The bridge can stay in place, I'll fish off of it. I'll catch the 6 inchers and bake them on my new flat pan :mrgreen:

I think that took place in BC..somewhere around Surrey I heard..Cute!... :lol: :lol: :lol:

I spent the month of june remodelling a flyfishing camp in Alaska (Katmai Lodge)for 3 years in the mid 80s'..Sometimes I wondered if I would be faced with that situation up there!!Nothing worse than stepping out of a boat unto a gravel bar covered with big-a$$ bear prints,steaming piles of Bear S--- and fish carcasses... keeping one eye in front and one behind while you are fishing...I think I would have tripped my fellow fishermen while running for the boat..rather than trying to kick him in the nards..Those are big boys up there!

Okay..I guess the wife isn't going anywhere for 3 weeks or so..so I pulled the hike-crap out to "maybe" get a few things sorted out and tested.Afyter looking at it...maybe another day(or week) will be needed.. :o :shock:

Apparently I've accumulated a tad more than I thought over the last few months...

Another successful trip to the swap meet..got this for $5..minus the flyreel...Image

Anyway..I've been looking for a light weight fiberglass or graphite fly/packrod that I could modify for the tiny reel..However..this will do ..so it saves me a ton of work ,making one and it's pretty indestructible!
"Coleman Fish Pen"...collapsing pole that is self-storing in it's own "pen case"..overall about 8" long has the perfect reel seat for the smaller mount of the flyreel!
The casting reel that comes with the kit..well..looks like a piece of crap with a lot of plastic..but does have a drag system on it.I haven't tried casting the thing.The kit does come with a plastic casting practice plug,3 hooks,3 weights,and a bobber(WOW! :mrgreen: )!
I figure a handful of fishing flies and using the flyreel rather than the casting one gives me a fishing set of a total weight of 120 grams!The casting ability isn't superb but something I can live with with casts of say 30-40 ft..good for small streams.I took a 3 weight double taper line,cut it in half,added 50' or so of kevlar spiderwire and it pretty much fills the reel to capacity..I can carry some 4 lb tippet,the reel,pen,and a handful of dry/wet flies in a small case and hoepfully catch dinner when it's available.. :DB: :fishing: = :fish: = :dinner: :mrgreen:

Hmm..just checked google..someone has these small sets for 6.99 online down from $16.99! :o If you need a tiny pole that has a tiny reel seat..Like I said..I don't know how well they cast with that reel(I've got another tiny daiwa reel I'd probably use in 'casting" mode...)..but if someone wants to know,I can go out in the yard and try it out.They come loaded with light line (6lb?). :P
