    Really Disappointed WIth Legend Boat

    You can buy what they call a head maker to match any solid rivet you use. I work in the transit bus trade and have done lots of solid riveting. The chisel gun with headmaker on the outside and someone on the inside with a dolly or small solid block of steel. Do a few practices on some scrap metal and after couple times you can feel and listen for a good mash of the rivet. I would dip each rivet in 221 Sikaflex prior to hammering it for a 100% seal. Use aluminum anodized solid rivits not bare aluminum as they corrode to easily. Need any advice on solid riveting PM me...Ive only got 40yrs experience doing that. Much the same as aircraft builders.

    New to fly fishing ish...

    The grand between Bellwood lake and West Montrose is brown trout, single barbless hook C&R. The Grand between Paris and Brant park pedestrian bridge is also single barbless hook C& R. Having said that, the grand has been fishing poorly this year for bass. The ice jam this past winter and low warm waters have made the fishing poor. There is plenty of Bass in the grand from Kitchener all the way to Brant Park. Crayfish patterns and anything white are productive. Glenn Morris area can be really good for Bass, but again this year has been tough. If you want to have a day of fun, to practice your casting and hook some big trout...Lyndon Trout pond in New Dundee has some monster trout in it. For $35 you can fish all day barbless hook C&R. Blobs and boobie flies at the pond will have your arms worn out in no time....a great place for kids and for sure your hooking huge trout, just don't buy the fish very expensive. No fishing license needed there either. Steelhead will be soon arriving in the grand lower between Paris and Brant Part, that's another option. Hopefully the grand responds better next year, but like I said this year has been poor with huge weed growth..almost weeds every cast.

    Brantford to Caledonia Grand River

    So true, exactly what you have said. The fishing has been really poor. Lets just hope it can recover from the bad winter and soup like summer temperatures have taken a toll on things. I have really noticed a huge increase in weed growth with the high summer temps. The rain the last few days has been badly needed. It might take a few years for the grand to bounce back and I did see a few good schools of baby bass so that's something to look forward too.

    Boat prop problem question

    Not sure they have a shear pin....I think the prop tears the hub and spins. One way to find out Cliff, put it in gear...not running of course and try to turn the prop. If it moves on the hub then needs new hub.

    Downrigger releases

    Yes, those are the good ones. The White offshore releases are the exact same, however a lighter tension more for walleye.

    Downrigger releases

    Been out of the game for awhile, but when I was in I only used offshore releases the black with red rubber pads. Not those plastic jobs.

    Brantford to Caledonia Grand River

    The river between Paris/ Brant park is screwed right now. Those deep holes don't exist as the water is like Tyler said crystal clear and very very low. Weed growth is unreal right now completely covering the bottom. Its weed on the line every cast even with the lightest of flies. Usually do really good in that stretch, but there is very few fish around right now. Find a few you might find the motherload of them. We know this water pretty good...and we cant find them. Saw very few Kayakers, or tubers floating down river so grand river rafting is losing money with these conditions...normally lots of people rafting or canoeing but theres just so much weed growth and floating weed its pretty yukky crap to swim or float in. We were grounding out in my pontoon constantly on bottom...we need some major rain. The water is like soup.

    Simms wading boots

    Kevlar Laces? I need new laces for my my g3s too. Last pair I bought are too thick and a pain to get out of the hooks...thinking thick would last longer. Im still not sure on the quality of the G3s...first pair I ripped the pull strap off after a month. Second pair under warranty the leather on the tongue is ripped and cracking around the toes after less 2 yrs. I seen Tylers new G3s, they changed them again and look better built now than the 2015/16 model.
