  1. I recently acquired an old shaving brush, that was made sometime in the 1950's. I'm trying to figure out what fly pattern is in the handle. Any ideas?
  2. lol - thx for the wishes - it was a good one I never had an issue with b-day close to Christmas
  3. fyi - Trout Unlimited in the US has a very active twitter account: http://twitter.com/troutunlimited - and over 1700 followers Hi Vince - haven't you been getting the Fly Fusion mag - along with the Currents insert?
  4. Sorry to resurrect this - but Twitter would also be an excellent means of promoting the January Fly Tying events - as well as casting clinics. Posts could be automated as weekly meeting reminders, and also to promote new posts to the web site, promote the videos that were recently added to youtube(great job btw!), and so on...
  5. Great story Dennis! - sounds like a blast! One of these days I'll have to see if I can't tag along... My Jeep has a winch that I don't get a chance to use often ;^) Sorry I don't have any stories myself - I have only been out one afternoon this season! Next year will be different for sure!
  6. That way you could have pictures in your book too!
  7. No problem Vince! At the bottom of the main forum page, there's a section "Forthcoming Calendar Events within the next 14 days" - easily overlooked I think
  8. Boys What's going on tonight? http://forum.nlft.org/index.php?act=calend...mp;event_id=166 Swan Lake flies...
  9. Hope you have a good one old man ! Cheers
  10. Yep - my Facebook account has gone the way of the dodo as well... thanks for tweeting the link Greg! "users don't use Facebook, Facebook uses users"
  11. What about RB's suggestion in the small fly swap thread? ;^) The Procrastinator ... which reminds me... you get your flies done yet? lol
  12. Being unable to make it out to the meeting last Wednesday it was great being able to watch the twitvid - nice job Lance! Now, this club to the south - I really - I mean REALLY like this aspect of their meeting nights :^) Gonna have to swing by Sherbrooke and see if they stock it now!
  13. good job on the presentation! I think that I just have to apply some of how I like my coffee to my fly selections ;^) Black and happy!
  14. I would like to check out some lakes between Prince George and Prince Rupert. Any suggestions/recommendations?
  15. I follow Scratch's shopping approach - and as result, haven't had to venture far from home at all to get what I need/want. The SS Fishing Hole has been more than accommodating with regards to special orders (they brought in a magnifying lens for my vise/vice?). I'm not really big into shopping - I will research first on the net to get an idea of the price of something, but after that, once I get into a shop and find what I'm after, I buy it - provided its not ridiculously overpriced based on my net research. If I can't find what I'm after in town, I go online. Never been in, or bought from a Calgary shop - but I'm still a newb ;^) I never go to WEM, but I do occasionally make it into the north side FH - not often, perhaps once or twice in a year. May not have always found what I wanted, but service has always been good. The guys at the Fishing Centre were totally helpful when I made my big step into fly-fishing after that weekend a few years back at Swan fishing with Shan (and a pile of borrowed equipment from Ian). I don't make it in there very often anymore though - probably more due to its location than anything else. I do look forward to checking out the new Wholesale Sports on the south side...where abouts exactly is it?
  16. This thread reminds me of a Monty Python skit...er, No it doesn't What was LeRoy's saying about opinions?
  17. Thanks for the birthday wishes!
  18. looks like it might be interesting... The Lost World of Mr Hardy http://www.trufflepigfilms.com/index.html
  19. Trust all is well! btw, I enjoyed your article in the latest Fly Fusion!
  20. ^^^^^ What he said! :thumbup: Was a good day indeed - definitely enjoyed seeing Leroy in person. Most memorable quote: "Advice and opinions are like butts. Some stink, some don't, but everyones got one..."
  21. Hope you had a good one, and got in lots of trouble!
  22. He passed away October 28th. Darren did a write up on the Woolly Bugger in the latest issue of Fly Fusion http://obits.pennlive.com/obituaries/pennl...p;pid=135155501 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Woolly_Bugger http://www.flycraftangling.com/flies_arc.html?a=39
