This week at the Northern Lights we have

Michael Dell (aka The Stauffer Stocker)

Tying a Catatonic Leech

(No, it's not a drink made by steeping cat hair in tonic water)

There will be no sleeping through this demonstration. :lol:

Dave,

 

You should know the difference between a "stalker" and a "stocker". A stalker creeps up on wild trout and hooks them without letting them know he is behind them.

 

A stocker follows the hatchery truck around. :rolleyes:

 

See you tomorrow.

 

Michael

 

p.s. Surprises may occur.

Ahh Haa.

You caught the double entendre.

I would say that due to your habitiat work that produces more fish

You are indeed a "stocker" although not the kind that drives the hatchery truck.

I'd call the truck driver a "stocker" too, but the truck chaser just "lazy".

For your skills sneaking up on the "stockies" I'd say you are also a "stalker".

So that means you can wear two hats.

A Cowboy hat (or F&W hat) for the "stocker"

And a Shelock Holmes hat also known as a deer "stalker" for the sneaky part.

Stay away from the meerschaum pipe though.

Smoking is bad for you.

Double Entendre - from the French meaning double meaning or intention.

Just tryig to raise the tone around here a bit.

Ah..now I know why you had a smirk on your face at the meeting. I am now, thanks to you, a learned man or is that a learn ed man.

 

I do believe the correct saying is... to raise the bar not to raise the tone. Having said that the more correct version may be ....to find the bar, to sit at the bar and to have a drink at the bar. Ah, but I sit here and pontificate.

 

See you next week Dave

October 26th, 2005

Speaker: Dennis Southwick

Topic: Basic Stream Entomology

 

Comments: Dennis will provide an introduction to the main

types of insects you will encounter on streams and how to

identify the major groups. If you’re nice to him, he might even

tell you what the patterns he commonly uses to imitate them.

I will also be picking up Red Green Swap Flies tonight from the participating swappers present, and bring duct tape for Dennis if he hasn't completed his flies yet. Actually cudos to Dennis, he's the only person whom has reportedly only used duct tape as the sole ingredient on the pattern. Looking forward to seeing them. Alberta Al may get the "tape job" instead from the looks of things... or Doc whom is also MIA.

Duct tape the Prez to the wall....

Does that fall into the category of being a "fly on the wall"?

If so, then what kind would it be?

Cad is Fly?

For November 9th at Northern Lights we have Dipper Dan on deck.

He will be tying up a Wiggler (or is that Wriggler).

This is a two-part nymph that's supposed to Wiggle (Wriggle)

without letting the fish wiggle (wriggle) its way off the hook.

and no, it's not a worm immitation.

This week (November 23rd) at Northern Lights we have the Ranger Bob Show.

Lance Taylor will arise from his sickbed to play with fire.

Flaming ants seem to be the main agenda item.

Should be fun.

The X-mas Chronie (chironomid) and the Redd October (bloodworm). Both very effective attractor patterns and very easy to tie. How would you say... pre-beginner pattern? :blink:just kidding :lol: Anyway, my first presentation, hope to see you folks come out for it.

 

Cheers :cheers:
