    What is it. You come on here with your first post and rag on somebody that isn't even here anymore. This was answered six years ago. Please leave these old posts in the past. That is where they belong.

    I also answered this six years ago. Please leave sleeping dogs lie.

    No, it's a soft pad. Anything hard screws up my back.

    like John geirach said " by the time you hear about a fishing spot via the web, you have to assume that every fisherman in the world knows about it and half of them are already there" thats why i choose no to mention the names of the places i fish.

    That put a lot of life in a dead post. I just want to find somewhere in eastern WA to fish other than a lake or the Spokane River that doesn't take 3 hours to get to. People like Kalm just hinder the search.

    Snagged,

    Being brand new to the board, how in the hell did you come to post a reply to a 6 year old thread? Maybe you arrived with a shovel and a keyboard?

    Old man will probably say this, but... buy a map, find a blue squiggly line and go fish it.

    Sadly, :( If it's west of the mountains and ends in the word "creek", It's probably closed to fishing.

    When I fished in Washington State I always mentioned the name of the creek or river I fished. And you know that the next time I went to the fore mentioned creek it wasn't crowded. This thing of talking about where you caught a few fish is over rated. If I told somebody where to fish in a certain spot then that spot was screwed the next time I went to it. So I don't point out a special place to fish, just the creek or river. You have to find your own rock or special place.

    Sean, you hit it on the head holmes. I didnt have the internet until college, so the only resource we had was a beaten up gazetteer and some topo forest service maps. I thank god that was the case, because I have the ability to explore this vast expanse of a planet without the help of the internet. I get it though, it is tempting to ask for instantanious information, to shorten that learning curve. However, if youre digging for instant fishing success, you are missing the point. This pursuit is about more than roping 20 20" fish in a day; its about the journey, the ride to and from water you know, the endless searching for trout water that you can jump across, fish-less early season steelhead trips all for the sake of that take that nearly sends your spey rod into the columbia, memories with people you may know for two minutes and already accept as family.

    I can think of a few places in eastern washington where there are at least dozens of people on here that have no clue what they are, but know they exist. I guarantee these same people would pack their shit, and head out there as soon as they were told what the place was called.
