  1. Managed a few trips to Dolberg this season. Busy place, but the fishing has been really exceptional. Both trips saw several 50cm+ fish, and loads or smaller fish. No perch, brown, or tigers though. Will have to make a return trip for those!
  2. All useful stull Neil - thanks.
  3. And when the explanation does come out - can everyone keep it about the lake and the next steps, instead of blaming it on the NDP too? #justsayin
  4. Got an email from Barry today: On Mon, Jul 1, 2013 at 5:17 AM, Barry White <bowriver.barry@gmail.com> wrote: Hey I have been sick and am facing imminent surgery on my colon for a blockage. I met Moses this Spring at the boat show. He, a deaf mute, lives at a Hutterite Colony near Morinville. They have a stocked trout pond and he would like to fly fish and catch his trout. I have been in the hospital in Calgary over a month and am disappointed that I have not been able to, If you guys are interested in helping Moses solve his problem let me know. Barry If anyone is interested in this challenge I know there are two people who would be very grateful... Just email Barry if you think you could help out.
  5. You guys would have been so proud of him. He fished that section like a pro. Well. I suppose he is now. Manager of a Kelowna fly-shop better know how to stalk a brownie.
  6. Well - again I love seeing the patterns favoured for this amazing little creek. As we all know - 80% of success on that stream comes back to preparation, and 20% seems to be the responsibility of the creek itself. Yesterday, I was prepared - but she was an unruly little darlin' of a creek. Not quite ready yet folks... Photo taken looking upstream from BFW bridge. And this - of the 3rd. Seeing the water level at the 3rd bridge meant seeking out this: http://www.flickr.com/photos/scratch/8619334968/in/photostream/lightbox/ and a familiar face landing this: http://www.flickr.com/photos/scratch/8619336246/in/photostream/lightbox/ Hang in there kids - the season is coming!
  7. The number of things I could say is outweighed by the fact that I shouldn't. The system administrators have more than their fair share to deal with... just sayin'.
  8. Footage was captured using a combination of Canon DSLR's and Kodak PlaySports (sadly discontinued now..)
  9. I'm trying to get the priorities straightened out again. If only the club met on friday evenings... then I'd have a hope of attending once in a while. Will have to work on finding a few of you out on the water.
  10. Indeed it is Dennis as you well know. For the record, Five Alive was consumed, but vary a drop of scotch was sullied by it's presence.
  11. Just a little video from last weekend... enjoy Comments welcome.
  12. Don - I may be available to help out on one of those days. Can you confirm either day, or the event in general?
  13. AW - What dave is saying relative to your questions.... 1. Yes. This is a club forum. It was never intended to be the 'be-all' forum for Alberta or western canada. The bulk of users are club members, past and present. 2. No. Dave is not the type to 'bait' people into online flame wars. He was however reiterating the original intents of this site. 3. Where posting patterns is concerned, we're THRILLED to have patterns offered, and shared. What Dave refers to however, is clarity as to the source. If you find a pattern online, and wish to replicate it here - feel free. But provide the SOURCE. I've seen more than one pattern posted where it appeared that the poster was the creator of the pattern, when in fact the content had been duplicated from another place. (You may recall I provided that source to one of your posts.) We hold activities on this forum to the same standard we hold the activities of our members and friends in person - respect, humility and forthright conduct. Simple. So - no. Nobody is being baited, but it's clear that the forum rules of etiquette needed to be clarified.
  14. For some reason, I think you're not 100% truthful here... :wink:
