  1. Did anyone get out to the N.Ram this week? Looking for conditions. Hoping to get out Monday and Tuesday of next week.
  2. Count me in. Had a great time on my first one last year. Met some great people and learned a few things too. Jim, I'll try to remember to bring scotch instead of beer this time.LOL Dave
  3. and now no vehicles in Parks, provincial parks or recreational areas...confused as well aout the no parking on the side of roads or private property. Does this mean for instance, parking by the bridge on SR761 and walking on to the Stauffer is not allowed. What if I have permission to park on private property. I certainly don't disagree with the reasoning behind keeping parks etc closed to vehicle traffic, but i have never had to worry about keeping a social distance from someone on a stream or river. https://albertaparks.ca/albertaparksca/news-events/alberta-environment-and-parks-response-to-covid-19/
  4. Thanks Michael, now I've got a couple things to keep me busy for a couple months. Dave
  5. Great two days on the North Ram. Had the whole stretch from nice n' easy to the bridge all to myself. Caught a decent number of cutties and broke off a good number of flies on the ones I lost. Oh well. Lots of risers to size 16-18 adams' as per usual this time of year, and yes Jim, i did get one on the "hippie stomper" as well.
  6. Anybody planning on spending a couple days around the North Ram this week? I'm headed there on Wednesday if you're looking for company.
  7. What a great few days on the North Ram with a group of terrific fellas. Jim, wally Terry, Michael, Jimmy, Irwin and the rest of you, I had a great time and really appreciate you showing me the conclave ropes, even though i passed on all that scotch. The weather could've been better but the fishing was perfect...except for my last cast on the last day when a 20+ cuttie snapped my St. Croix Legend. If i can find the video on my laptop I'll post here. it was pretty funny, but i managed to handline it in anyway. Thanks again. Wish I could join you on The freeman this weekend, but the wife has other plans.
  8. Jim, just an update on the North Fork Road. I travelled it last Week and it was in fine shape (relatively speaking). It had just been graded and I didn't see any sign of construction work going on.Heading down on Tuesday and staying at Strachan campground for the night and then up to Nice & Easy. Dave
  9. Thanks Michael. I am looking forward to it if I can convince Fern to go.
  10. Not familiar with "Nice & Easy". Is it a private campground, or is it that horseback staging area on the NFR? I usual boondock further west.
  11. Planning a day trip up to the Little Smokey next Wednesday. Would welcome some company if anyone's interested. Wondering about the condition of the Bigstone Road too.
  12. Thanks Michael. I also found a website (Get Bit Outdoors) that sells new cork handles. Not sure if they have the one i need. Going to check further.
  13. I would very much appreciate any help you can give me. As soon as i uncork my next bottle of red, I'll try your suggestion to fill in the eaten area with the shaved cork. . Dave
  14. I wasn't sure where to place this one but i recently inherited a St. Croix Legend rod. Unfortunately it appears a mouse made a meal out of the cork handle. Does anyone know someone locally that could repair or replace it? TIA> Dave
  15. It's starting to get a little chilly at night so I'm going to give the N. Ram one last overnight trip tomorrow(Wednesday) and Thursday. The plan is to hit the N. Ram tomorrow and then head to the Prairie later in the day, camp overnight, fish the Prairie in the morning and the Stauffer in the afternoon. Last minute decision but if anyone's interested in joining me, send off a PM. Dave
