    I would suggest not taking your daughter, until you are sure of the area, not worth the risk in my opinion plus just the walk down to the whirl pool can be pretty "hairy". Always keep a eye on the water as it comes up fast. Be safe.
  3. That is all i run, no fly line at all, just backing to mono...
  4. PM me in few weeks when season opens. How long have you been fly fishing? What are looking to improve on?
  5. Good day everyone, with bass season opening in the next few weeks, was thinking of swinging for a few. Can anyone point to a general area on the Ninth river or other rivers or tributaries I could target them, please do not give up specifics or if you prefer I would appreciate a P.M. I will be wading so needs to be areas that this is possible. thanks I really appreciate it, and info will be kept to myself. If I can help in any way let me know I know many places for browns, rainbows and brookies, I can get you on these fish.

    Agree a 8 weight is ideal for carp, also take a look at a couple Fenwick combos available at Sail. I have owned a few Fenwicks and they are very nice for the $.
  7. Maybe hit up some water together one day.
  8. First let me say congrats on a great day on the fly!!! If you are interested in Euro nymphing/tight line nymphing . You should look at a 10-11 foot rods specific to that style of fly fishing. Also the leaders are the most important part of euro nymphing. I use a 10' 3 weight and a 11' 2 weight , with no fly line... yes no fly line I run a mono rig. I use 30 to 40 feet of 20 pound maxim chameleon mono down, to 5 feet of 15 pound maxim chameleon mono, then 24 inches of 10 pound or 2x tippet sighter ( indicator tippet ) with a 2mm tippet ring tied to the end. Add tippet as required ( length ). I typically use only 6x and 5x fluro tippet. This is all tied strait on to 20 pound backing and that is it. Here is a good link for you to read over: https://troutbitten.com/2016/02/03/the-mono-rig-and-why-fly-line-sucks/ I never use a bobber the indicator tippet acts as a sighter for strike detection, and it is VERY effective. As far as shot I personally don't, I run double nymphs . For weight look at bigger beads 4mm, 3.5mm 3mm tungsten. Most of my nymphs are tied on to size 16, 14, 12 jig hooks ( barbless ). Also you can always add lead wire to your flies for added weight. This style of fly fishing is DEADLY and will produce a lot of fish.... and big fish to boot. Also there is a lot of info out there. Have fun and tightlines! Have fun and tightlines !
  9. Looking at it for late spring early summer.
  10. Maybe worth while to take my son (7yr old). He something of a bird watcher and fisherman..... just like good ole dad. We fish the lower part of this creek where it opens into Jordan harbour, good for a variety of species and he always catching a few every time out. Plus great place for any fan of birds.
  11. Cheers, is the water deep up there? I have mapped out a few locations, that could be accessed by foot. I am more curious about this water having drive by it the other day and got to wondering if there would be anything worth fishing up there.
  12. Any.... just curious to know if there is any in that water. And is it fishable.
