Vanquish Spey Reel
All great salmon/steelhead reels incorporate waterproof drag systems. Waterworks/Lamson has been perfecting waterproof drag systems over the past ten years. You probably remember our report on testing the V12 Vanquish Reel while fishing the Sea of Cortez last summer: Insider Newsletter 07/12/09. Now the V10 is also available. Our test model V10LT has been loaded with a Rio AFS shooting head Spey line and 200-yards of #50 TUF Line XP backing. It will make a perfect companion reel for our Sage 7126-4 TCX (featured a  week ago).

Vanquish: the ultimate blue water weapon
may also be the ultimate Spey Reel!

Waterworks says, "As the name implies, we created the Vanquish reel with just one thing in mind -- total victory."
Vanquish: the ultimate blue water weapon!
This is a big game reel...built to subdue fish that weigh over 200-pounds, yet weighs only 10-oz.
If it can vanquish such monsters, it will have little trouble with salmon and steelhead.
 
"V" is vor victory!
Thes reels are ultra-large arbor design and super-strong, yet very lightweight. Vanquish is clean with no projections or sharp corners to get line wrapped around or irritate your skin.

Two Day Summer Steelhead Fly Fishing School, October 17-18, 2009

I will be glad to net your fish...  Photo by: Dean Finnerty

Take a jet boat ride on the Deschutes River with: 
Mark Bachmann
This crash course in summer steelhead fishing will cover a lot of water
and fishing knowledge in two days. We will be camped on premium steelhead water.
Summer Steelhead will bite any time of day on the Deschutes River, 
however odds go way up during the low light hours of morning and evening.  
That is why we are starting early and are staying late.  
I want to give you maximum advantage 
by having as many fish hooked during these classes as possible.  
Nothing teaches you more about fishing than being where 
fish are being hooked and landed.
Emphasis will be on floating line fishing, 
but will also cover sinking tip fishing during mid-day periods. 
Emphasis will be on two-hand fly rod casting and fishing.
Learn how to locate steelhead water and how to approach it. 
Watch an expert guide as he fishes and discloses the secrets
 and proven methods that put fish on the beach.  
Get a lot of hands on help so that you too can be productive.
Save yourself five years of experimenting on your own. 
Bring your own waders & rain gear.  Dress for cold mornings & evenings.
Bring your own tackle.
Price includes Deschutes Boaters Pass.
Meet at Mack's Canyon at 8:00am arrive back at 5:30pm.
How to get to Mack's Canyon

Under Wader Wear
Change is happening Fall is here. The Earth is cooling and so is the water. You comfort depends on what you wear under your waders. If you fish in the fall you have probably noticed that the days are getting shorter and the nights are getting cooler. The way you dress will make or break your fishing experience. It's better to be overdressed then underdressed. Remember if you have too much on you can always take it off.
Fall Is Here. Temperatures Are Dropping, Dress For Success

WaderWick™ Fleece  
Pants, Black Zip Top, Black  

We used to think that all fleece under-garments were created equal.  That is until a trip down the Missouri River in late October.  My cheap fleece didn't get the job done, and I was shivering all day.  That evening we stopped at the local fly shop to find another layer to put on.  What they had was Simms WaderWick™ Fleece.  I thought wow, 50-bucks, but bought a top.  The next two days on the river were much more comfortable, even though the air and

water temperatures never changed. We learned a valuable lesson about fleece.   WaderWick™ Fleece is worth the extra money when the weather is cold.  It wears well and looks good.  Regular WaderWick™ is for moderate temperature conditions or for an extra layer under the fleece layer for when the conditions are extremely cold.
