COME ON hardest fighting freshwater fish a steelhead. Why don't you call it by its real name a RAINBOW trout, Enough Said. I can imagine a bunch of Yankees crowded around a bubbling brook catching RAINBOW trout and talking about what a lovely day it has been and the latest flavor of earl grey tea. Saying something is the Hardest fighting FRESHWATER fish is like talking about women's weightlifting. I literally catch bait that fights harder. Set a hook into a tarpon with light tackle and land it and you will immediately grow more chest hair.

This is me in adolescence after landing my first Tarpon.

Like the old saying goes...
"A Picture tells a Thousand Words"...

If a good day of fishing is determined by the "fight", you should take up another hobby...what's a good day of hunting or shooting to you? How black and blue your shoulder gets?

Methinks Sir Isaac Newton here was actually sitting under a coconut tree instead of ye old apple tree when struck in the noggin...

Those tree stands look nice.

And I thought this would be an informative thread on tree stands. I did a thread search too... Anyway, I'm in the market for a climbing stand for bowhunting. I won't need to pack it more than a mile at best. Will be climbing pines. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Look into Lonewolf and Summit. Both make a good stand.

Exactly why are we digging up threads from 2009? Stratrider we need a bit more info. There are many different types of tree stands. What type of stand are you looking for? a ladder? a climber?

I can tell you this much, I am virtually deaf. Yet I can hear a climbing stand in use a long ways off. When climbing it sounds like someone is cleaning the bark off fence posts.

John_Deer I does depend on the stands design and how smoothly you climb as to ho much noise you make.
I use to be up a tree an 1hr to 1:30 before legal light. Watched shadows of deer walk by in the dark just minutes after I got settled and tied off.

I have used climbers for 25 years. Still from time to time. Easy way to get into new ground for a hunt. and can sit facing the tree or reverse the seating for facing away. Tig welded one of them up out of aluminum some 25 years ago an have an original old man stand . Killed a lot of deer from them with bow and rifle.
This looks like one I would buy today if looking for a climber. This is a lot like my first one but I had a aluminum v bar for adjustment.
