  1. Has anyone here used a company called "Custom Girl Feathers"? I'm told they make feathers for women(and maybe men) to string up in their hair. Apparently they are real feathers that vary from 7 to 11 inches long and are ideal for hackles.
  2. Anyone on the forum planning a trip to the N. Ram this weerk?
  3. Hi Jim, I've never been up that way..what's the best way to go..from Highway 43 or from Edson? How are the roads?. Is there available firewood or do we bring our own? Is there an outhouse? I'll be coming up on Wednesday morning, where exactly will everyone be parked? That's all for now.
  4. Hey Jim,

    I've never fished the Berland or the Athabasca, so I've got questions.

    You mentioned the great floats, but I don't have a boat or pontoon, so how accessible are the two for walk and wade?

    Are there "facilities" at the campsite? How do you access the campsite?

    Google earth can't find the co-ordinates you sent...do you have any specific directions from Edson?

    I'm sure I'll think of other questions as I've wanted to fish that area for many years.

    Sorry to be a pain, thanks for your help.

  5. Jim, is that not the Aylmer PRA?
  6. Heading down on Tuesday for four days...looks like the weather is improving.
  7. Sure must have scared a few people off...there was nobody except a family of five and me Wednesday and Thursday. So as an add-on, I bought my pass today through Albertarelm. I noticed on the way down to the N. Ram that there was nobody camping along the North Fork road either.. On my way home I took the long way down the trunk road and saw no more than half a dozen boondockers alongside the road, except at the N. Ram/Trunk Road crossing, which was packed as usual. Met only two guys on the river, and they were both from Rocky.
  8. Just curious as to whether "Nice & Easy" is private land or comes under the crown land designation . I believe if it's the latter you need to buy some sort of camping pass, if I'm not mistaken.. Anyone know?
  9. Thanks for putting this up on the board. I had to miss it last wednesday due to prior commitments.
  10. Already booked it off with the "boss" Dave
  11. One last shot Thursday and Friday. I'm hitting up the Stauffer and Prairie on Thursday then heading to the N. Ram on Friday. Does anybody know of any campsites open around Caroline or Rocky. My usual spots have all closed .

    N. Ram is low and clear, fishing was slow, only 5 the first day and 2 on Tuesday, but there was nobody on the river except me and a black bear aout 100 yards east of the bridge over the N. Ram.

    Thanks for the info, Fred.Passed on the N. Ram. Gave the Stauffer, Raven and Prairie a shot, a few brookies on the Prairie and that was it. I'm planning for the N. Ram Tuesday/Wednesday.

    Anybody planning a trip to nice & easy next week?
  16. Thanks for that. Hopefully the stable weather pattern will help improve things by Monday and all the weekenders will be back "working out of home".
  17. Hoping to head out to the N. Ram on Tuesday or Wednesday, but would like to take a shot at the Prairie near Strachan as well as Stauffer and the Raven. Anybody know how conditions are? Dave
  18. FYI folks, The North Fork Road has re-opened for anyone who wants to take a side trip to the N. Ram Dave
  19. Did anyone get out to the N.Ram this week? Looking for conditions. Hoping to get out Monday and Tuesday of next week.
  20. Count me in. Had a great time on my first one last year. Met some great people and learned a few things too. Jim, I'll try to remember to bring scotch instead of beer this time.LOL Dave
  21. and now no vehicles in Parks, provincial parks or recreational areas...confused as well aout the no parking on the side of roads or private property. Does this mean for instance, parking by the bridge on SR761 and walking on to the Stauffer is not allowed. What if I have permission to park on private property. I certainly don't disagree with the reasoning behind keeping parks etc closed to vehicle traffic, but i have never had to worry about keeping a social distance from someone on a stream or river. https://albertaparks.ca/albertaparksca/news-events/alberta-environment-and-parks-response-to-covid-19/
  22. Thanks Michael, now I've got a couple things to keep me busy for a couple months. Dave
  23. Great two days on the North Ram. Had the whole stretch from nice n' easy to the bridge all to myself. Caught a decent number of cutties and broke off a good number of flies on the ones I lost. Oh well. Lots of risers to size 16-18 adams' as per usual this time of year, and yes Jim, i did get one on the "hippie stomper" as well.
