  1. Well, shall we start by a one-day float? Let's start by trying to narrow down a couple options for the day. QT
  2. I have the week of 22-29 July off...but both weekends have previous commitments. Other than that, almost any weekend this summer would work. Dan, I wonder if there's a boat out there you could rent or borrow? As for how I got the boat.....It's a secret recipe of puppy dog eyes, whining, flattery, surprise gifts, and extra household chores. I'm sure there's another secret ingredient too....but I wouldn't dare tell. QT
  3. I've got a pontoon boat now....wow, did I ever have to spend a lot of marital brownie points on that one!...... but, a float trip down the Red Deer River is a bit of a problem on one's own. I can't use the truck to drop me off, and pick me up too... Is anyone interested in getting a small group together for an all-day, or two-day (overnight camping) trip down the Red Deer River this summer? I think it would be a blast. If we get a few together, I'll start building a plan.... QT
  4. I've booked site 10. Still not sure if it will be just the boy and I, or the whole family. QT
  5. I think I'm in. Will most likely bring the 11 yr old, and maybe the rest of the family. QT
  6. Yeah, for the most part; however, the new stockers were still game for almost anything. QT
  7. At Muir, the fishing was great on Saturday night, with quite a hatch coming off after sunset. I went out again last night, and the fishing was a bit off; only stocker seemed to be caught by anyone at all. There was a bit of a hatch around 730, but it didn't last long enough for my fishing parterner to get ready and onto the water. I did notice lots of floaties, including dead snails, into the middle of the lake. QT
  8. There are lots and lots of fish in Muir Lake, as of last Saturday. There's also easy boat access, and parking. Read the signs before you fish, as there's a bait ban and a size restriction to pay attention to. QT
  9. The ice is gone. Caught a few stockers when the rains came through last night. QT
  10. I won't be able to go to the Muir Lake cleanup; I have been told that I have a new priority for that day. I was there last night though, and at 8pm when I drove into the parking lot, there were already 14 vehicles there. The ice was 80% gone, and the fish were rising with faire regularity. QT
  11. Where is "here"? I'd like to hear more of your program. QT
  12. If the club is looking to add a few members, I've got a relatively cheap advertsising option. How often have you sat in a waiting area, with the only reading material around being of the decidedly domestic type: ie, chataleine, good housekeeping, or some other such stuff? My suggestion is to have some cheap stickers made with the club emblem and website, stick them to the front of fly-fishing / fly-tying magazines that are donated by members, and leave them in doctors' office, dealership waiting areas, barber shop, etc. QT
  13. I may not be able to make it right at 9am, but my children and I will be out with garbage bags, and something to catch bugs in! We have a small barbeque that I can thrown onto the back of the truck. It isn't exactly a "portable", but let me know if you need me to bring it out. QT

    For Shame!

    I agree with the locking of the thread. The conversation had run it's course. Creating angst and argument is certainly not the healthiest way to promote longterm participation. Let's instead put our posting energies into the very types of topics you wanted to see more of. QT
  15. Fun read. I just keep hearing about "life-like motion" over and over again. Then, I hear about "very selective trout" and their need for a tiny fly that closely resembles the food of the hour. QT
  16. I'm not sure; which would be more expensive? QT

    Hi All

    Depends on how quick of a study you are with your spelling lessons, really. QT
  18. Sorry, Greg. I should have taken this post down. We're heading down in my little Tacoma, to save gas using the 4 cyl. It would be very uncomfortable to sit in the back for hours. Maybe next time, m8 QT
  19. Personally, I don't think fish are nearly as sensitive to regional patterns as we are. I'm happy to see any good fly-tying. Now, that doesn't mean I'll be able to emulate it, but I can certainly admire them. QT
  20. Thanks, Don. That's perfect! QT

    Hi All

    Where's the velcro gloves?? Welcome, Tony QT
  22. Somebody mentioned the other day that they were keeping their eyes on the waterflow data for a few spots west of Red Deer -- specifically, Stauffer Creek. Can anyone tell me where they find that data? QT
  23. Hey wolf, I'm not positive, but I think you may need to add an option for your poll. I can only see the options "against" and "shy". I couldn't vote for "for." As for me, I voted "shy". I enjoy tying, but don't have a lot of time for it (career, family, fishing...etc). I'd likely participate, as long as the intent was for fun and for self-motivation to tie. The expectations would need to be fairly low. Oh...and how to exchange? QT
