  1. Dennis holding the trophy of the day - it put up a good fight!
  2. Photo of Ken demonstrating proper Tenkara technique - photo taken after he went a little too deep for his chest high waders. He did dry out after a few hours. We did catch a few Grayling so it did make the climb out a little less of a workout.
  3. Vince Excellent film, thanks for sharing the link. I agree, it is the people we choose to surround ourselves with that truly make the difference. I hope you made today a great day with your family and friends. Rick
  4. Hi Dave Trying to send you a PM, please clean out your mailbox. RIck

Quenton 2102 Alberta fishing regs: Red Deer River  from the Dickson Dam downstream to the Tolman Bridge and Main Stem Named and Unnamed Tributaries (excluding the Blindman and Medicine Rivers) (Sec.

  6. Vince with his first fish on Bamboo Good net job! Can the smile get any bigger? Very nice Cutt Vince Hey Vince, where are we going next? Have a great one Vince, enjoy every cast and fish on your bamboo!!! RIck
  7. Hi Dennis I am available for either fishing or driving lessons, your choice, same price. Rick
  8. Hi Tyler To correct Dave the Silver King I landed was on a 10 weight Sage Xi2 (not a Temple Fork rod) with a Sage 3500D large arbor reel. Next time I go for Tarpon I will have a 12 weight. As for an ultra light rod I have both 0 and 1 weight rods. Both are excellent for small stream use. The rod protects the 6X to 8X tippets so you can really put maximum pressure onto the fish and land them quicker than with a heavier rod with the same tippet. If you are using a heavier tippet then the rules change. My suggestion is for you to do more research, Goggle "ultralight fly fishing" and read for yourself some first hand info on ultralight rods, reels, etc. There are a number of websites specific to fishing these rods. When I first entered the world of ultralights I heard a lot of "info" that I have proven false over a period of time. You need to talk to anglers who have fished the 000 to 3 weights in a varity of situations. Rick L
  9. One post on another board said that when he went ice fishing at Beaumont Pond in late winter he saw a "lot of dead fish" on the video camera. Beaumont Pond usually overwinters Rainbows quite well due to the depths on the north end of the pond. I have not heard any other reports of a possible winter kill. We should know soon. Rick
  10. Dave Send the Pres the dates for the next casting seminar Rick

    Beaumont Pond is 15 minutes from home, great place in the evening to cast to rising trout. Majority will be the current year stock with a few noteworthy exceptions. PB is over 5 pounds shaped like a football. It fishes well until mid to late June then the water heats up and they go deep. Good luck Rick
  12. Terry Too easy identifing the angler, the best ticket seller NLFT&F has ever had, the winner of a Sage ZXL rod. The stream, I will need to eleminate myself as the angler in question and I had a great conversation regarding the waters he fished on his visit to southern Alberta. Rick
  13. You both will need to check with Dennis due to my poor memory of the events. I do remember Lauren fishing upstream and Dave fishing downstream of me. Dennis was somewhere downstream. Possibly my memory was affected by the home made baking that I enjoyed and I choose not to put any future home made goodies on the line.
  14. Rainbow Very nice. 6X tippet with a boatman or backswimmer? Rick
  15. Vince states that if he had my budget he knows what he would get - SLT 3 weight 8'3" - great rod for small streams. A favorite rod for a few years now. I can agree with Llama Leech on the 0 weight, I toss a 1 weight 8'1" every once in a while. Lots of fun. If you want some interesting reading oneday "Google" ultralight fly fishing, nice read on fishing 000, 00, 0, 1, 2, and 3 weight rods and landing larger fish, not always trout, but larger fish including Bass. Find the write-up on the world flyfishing championships this year in europe and the rod of choice is a 10' five weight for small streams. Rick
  16. Hi Pauline Our seminar is the third weekend of January and the Calgary FFE is the following weekend. No conflict with the dates. Rick
  17. One of Pigeon Lakes finest - fun on a fly rod. According to the young lady from the ACA who surveyed me after I got off the water today, I outdid the vast majority of bait chuckers for the three hours I was on the water.
  18. View of stream we looked at.
  19. Vince fighting the big one of the day
