    Default Introductions

    Hello, since this is my first post I figured I would introduce myself properly. My wife and I just moved up into the Yukon and we are really enjoying the fishing the north has to offer.

    We will be fishing in your great state quite a bit as time goes on and this forum seems like a great place to discuss fishing in the north.

    We primarily chuck flies with one and two handed rods but have been known to chuck gear from time to time. We have fished throughout BC, YT and Wa. We fish 100 days or so a year and are true addicts, as close to being fish bums as possible while still holding jobs.

    Anyways I look forward to contibuting as much as possible to the forum and hopefully fishing with some of you in the future! Figured I would add some fish porn to my first post hope you don't mind!

    Tight loops,

    Pat AV

    Pat its great to meet you Is that the Olympic Peninsula steelhead in the 2nd pic pray tell?
    Heck that could even be the Nooksack
    I'm an all-Alaskan fella but I appreciate killer steelhead country thats for sure. I normally frequent the Clearwater in Lewiston to get my fix but I have also been know to spank the Washington coast streams as well. I have some clearwater pics in my album

    Thanks for the warm welcom guys!

    That second fish is a Bella Coola coho fullbush, I too am a steelhead addict and I am sure my trips down the Cassiar highway will be very frequent when I need a fix.

    Yes I noticed all the star wars references and I am not sure what "the dark side is" but if it means I can catch fish on very windy days and in tough conditions, I am down with that as a last resort.

    Thanks for the welcome, I am mostly a Scott guy, my favorite stick is my Scott LS2 1307. But I do love Loomis rods as well and the warrenty service is setting the standard right now in the industry IMO.

    You are right, you will be seeing me there in the future, I had a look at the overview of the last one and it looked killer.

    Most people on here think of center pin fishing the Dark Side. Looking at your photos (which are very nice) I don't see you fishing that way.

    Doesn't look like a pin to me either, a spey or switch.

    is it a spey? I have never seen a switch can't say, but it looked like a 2 hand rod to me.

    Both sticks in the pictures are spey rods, one is a Scott LS2 1307 the other is a Loomis Kispiox Dredger 9/10 at 14 ft
