  1. The Phenological Fly takes the mystery out of meeting and matching the fabled insect super-hatches of the West with a proven and original approach to enhancing angling success. This guide links the appearance of the insect super-hatches (their phenology) to the blooming of native streamside wildflowers, shrubs and trees. Illustrated with detailed, full-color photographs of insects with their corresponding blooms.
  2. My brother and I went to the Blackstone on Saturday. The river was slightly off-color (maybe 2' - 3' of visibility). No rises seen all day. Only a couple of (very) small cutts on the dry. Everything else was caught with nymphs/streamers. Spoke to a couple of guys camped near the bridge and they went to Brown creek for the day. Sounds like they had similar conditions/success.
  3. I drove the Willow Creek road in June to past that spot. Agree that the road can have a lot of washboards if the graders haven't been busy. but road was in great shape when I drove it, but it can be very dusty (and slow)
  4. no,no,no. You don't fix one screw up with another. You'll decimate the aquatic organisms before they even have half a chance to recover.
  5. So basically the ACA screwed up our fisheries.....thanks guys.... btw, get some new lawyers..
  6. I can confirm that at least 1 brown survived the winter.
  7. Not 100%, just a few slivers of ice remaining. With the temps and the wind/waves it should be gone today/tomorrow. This is about 10 days earlier that I have seen it open in the last 13 years. No signs of any dead fish.
  8. Is that taken with, an iPhone ?????? ewwwwwww. Nice fish buddy.
  9. Sounds like your success at Pit 24 is identical to mine. What's up with that lake ?
  10. Draw was last night no ? Who won ?
  11. 2015 Regs just came out and not a mention about tigers being stocked
  12. It was patterned after the large chironomids found in Hihume Lake. After his retirement, the good Doctor spent his summers fishing the BC Interior Lakes, a favorite being Janice Lake. Doc Spratley passed away in 1968 but his legacy continues to be enjoyed by fly fishers worldwide.
  13. That's not Shemeluk, that's Brodyk lake. Shemeluk is just a few hundred yards to the Northeast.
  14. My suggestion to watch that movie was not about "emissions", but rather 'fuel economy" In the movie it talks about fuel economy, and the auto manufacturers increased it in their vehicles ONLY AND AFTER legislation was passed forcing them to increase it.
  15. You all need to watch the video "Who killed the Electric car ?" VERY enlightening.
  16. Perhaps the club could at the start of the meeting ask if there are any 1st time attendees / recent new members in the crowd and introduce them and maybe get/ask for a brief history about them. Such as: Hi, I'm so and so, I've started ffing 3 years now, I usually fish Edson potholes and the occasional es stream. My favourite species to angle for is the brookie. I do/don't tie flies, I troll alot and don't enjoy chironomiding. I can't do a double haul yet and I have yet to catch a brown. This information may help break the ice and may allow a fellow member to more easily approach you and say, " I can teach you to double haul if you're interested ?" etc... Just a thought....
  17. I've had my pt boat for a few years now, and in my opinion, if you want to reach that set up time, you'll have to keep your frame together and stuff in your vehicle. Then when you arrive at a lake, pull out frame, inflate pontoons, strap to frame and bob's your uncle. Doing it this way, I takes me about 15 minutes. Hope that helps. Tight lines
  18. You might want to look into the 'Backroad Mapbook' http://www.backroadmapbooks.com/index.php?...;region=praries

    Golden Trout

    A well respected fly-fisher who used to write a trout update for one of our local fishing magazines (someone once called him the Wayne Gretzky of fly fishermen in these parts) posted this in 2006 on the old Fly Fish Alberta website about the goldens in the Barnaby Lakes..... "To catch a big golden now, your best bet would be to go to Barnaby 6-8 years after a stocking. Next year (2007) or the year after (2008). After that most will be dead of old age and you have to wait until they stock it again, then wait for 'em to grow up. The Barnaby lakes should all be on a 2 year stocking cycle but they aren't so timing becomes everything, at least for the biggies. Sad thing is, there are thousands of doomed fry that perish every fall in the outlet of Rainy that could be transferred, but it seldom happens". Hope that helps. Pierre
  20. If you believe that sort of thing.... Moon Movie
  21. you've caught all 12 species of salmonids ?
  22. from my post on Stonefly's message board http://flyfishalberta.com/boards/index.php...c=4134&hl=edith
  23. I don't think Maligne is suited for fly-casting from shore Beautiful surroundings though . Don't know about the others.
