…Some quality wading boots. Simms’ Vibram wading boots are a tough, comfortable and safe option. They’re bombproof thanks to abrasion-resistant panels, and rubber treads paired with metal lugs give you grip on the slimiest of streambeds. What’s more, “cleanstream” technology keeps “hitch-hiking” organisms, which can latch onto your gear and find their way to non-native environments, causing some severe damage to ecosystems, from crashing your favorite stream’s party.

Man with lake troutThese fish inhabit the colder, deeper waters and sometimes aren’t as easily caught. But if fished correctly can provide quite a fight and a good dinner to boot. The trout are always willing to bite your line, but getting the baits in front of their face is often times the hardest part in fishing lake trout. During the spring when the water temperature is all the same throughout the lake, trout can be caught in depths as shallow as five feet. But that only lasts a few weeks after ice out. They look for water temperatures of about 46 or 48 degrees. So during the summer months, trout can be found in depths of anywhere between 50 and 100 feet. Trout hang out on steep structure where they can have access to the deep water. So focus on sharp drop-offs.
The reel’s simple design is ideally suited to teaching young kids to cast. It’s less complex than a baitcaster and less prone to line twists and tangles than a traditional open-faced spinning reel. The 5.2:1 gear ratio gives budding anglers just the right blend of power and speed. The combo also comes with fishing line and tackle, including a selection of crankbaits, float bobbers, jig heads, soft lures, swivels and sinkers suited to a range of different fishing situations. A tackle box is also offered for an additional fee.

Bass are pound for pound the best fighting fish in canoe country which is why they are so popular among anglers all over the country, and especially in the boundary waters. Bass become more and more active as the water warms and the temperatures increase. They spawn in very warm shallow bays and are very protective of their beds. Ideally they like to spawn in water temperatures of about 58 to 62 degrees. So usually by early to mid June the Bass really start hitting top water lures thrown into the shallow bays that warm the fastest. And the smallmouth stay active all summer long and are your best bet if you’re looking for some action during those hot summer days. Evenings can also produce some fantastic action in the shallows… it pays to eat dinner early and then go out from your campsite to enjoy the “night bite”.


Bobbers, or floaters as they’re sometimes called, help you know when you’re getting bites from a fish. When a fish bites, the bobber sinks. As soon as that happens, you know you’re ready to reel your catch in. Again, you have some choices when it comes to bobbers. The bobbers most people are familiar with are the round red and white plastic ones. The round bobbers are nice because you just have to clip them to the line in order to attach them. However, the round bobber does limit how deep you can cast a line.

A sinker or plummet is a weight used when angling to force the lure or bait to sink more rapidly or to increase the distance that it may be cast. The ordinary plain sinker is traditionally made of lead. It can be practically any shape, and is often shaped round like a pipe-stem, with a swelling in the middle. However, the use of smaller lead based fishing sinkers has now been banned in the UK, Canada and some states in the USA,[4] since lead can cause toxic lead poisoning if ingested. There are loops of brass wire on either end of the sinker to attach the line. Weights can range from a quarter of an ounce for trout fishing up to a couple of pounds or more for sea bass and menhaden.
A fish hook is a device for catching fish either by impaling them in the mouth or, more rarely, by snagging the body of the fish. Fish hooks have been employed for millennia by anglers to catch fresh and saltwater fish. Early hooks were made from the upper bills of eagles and from bones, shells, horns and thorns of plants (Parker 2002). In 2005, the fish hook was chosen by Forbes as one of the top twenty tools in the history of man.[2] Fish hooks are normally attached to some form of line or lure device which connects the caught fish to the angler. There is an enormous variety of fish hooks. Sizes, designs, shapes, and materials are all variable depending on the intended purpose of the hook. They are manufactured for a range of purposes from general fishing to extremely limited and specialized applications. Fish hooks are designed to hold various types of artificial, processed, dead or live baits (bait fishing); to act as the foundation for artificial representations of fish prey (fly fishing); or to be attached to or integrated into other devices that represent fish prey (lure fishing).
When not in use, your child can keep their rod in the included sleek black carry case. Made from 600-denier Oxford fabric, it features convenient handles and a side pocket perfect for storing tackle, line and other fishing accessories. The package also includes an easy-to-use spincast reel, fishing line and a plastic cap that fits over the rod to protect the guide rings in transit. 
I’ve assembled information about several good bets for the budding young fly anglers in your lives. These are not fly rod reviews, as I have not tested any of these products. The point here is to offer a few good options for you parents to consider, and I recommend you visit your local fly shop to check out their selection of kid’s rods first. Please note than any information included here about these rods/outfits comes directly from the manufacturer’s/retailer’s websites and do not reflect the opinion of this reporter.

The swivel sinker is similar to the plain one, except that instead of loops, there are swivels on each end to attach the line. This is a decided improvement, as it prevents the line from twisting and tangling. In trolling, swivel sinkers are indispensable. The slide sinker, for bottom fishing, is a leaden tube which allows the line to slip through it, when the fish bites. This is an excellent arrangement, as the angler can feel the smallest bite, whereas in the other case the fish must first move the sinker before the angler feels him.

Mark’s Wild River trips will take you far beyond where the lodge jet boats operate. To get there we will load a high performance float plane with the correct type of raft and camp and fly fishing gear and the proper amount of supplies. We weigh each angler and piece of gear on electronic scales before loading the airplane. You can bring a maximum of fifty pounds #50. This includes your clothing, waders, boots, rods & reels, Gore-Tex rain jacket, spare tackle, camera etc. Experienced Alaska anglers generally have less than #35 pounds of gear.
Along with helping kids catch more fish and have more fun, buying them their own gear fuels a sense of ownership in their fishing success. Rather than borrowing someone else's equipment, being able to care for and bring to the water their personal fishing arsenal is priceless. With that in mind, we offer a selection of top gear for young guns. Some of it is designed specifically for youths, while other ageless items fit the youth market nicely on their own.

Check out a new downrigger or invest in an electric line puller to make the most of your adventure. Your boat is safe from damage thanks to Short-Stop technology and stainless-steel construction. And, since fishing is the top priority, many downriggers even emit positive ions to neutralize suspicion and create an appealing atmosphere to all the underwater species.
