New gear that really works!

Gear cranking abuse is what I do best!   Pro Locks and Edge Oar shafts: Pro Loks getting it done Cant say enough about these two combined products. As themselves there really a great addition and serve a purpose for me as a guide on the water so many days a year. the Oar Locks I feel are the best boating addition since the Anchor was invented. They alone produce better rowing stability and maneuverability. The reduced friction and never squeaking are a bonus.  Having the connection cable I feel will be an additional safety item by reducing the loss of a paddle. Combined they are the best solution for aging shoulders and for those planning on rowing thousands of oar strokes a year. If I had these when I was 18 and starting off my river rowing career, pain level today would be far less. It was not that long ago I considered giving up the rowers position due to a torn tendon in my fore arm and chronic shoulder pain. These came along just in time! Best product of the year in my book.                                    Contact: Dan @  Pro Locks Simms bags, Costa glass, Cheeky reels stuffed cliff box's, Rio lines and Varsity Spey Rods..             BC Chinook Cheeky Fly Reels; When they first came onto the market I was skeptical as I am with everything NEW. I have been using these for all of my fishing for over 18 months. Including adventure angling for everything FAST and hard fighting, Roosters and Dorado have been no match. I subjected them to Washington largest Chinook run in decades and northern BC Chinook runs on the Skeena boasting the largest Steelhead and Salmon on the continent. Absolutely zero problems! Next season we will be testing on the bad ass GT of Christmas Island. I think there up to the challenge!                                 Contact: Cheeky Fly Reels or your local fly shop!   Ascension bay Baby Tarpon Simms sun gloves: When I opened these up from the package

May Playtime

  Shortly after winter spring steelhead season I wander off to do some fun fishing in the Yucatan Peninsula and Baja California Sur, or simply East cape as the Rooster aficionado angler calls it. The Yucatan trip to Ascension bay was plagued with high winds and not so enthusiastic tarpon. I did manage a few fish and presented to a couple willing Permit but beyond that our good fortune was limited to the fantastic service at La Pescadora Lodge in Punta Allen. Jose the head guide is the next level individual that understands more about the area's Permits than the Permits do themselves! I will just have to call a do over on this one, already have my dates on the calendar! East Cape fished very well for us with the Dorado bite on pretty much daily. The Roosters were far and few in between and really only seen a couple for the short work we offered on them. I fell off the high horse and went trolling a day and did pretty damn well with a few Wahoo, a Marlin that followed us for a mile and Dorado that came running from a hundred yards to crash our baits. Its the damdest thing we could see them leaping from the left or right and attack our trolled offering. It is something that is as exciting as skating a dry over the sweet spot. Our friend the 10 foot shark I learned more this season than the last five, some real fish catching experience that will be useful for the years to come. Basically why I love going to new places, the learning curve is fundamentally the game. Back to reality and the trout fishing world on the Yakima River...that will be in the next posting, Yakima River Drakes, the time is now!
