Hello to everyone here. I'm located in Nanaimo on the island, and have found a new 2017 TW at a local dealer that I pick up on the weekend. (I'm not a fan of brown so I'm happy to find the 2017)
I just sold a pair of BW200's that me and a buddy owned but haven't ridden in a few years due to his new bride and relocation. I am recently retired at 58 and miss the trails, so I'm going to forge ahead on my own. Sharing my riding time with salmon fishing locally, which is actually really good this year. Lots of springs around. I'm looking forward to riding the TW to the marina instead of the pickup. So I need a good rack and tub for packing my anchovies and packing the salmon.
With your posts I have found many great ideas and links for accessories, thanks for having a great forum with no drama.
In my working days, I spent allot of time in the mountains of this area working on forestry equiptment, and have been quite high up in the logging areas to see many views the average islander would never see. It's a beautiful island with many small lakes scattered all over.
So I will be looking for a nice 4 piece fly rod and case to pack as will I guess. Once I get it all together.
I tried on my Joe Rocket jacket last night and low and behold it is not going to zip up any more. Maybe some trail shaking will remove some weight if I'm lucky.
Anyways, that's a bit about me. Thanks again for the great posts and info.

Welcome. You and I are on very similar paths, albeit across the water in Powell River. Considering buying a packraft to strap on a rack to fish every little lake in the area with an ultralight rod. My little Nordic Tug has been neglected this spring since I purchased the TW.
