  1. The family Charadriiformes includes charadriidae (plovers, of which kildeer is one), recurvirostridae (avocets and stilts), scolopacidae ( all the shorebirds that Garhan mentioned) and laridae which includes all gulls.
  2. Thanks Dan, As you can tell, now that I work Wednesday evenings, I don't get on the site that often. Hope it may change some day soon Hank
  3. What? I thought Italians thought it was by divine right that they win every World Cup. As far as the reception they will receive. I would rather be Italian than French.
  4. Hey Jim, When you get a chance, perhaps supply a map to the area. I'm hoping that this date works for me. Thanks, Hank
  5. Work related stuff has left me conspicuously absent as of late, but that will hopefully change soon. Proposed dates sound good. Hank
  6. So Don, when was the last time you tasted a bull.
  7. Why does Bill look like he is: a few sandwiches short of a picnic a few fries short of a Happy Meal a few bricks short of a load etc, etc, Hank
  8. We should all combine our bids and get the Nymph Fishing Basics and present it to Vincenzo. Hank
  9. Thinking of maybe heading north of whitecourt on Monday for a "Free" trip to a rive between Whitecourt and Swan Hills. Let me know if it works for you. Hank (Believe it or not, it would be my first trip of the year)
  10. "Muirnight Madness"??? Now why does that sound oddly familiar? Hank
  11. Rangerbob, Thank you kind sir. Although my Freedom 75 has been extended to Freedom 85 with this economic downturn. Only a few more months of mayhem before I will be able to attend at least every second meeting. Time to start tying again. Hank
  12. Here's what I got for Christmas. My first grand daughter; Clara Idelle, born Dec. 25, 2008 Hank
  13. I also want to add my "thank you" to Lance and Jim for all they did in setting this up. Even though I wasn't able to attend the main events, having the opportunity to fish new waters and learning to fish these streams was invaluable. Extra thanks to Jim and Mike D. for spending some extra time with me Friday, making sure I caught my first few cutties. What beautiful country and good company. Hank
  14. Oh yeah, this will be my first time in the area, having never fished for cutthroat or bulls. Any tips on fly selection would be helpful. Hank
  15. Friend of mine was at the Firehole on Saturday and said the goldeye were rising all over the place. The walleye were definitely smaller than usual as mentioned. Hank
  16. Hey, look who is coming out of the woodwork. Just like Joe I haven't wet a line this year yet. Have just found out that I can arrange a few days this week. So, if possible I would like to join the klave. Not sure if I will be able to join the swap with the time remaining but I'll see what I can do. The days I can come are Thurs- Sat. Let me know if this is ok and if there is anything else I can do. Thanks Hank
  17. Not to be a party pooper. There may still be a small problem. February is not an odd numbered month, as per Vinces prerequisite. Hank
  18. Hey Tim I've asked Emmerson if he knew of anyone who could only go Sunday, since I'm only able to go Saturday. Let me know how to arrange the ticket I have , to get in to your hands Hank
  19. Thinking of heading out for the day to the Freeman River or similar on Tues. or Wed. Anyone interested? Hank
  20. Emailed The director for Alberta Environment, Central Alberta Division. He emailed me back asking for my phone number which I did. A field representative from Spruce Grove phoned me and asked exactly what I saw. He then said that the dept gets a ton of these calls all the time and what it usually is, is natural. I guess there are natural iron deposits which come to the surface mixed with water when it is unusually wet. That's the chocolate brown liquid. The flourescent, rainbow liquid effect(which I thought was gas) is supposedly some sort of iron bacteria, and he gave me some ideas to tell the difference. I'm not sure what to believe, but I will admit I didn't smell gas. He's in the area on Sept. 6th and said he would have a look. Hank
  21. Was out around Edson area on Tuesday. Spent the last hour on Sundance Creek. Decided to take a peek on the west side of the hwy. About 30 yards from the bridge I came across a small stream(pool) of Chocolate brown sludge mixed with what looked like gasoline. It was running into the creek. Just wondering if anyone knew who I should let know. Hank
  22. Hey, Been a little out of the loop lately. Also for some reason I can't download June's newsletter. Just wondering what was on tonites agenda. Believe it or not I went out for the first time this morning, so if the gangs heading out somewhere tonite please leave a post where. Thanks, Hank
  23. Sorry I missed joining you last night, Scratch and Lance. Unfortunately I was in T.H.'s for another reason and couldn't join you. I've missed the wing and beer thing at Runways. Wiyh everyone going to Timmys all the time I've not bothered. Maybe we can make it another time. Hank
  24. Never been in Grant Mcewan campus, so wondering if any one could be a little more specific to the location of Hughes Schollmeyer . Room #6-212. Also best place for parking. Thanks, Hank
