  10. That book is Awesome , Thanks Ken for Posting , FlyRod .
  11. Washington state prohibits anglers from taking wild steelhead and salmon out of the water for a photo before the fish is released. After watching YouTube this morning, perhaps it is time that Alberta implements a similar regulation for at least bull trout. I'm not sure how it would work for other trout since on some water you are allowed to keep trout.
  12. JimBow, I am so damn Sorry to hear this news. I can remember hiking Scott's gear up to the top of Elbow Lake for an overnighter of all you can catch Brookites. https://www.google.com/maps/place/Elbow+Lake/@50.640049,-115.0105907,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x53705f6e9706e2c1:0x1525dac12ebb7acc!8m2!3d50.6388975!4d-115.008587 He is already missed.
  13. Hey Neil, You should be able to get it back - some hoops to jump through - but all things are possible. Somebody told me that once.
  14. You got any more of that black licorice hooch?

  15. Jebuz, I am starting to look like Barry "Santa" White. Yes, a great book indeed. I got a few signed copies for friends and family. PS - Is this Covid BS over with yet? Just got my first AZ shot two days ago. Oh boy... the Fever and Chills after 24 hours were not fun! PMS - I have been hanging out with the Ham Radio guys these days. Soon, I will get back into fishing. - 73 - VA6LAT

  21. Thanks for the interest. Calls for volunteers will be posted in the Northern Lights Newsletter that goes out monthly to TUC members, Next newsletter goes out on April 20th. Some volunteer anglers will be needed for the grayling project on the upper Pembina in May. For insurance/liability reasons we have to restrict this to members of TUC, however.
  22. Where will the volunteer information be posted for these projects? I’d love to help out with a couple this year if I can.

  24. As part of our conservation project, we will be collecting fin clips from Arctic Grayling in the Upper Pembina watershed. DNA will be extracted from the fin clips for analysis later in the summer. Northern Lights chapter members will be primarily working in Rat Creek, although there are opportunities in Lovett River and other tributaries. These waters are closed to recreational angling, so we must follow strict guidelines per our fisheries research license in addition to safety and covid protocols. Anglers will be required to attend a short orientation session via Zoom meeting.
  25. During his Zoom presentation on April 7, Jim McLennan talked of his concerns over coal mining in the eastern slopes. He recommended that we visit MountainsnotMines for background on the issue and that we express our opinions as individuals.

Wildlife - this expansive area represents cri
