  1. Sigh....once more I work Wed. and Thursday and 4am just comes too early on work days.....Inconnu kicks the sand, curses and wanders off into the muskeg mumbling to himself.
  2. You're a good man I don't care what the other reineer say....er or was that reindeer?
  3. Thanks RB I appreciate the information. For what it is worth, the main dock at Muir would be very easy to make wheelchair friendly. I will look for other places etc. thanks again...Kerry
  4. I'll come if I am able to energize myself. I will be just getting back from a float trip on the Bow the day before, I plan to drive down, fish and drive home, but I would like to do this. Now if I can just find Stauffer....
  5. Is there anywhere around that has a wheelchair accessable fishing area? That would mean somewhere that was safe once they got there to fish as well. I have a co-worker who is in a chair who likes to fish, but there is a lack of areas to fish that are accessable unless he has someone to help him get to it. I also ran into a fellow at the BM pond who was fishing in a chair, but had help to get to the pond edge (the actual park is fairly wheelchair friendly), but there is no level or proper area for a chair to sit in safety (IMO). I have a physically challenged daughter who was in a chair for awhile and I realized just how lacking B.C. was in these facilities, so I am wondering about this area? This is not a criticism just exploring a thought and your input is appreciated...Kerry
  6. Hi Scratch. Hey is there any way to edit the spelling in the title? It doesn't seem to be possible to edit anything but the body of the post? I misspelled Fisherman.....yeesh! In one of my posts....sigh and now the world knows I am verbally challenged. :lol:
  7. Hi there! Well I went to Muir Lake a week ago, more just to find it than fish it. I was totally impressed by the work all of you have done there, very informative, well done useable, I loved it! The fishing pier is interesting and I see the challenges there that you have to deal with. The question I had was, why is it so high off the water? Is it to allow for flycasting? Or to allow for lake levels coming up? The reason I ask, id that being from the coast I have spent alot of time on piers, wharves and floats and I was wondering if you had thought of having this floating as well? Obviously you have and I am just missing the point, but to deal with tides, some marinas and private dock owners have put in pilings, built the float to fit between them and then used steel rings to slide over the piles and bolt to the wharf, so that the wharf floats up and down with the water level. Put a hinged ramp to the main walk and it allows for quite a bit of level fluctuation. I know I am missing the point of the height off the surface, I was thinking back cast? Anyway, my 1/4 of a Looneys' worth. I would like to be able to make it for a work party here one day, I will keep watching the posts...Kerry

    I suppose after already posting I should say hello properly. I moved here from Fort St. John B.C. last September and have only really had time to fish the pond in Beaumont, where I live. Up north I fished for Dollies, Pike, Walleye, Grayling and brookies as well as Rainbows, with the flyrod, though I am not against fishing plastic baits once in awhile. I have been tying off and on since I was 12, but I've sort of gone to "out of the box" tying which means I am not really good at any one thing, but I get by. I spend alot of time looking for new materials and do the bulk of my tying in the Winter of course. I have held alot of swaps over the last few years, which has been alot of fun, but where I was living was not exactly fly tyer heaven as far as having other tyers to meet with and chat with, so having a club to join is a pretty cool thing. When my shift allows me to make a meeting I will be buying a membership. Looking forward to meeting more of you (met Scratch and Firefly at Muir).....Kerry
  9. I would like to join as well, if you had an online printable form it would be easier. Hopefully I can actually make it to a meeting this Fall....Kerry
