  1. I have a paperback of the second printing you could borrow Rod. Resale is a bit stupid on the book although it is a very good read. ~Skylar
  2. Hello Dennis, I wont be making it out to the first couple meetings this year but as a heads up there may be a couple new faces showing up on Wednesday. Randy Harwood and Steve Blake posted on the facebook page and were interested in the club meetings. I told them to introduce themselves if they show up but keep an eye out just in case they shy away in the back. They are both new to the sport
  3. Retired? Or Just took up the title of professional fisherman.... Have a good one Rod and congrats on the retirement. We will miss you at the meetings. Hope to see you sometime again in the future ~Skylar
  4. Hello John, Thanks for letting us know. I apologise that we did not get back to you with directions and the particulars. Perhaps we can arrange to have you by another evening as our membership would love to see some of your work first hand.
  5. Hello Everyone, Amanda will be bringing cake to the club tonight for everyone to enjoy. ~MrOreoCookie Skylar Robertson
  6. Thanks Dave. See you tomorrow night
  7. I may have missed this during Rod's presentation last week but would anyone be able to tell me what the plan is for this week's meeting? I am just wondering if I should be bringing my vice for a free tie night. Thanks, ~Skylar
  8. Hello Tim, Rod has generously posted full details on two of his ties from last night within the forums under "At the Bench". Look for Rod's Dolberg Wollybugger and Polar UV Ice Copper Bugger. I will definitely be working on a few of these gems myself once I find the materials. ~Skylar
  9. Sounds like a great way to expand my material hoard. I'll be sure to bring my $10 to the Seminar. Thank you Don ~Skylar
  10. Hello Dave, Remediation of a river system is a huge task and you are correct that completely cleaning up a spill on this level is nigh impossible. It is likely that they may add specific plants along the river to help bio remediate the water over time in combination with (I hate to say it) dilution of the contaminants themselves in the river system. If they have hit it earlier it is possible they could have setup a filtration barrier within the river to stop the solids flow downstream but at this point I believe we no longer have that option. depending upon the level of contamination of the soil they may need to dredge the river as well and treat the soil before returning it to its original location. I am interested to see how they try to address this as well given my educational background relates to remediation and water treatment. Given the chemicals in the spill though it is highly likely towns along the river will have to adapt their water treatment systems while this is all being sorted out.
  11. The Alberta government ordered the owner of a coal mine Tuesday to clean up more than a million litres of waste wate that spilled into tributaries of the Athabasca River. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/edmonton/cleanup-of-coal-slurry-spill-into-athabasca-ordered-by-province-1.2432687 Good News? Or To Late? We will have to wait and see.
  12. Latest news on the Athabasca spill. Updated Nov 15th 2013 http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/edmonton/alberta-coal-mine-spill-worries-water-expert-1.2428440 ~Skylar
  13. Here is a link to the story Dennis is talking about. It is interesting to note that the mine was actually in the process of being reclaimed when this occurred. http://www.911metallurgist.com/blog/canadian-river-polluted-by-264-million-gallons-of-muck-from-coal-mine ~Skylar
  14. I would also like to thank everyone for all of the casting and tying advice. It has helped me out alot and i intend to keep practicing over the summer. Hope to see some of you out at Muir lake and the surrounding area over the summer. ~Skylar
