  14. Hi my handle is FiskPete, but go by Peter Patershuk. My son and I have returned to Fly Fishing this summer. I fly fished 50 years ago. What I knew about fly fishing was rudimentary and still is. By chance I met Rob Boisvert at Spring Lake north of Grande Prairie where he gave me a fly which proved to be very productive. Rod spoke very highly of the members of NLFF and suggested that I join even though I live in GP. I haven't been able to find a fly fishing club in the GP area except for a defunct web page. So I am looking forward to leaning as much as I can even

  18. Aerators are now running at Hasse. ACA decided to add two to the 5 we provided (although one of these is awaiting a new part). Working well so far. If anyone is in the area over the winter please drive in and let me know(Treasurer@nlft.org) if all are running ok. ACA will check periodically but the quicker any breakdown is reported the easier it is to get it fixed. Water quality is good. Hopefully this will be a good rainbow/tiger trout fishery next Spring!
