of gear or two people with a little gear. Or I just use one frame for me with a light load. Tubes are 13' by 22". It all fits easily into the back of my small PU truck.

Nothing wrong with that Kush

before I bought my sled, I had a chance to buy an attack boat used by the military. One of those inflatables, but pretty bullet proof. I'm not sure if it was factory or converted, but had a pump on it. I assume in military they would want max output from pump, but in same aspect they may want the lower draft a pump gives you. But nothing wrong with it. If I could find one in 21', I'd buy one. LOL. Instead, I'll be buying a Northriver. LOL

PM, those boats can fly. I wish I would've bought my buddies boat. It went 55mph (per depth finder guage) with two of us in the boat. That wasn't full power either. It was a wonderful boat, just came up with my sled alot cheaper. At times wish I would've bought the inflatable. Alot lighter then my reinforced aluminum sled.
