Armstrong Wins…USADA Sucks Air

USADA is an abusive organization…..Pathetic….Watch Phil Liggett….He never BS’s….just my own interest in cycling and my rejection of bullies and easily swayed public opinion. Evil defamation of character. Lance wins my respect. I watched everyone of those tours….beginning to end. Now what, is Wiggins the next bad boy? He did win awfully easily.


Watches: Water Proof?

More often than not we go fishing to escape the constraints of everyday life, which is almost always subject to time. So why escape only to wear a watch? Well, I am not very good yet telling time by the sun’s positioning against the landscape…give me a week and no clouds and I might figure it out.

In the mean time I wear a watch out of habit. I even wear certain watches when fishing (Dakota’s for me). So, I have never had a watch fail from the submersions into lakes and streams, but I thought I would check out the reliability of ‘waterproof or is it water resistant watches.

Here is what Wiki (Wiki-Leaks? Ha!) says about water submersions. If anyone, beyond a diver’s watch has any recommendations let me know. I do somewhat chart time for hatches, start up and drop off of the bite, tidal changes at the coast and time to head back to camp for dinner….so I can eat and head back out. Waters & Watches Techno Info too


Fly Fishing: Back Channels Hold Possibilities Too

Back channels, this time of year can be rather low with boulders and smaller rocks exposed. Quiet, almost stagnant pools remain where in the Spring and early Summer the water offered possibilities of life (insects and fish). But, if the flows are still there, give that back channel a look.

Often, in our haste to reach the main stem of the stream or river, we descend down the bank, wade through a back channel, move across an island and reach the main stem and stand and ponder the possibilities. Well, when the flows are there, you might stop sooner and study that back channel for possible insect activity, holding water and fish. 

Here is a back channel on the McKenzie Rvier, below the Leaburg Spillway. Trout and Steelhead can be found holding in this water as they circumvent the island to the right. Easy to just wade across this water while moving out to the main stem. At least worth a look see.

Steelhead, Salmon, Trout and Bass can be found in those back channels, which are  really only small segments of the greater whole. My only caution is during certain times of the year those back channels are spawning areas too so rods off during those times.
