  4. Thanks guys...and I forgot to mention that fish was a bucket list fish for 2 reasons...finally one on a dry fly and it was my first over 20 pounds. I'd been close to that 20 pound mark a number times, but until this fish that goal had eluded me. đź‘Ť
  5. I started fishing for Atlantic Salmon in 1974, and it wasn't until Jul 3rd, 2010 that I finally took one on a dry fly. I guess because I rarely fished dries for them, that may have been a contributing factor. My guide on that morning suggested a dry after I already had taken and released a couple of 5 pound grilse. About a half hour later this fish took the fly. It was a Green Bomber size 4. The fish was 39.5" long and 21.5" around the girth. It came from Spring Rock Pool on the Dartmouth River. According to the Atlantic Salmon Federation's "Salmo Meter" the fish weighed about 22.5 pounds. If I do say so myself, not a bad first dry fly Atlantic Salmon...and like the others it was released unharmed.

  8. Quick little end of spring sale on a couple rods. I have two new 6'6" 2wt 4pc rods I am offering at a sale price to clear them out before I shut down for the month of June for an annual fishing trip. I only have two of these so they are first come first serve. They will be done on Monday and ready to ship then. Both are almost identical to the one in the picture. Normally these are $155 but sale price is $110 each.
  9. Haven't posted rod pics for a couple weeks. Not because I haven't done any, but rather because I've been so busy with trying to get caught up on rod orders so I can start getting ready for my annual 2 week trip next month. So while I had some free time this morning I figured I would post a few pics of some of the latest builds from the past couple weeks.
