  1. thanks very much I'll post pictures of all the fish I catch. Neil
  2. has anyone been to the red deer lately just wondering if it is ice free planing a trip next week
  3. Good report from the Freeman, Swan Hills sure is a small town isn't it> Neil
  4. I have to ask where is the water going? I have been in different parts of the Provence where the water level is not down. Are the oil companies pumping down wells? It seems to me that we had lots of rain this year>
  5. Thanks for the input I would have loved to have caught some of those big ones you talk about. Also almost all hookups were in the upper lip indication that they do indeed hit on the way down. neil
  6. I had the opportunity to fish the Freeman River this past week end for Grayling. I had never caught a Grayling before and was very excited to give it a go. I stayed at the campsite where highway 32 crosses the river. The fishing was fantastic, there were a few things that I learned that I had not read about relating to fishing for Grayling. Fist is that all the fish that I caught were in relatively slow moving water, second you have to set the hook immediately just like with Brown trout, third don’t let your leader get ahead of your fly on the drift. All fish were caught on #18 little black parachute fly I’m not sure what it was called. The fish were all around the 10” to 12” size and I landed over 50. A great weekend all around. Neil
  7. I find that when I post things on this site I seldom get any response. It seems that there is a select group of people who communicate with each other but not with others. I would suggest that it is only people who go to the club meetings that talk to each other. I on the other hand work until 9 every night and can’t come to meetings but still enjoy the camaraderie of my online people with similar interests. have a great day...Neil
  8. What a great story thanks for the post I wish there were more like it. don't worry about the spelling but if you do just type in Word of whatever and copy and paste into forum. thanks for making me smile... Neil
  9. The Blackstone was a wash out. It rained almost nonstop for two days and the river high and brown. I ended up driving back to town and getting my boat to head to Dolberg lake. Dolberg was slow but it was fishing.
  10. sure hope this rain doesn't blow out the river
  11. I am off to the Blackstone to try and reproduce the great results I had last time. Will be staying by the bridge in little trailer and blue dakota Thurs Fri and Sat nights. Stop and say hi if you are in the area. I'll take my camera this time and try and get some pictures of those 22 inch cuts. Neil
  12. Just back from a trip to Scotland to catch the open and a few Grilse on the Tweed. Golf was great fishing was better. Neil
  13. The biggest Cuts the most Bulls ever than you Blackstone!
  14. I quess it was expensive now that I have a pontoon boat to replace it.
  15. I went to Dolberg lake on the weekend and it was good and very bad. The good was the fishing the bad was someone stole my float tube. Don't leave anything down by the water even in the middle of the day. Neil
  16. Great report Don. I will be heading down to fish the Clearwater and the Tay on the weekend. Do you have any tips tips for me. thanks Neil
  17. Thanks then I will dress warmly, I will also try the Crowsnest on sunday. thanks neil
  18. Has anyone been down to the Red Deer lately as I was planning a trip next weekend. thanks Neil
  19. Nice pictures and fish. I am going to fish the Stamp river in Port Alberni for Coho and Stealhead next week and will post some pics hopefully of fish.
  20. Not kidding in any way what-so-ever. I would check your stats on Vermont, I have and according to Vermont fish and wildlife fawn survival rates are up. I suppose if the survival was 0% there would be no deer at all in Vermont. I just don't see the killing of animals as justiable. Sorry that we disagree but I quess that is whole idea behind discussion.
  21. I hope clearing out the "gopher population.. and coyotes" doesn't mean what I think it might mean. I would think they are just as important as ducks.
  22. Well, I went to the Ram area on the weekend and had a great time. The water levels were nice for this time of year and the water was gin clear. I didn’t catch as many cuts as I normally do but did get some nice ones. I think the weather was to cool for hatching and had little luck on dries catching most on small leaches. I hiked in to the falls on Fall creek but had no luck. It is about a two hour hike in, what used to be nice natural meadows are now muddy ruts created by ATVs it is a crime what these off road vehicles are doing to our wilderness areas. Once they have dug done so deeply with their machines that they can longer get through they simply drive into the meadows to create new ruts until the same happens again. What to do?
  23. I am going for a 4 day trip to the North Ram and was wondering if anyone could tell me the state of the rivers at the moment. I checked the gov flow charts but I must admit they don't mean much to me. thanks in advance Neil
