Furnishing a fishing cabin. Martha Stewart, bend over . . .

Post by Snagly » Tue Jan 13, 2015 11:45 pm

I'm co-furnishing a cabin in steelhead country, BC. The furniture will be upholstered in Monty Python Lumberjack approved plaid. There's gotta be a moose head on the wall. Big TV. Wine, beer, booze storage. Tackle bench and storage. The odd towel, pillow and blanket.

There's a screened porch to serve as the mud room, but other than pegs and boot warmers/ a space heater I have zero idea as to what goes into such a facility.

I've seen enough cool shit in those TR photos to know that there have to be at least twenty nice touches to consider.

The floor is yours, gentlemen. :cool

A screened porch is a great place to put an extra fridge full of beverages, and a propane cook top.

Thanks, A-Tard. I didn't know that they had trees in Oz. If I use a eucalyptus, would it come with koala's?

Top suggestion and will be acted on.

A nice sturdy bench, or two are nice to have on the porch. Us old duffers like to sit down to take our wading boots off.

I don't know about the rest of you, but on my fly fishing trips, there are really only 3 pieces of furniture used. A bed to sleep on, a couch to fall asleep on before bed and after 'one last scotch', and a kitchen table, where we all drink coffee, eat, and generally bullshit about the day to come or the day just done. We seem to spend all our time hanging around that kitchen table. It's like the boardroom table - where all the plans yet to be screwed up are laid out.

Truth be told, we also temporarily decorate like teenagers - with fly fishing and lad mags. Both types seem about equally dog-eared at the end of the trip. It's kinda nice to go old school, and ditch the net for mags. BTW, I say temporarily, because the fishing cabin goes back to 'the cabin' when the boys leave and my wife returns. However, I have managed to get her to leave the "Big Racks Only" sign hanging on the door.

Good luck. Sounds sweet. Send pics.

If I live long enough and if so-

An outdoor in ground fire ring (with grilling potential, hanging dutch oven), and moveable seating. Other than the fish, whiskey around the campfire with good friends is what a trip is all about for me...
Let your boat of life be light, packed with only what you need-a homely home and simple pleasures, one or two friends worth the name, someone to love and someone to love you, a cat, a dog and a pipe or two, enough to eat and enough to wear, and a little more than enough to drink; for thirst is a dangerous thing.

A dart board and a horseshoe pit. Something fun to pass the time while your drinking and hanging out not fishing.

A high powered pellet rifle to give you something to do when hanging in the rocking chairs on the porch.

All the corny wooden bears and fishing signs, shit like that is necessary.

Oh and a I could have a much better idea on how to help when I get invited there to check it out, thanks looking forward to it.
