kind of self-explanatory, right? We seem to have some impressive thread-wrappers that lurk around this board. let's try to keep your "first booger" posts at a minimum.

Have you decided yet which thunderstick it will be?
Met a fella who makes fishing poles at dinner one night up in BC this fall. Got a 15' 3" Burkie for a 10/11. It is actually pretty pleasant in hand much to my surprise. Need to find a 4 1/4 Perfect to strap to it.

Going to be a little different throwing a 15 or 16 foot 10 weight but that is what they do in Norway. Big water and the chance at some big fish. They land a few fish over 20 kilos every season and lose more of them.
*sigh*

a steelhead even half that big could never be landed... those fish must fight like karp. :cheer

Sweeet. Have fun.

I've got an extra 4" Dingley Perfect, but I'm suspicious that's not hefty enough.

Allow me to give you some unsolicited advice, root...

Less is more with the hackles.


They look nice. Have you tied any on size 16 trebles in preparation for your visit to Iceland yet?

At least the Chinktard is not beating this corner of the forum up. People have nothing better to do?

Starting to tie up some stuff to chase big toothy fish with.
