It seems that Loop is selling Evotecs again, plus...

Since the Moderator did not explain why he thinks all of my comments are nonsense, I will expand a bit on why I said what I said.

Oh, I forgot. A huge US megastore chain has a store in a suburb north of Toronto. Caters mostly to bass fishermen and the like but they do carry some fly tackle.

Toronto is a dead zone for fly fishers. I believe interest in fly fishing probably peaked here in the 1980's and has been dying a slow death ever since. There is now only one full service fly shop...

Hello Teflon,

My post was intended as an opinion about waders and not as a personal shot at anyone. Obviously, it was poorly written since it was misinterpreted - my apologies to you for that. By...

First a disclaimer; I have never owned Bare waders or products so my comments about them are not from first hand knowledge.

I have used bow and arrow casts once, but only because there was no other way. A long, long time ago now I was exploring a new to me, tiny (less than 2m wide), brook trout stream that was so...

If I were shopping for a fishing camera today, I would definitely choose one of the waterproof point and shoot cameras now available.

If I wanted a non-waterproof P&S for whatever reason (better...

I own a Canon 5D. Too big, heavy and expensive for fishing and not waterproof. You know of course, that dunking a modern camera fries the electronics beyond repair. That is why before the recent...

I use a Canon A60 P&S with its custom waterproof housing WP-DC700. The camera has a low resolution by today's standards but is just fine for my purposes. However, the purpose-built housing is not...

About 6 or 7 years ago, one of my guides on the Bonaventure brought one along. He was able to spot fish with the thing but I couldn't. You could try contacting the outfitter on the Bonaventure (I...

I agree with all the people who have said here that the Danielsson is a great reel.

I have a Loop LW 6nine that I bought to use with a 10 ft boron rod and 7wt Wulff Triangle Taper line. Yes, it...

And another thing.

I don’t know the history of the York but likely at one time there were private rights owners and leaseholders who give up their fishings, probably unwillingly, by either being...

Of course private rods on the York are a terrible idea. I am not totally sure how things work but I thought it was the ZEC's mandate to manage the river. From the original post, it sounds as if the...
