  1. Beautiful rod and a great taper. Kudos to Don.. Mike
  2. If I can add to Peter's post, I have just received a response to a letter I wrote to Shannon Phillips stating the Peace area reallocated resources from other projects to take over aeration from the ACA in that area. The other affected areas did not have enough notice, resources or staff to do the same. The following is an excerpt: The Alberta Government is taking the Alberta Conservation Association’s actions this past season seriously and there will be a review of the Alberta Conservation Association’s aeration program to ensure surface aerators are in place to reduce fish loss next winter. A Memorandum of Understanding with the Alberta Conservation Association is coming up for review and Alberta Environment and Parks wants the new Memorandum of Understanding to have the necessary provisions to ensure such situations are avoided in the future.

  3. The thing that is hardest to swallow is surface aeration was as normal in BC, Manitoba, and parts of Alberta. It appears the only areas that didn't, were the Edmonton Edson and Rocky. area lakes. My question is how come.. Mike
  4. I've been hearing reports of lots of dead fish at Muir. This situation is a bloody disgrace.. Mike
  5. That is good news about Spring.. Thanks for the update.. Mike
  6. I was just reading on another Alberta Forum.. Sounds like they might not make it till freeze-up nevermind winter.. Mike
  7. I would love to get out with you two. You'd be so busy answering all my questions, you wouldn't have time to fish! Have a good day.. Mike
  8. You are more than welcome.. Mike
  9. Sounds good Dave, I'll bring to one of the meetings.. Mike
  10. Hi, I've been going through my gear and materials and have a lot of stuff, I'm never going to use. Would NLFT interested in fly rods, reels (mainly Orvis), capes (Metz and Whiting), assorted quills, biots, dubbing etc.?? If yes, I'll bring it into one of your meetings.. Mike
  11. Has anyone heard the extent of the winterkill at Spring Lake? Been out a few times and the fishing was worse than poor and noticed a few good size carcasses on the bottom.. Mike
  12. Fished Spring lake on the Weekend and the shallows were covered with perch carcasses- thousands of them. Didn't see any trout carcasses but they may have been in deeper water. Caught some trout 8" to 12". Mike
  13. Thanks Dave, Looking forward to attending some Meetings. Regards Mike
  14. Thanks Dennis, Regards Mike
  15. I'm a member of TU Edmonton. Do I have to join NLFT also in order to attend the meetings? I don't know how many meetings I would attend as I'm in Leduc and the drive can be a bit of a bear. Regards Mike
