  1. Was out at Muir on Sunday. The platform needs some help (badly) . I was one of those who helped put it up and I know first hand how difficult it was. I left at noon on the Saturday (after pulling an all nighter after work) and never saw the finished product. It is still not finished and not in the best of shape. Are we scheduling another work party soon to complete this project and will someone be there that has put these platforms together before? I know we all kind of just made it up as we went along, not knowing the what if's, especially when dealing with that type of lake bottom. Maybe something we can bring up tonight at the TU meeting tonight Michael.
  2. Hey FF, welcome to Edmonton. You came to the right place, the NLFT&F's are prob the friendliest group of fly anglers on the planet and a yearly membership is only $20.00. You can't beat that for everything they have to offer. As far as Flies 'N' Beer , it's free to anyone that wants to attend (over the age of 18) and happens the first Monday of every month (next one is July 5th) at Santannas. Hope you come out, enjoy some suds and talk some BS.

    Flies & Beer

    I had a great time yesterday, Pike on fly in the morning and Flies 'N' Beer in the evening. Thanks to everyone who showed up for Flies 'N' Beer, had a good turn out and that's what we need to keep this thing going. Special thanks to Lance (Ranger Bob) for the dvd's and his five alarm hotwings Can't wait 'til we do it again P.S. That's the fastest flies I've ever tied Just glad I got them done in time.

    Pike On The Fly

    Change of plans guys. The wind is way to strong for Wabamun, it would be suicide in a tube so I'm gonna hit Jackfish Lake instead. There is a bay right beside the launch that we can fish in relative safety. Hope you can join me.

    Flies & Beer

    Just a reminder that Flies 'N' Beer is this Monday night at 7pm. Hope you can all make it. We need some people out to keep it going

    Pike On The Fly

    Hey RB, sorry it took so long to respond, I had that stupid Sasser virus and could only use my work comp. All cleared up now though. Anyway, I'm gonna get to Wab between 5:30 and 6:30am. I'll fish 'till about noon or so. I'll launch from the dock at the town of Wabamun unless it to windy then I'll launch from the warm water discharge at the powerplant. Hope to see you and some others there.

    Pike On The Fly

    All are welcome and don't forget to bring your cameras. Bring both poppers and streamers as well, you never know what they'll be hitting. Other tools to remember... Jaw Spreaders (A Must!) Long Needle Nose Pliers (A Must!) Barbless Flies Slow Sinking Line or split shot (most of the water you'll fish is only 6-8ft deep) Floating line (in case the poppers are going off or you use split shot) Hope to see some folks out and if you could let everyone at the next meeting know about the Flies 'N' Beer as well as the Pike trip, that would be great

    Pike On The Fly

    Dennis, although I haven't fished topwater for Pike out of Wab in the early summer as of yet, I have at Jackfish lake and found that sunrise to about 11am or 6pm - dark on flat water (windless days) are the best for Pike on the Fly. They seem to go deeper as the day goes on but cruise the shallows in the mornings and evenings. Not sure about sub surface in early summer as far as afternoons go at Wab as I've never fished at this time for them. As far as June 07th, I'd have to go early as I gotta be at the bar by 6:30pm . I'd prob want to get out myself at around 5 or 6am but what ever time people want to show is no prob, I'll stay 'til about 11 o'clock or noon.
  11. If anyone is interested, I was thinking of hitting Wab for Pike on the fly before the Flies & Beer on Monday June 07th. If you are interested, post here and let's set something up.

    Muir Lake

    Let 'em go to Chickakoo. It winterkilled again anywhoo and nobody is really fishing it. Chickakoo is surounded by trees so there is almost no wind for them to worry about. Just my two cents.

    Flies & Beer

    Mmmmmmm... Curry I'm the type of guy that will eat a wing (or some curried lamb) and Umbridge and complain how hot it is, wipe my forhead (and sometimes tears from my eyes) and go for more When I was younger, my buddies and I would each put 5 bucks in the pot and who ever could last the longest eating the hottest wings we could make or order without taking a drink of anything, would take the pot. I won my share of pots but it was a painful display of manhood Now I really can't wait for the next Flies 'N' Beer P.S. The wings gotts taste good to though. I've had hot wings before that were hotter than hell but tastle like sh#t

    Flies & Beer

    Pretty neat how the heat on the wings are timed eh? They get hotter and hotter as you finish them up. Bring your sauce next time Bob, I love "HOT" food and would get a kick out of your 5 alarm wings

    Flies & Beer

    RB, also a pleasure meeting you and everyone else that showed up. Hell, Brian even came with his neck brace (now there's a trooper). Lot's of fun tying with you guys, now we just have to get out and fish together. We'll do another flies and beer the first Monday in June and see if more will come out to this one. I'm hitting Spring Monday morning to try these Christmas Chronies there and see if I can tube a lunker. Thanks for the support and lets get some tyers in there to pay for our waitress Shari.

    Flies & Beer

    I agree Dennis. We just need the bodies there as I have to justify to my partner why I'm opening and paying a staff member. The first one went well but the second one could have been a lot better. Of course the second one was right after the Outdoor show and I know a lot of guys were just plain tired of tying all weekend. Just so everyone knows, we've got $1.75 mugs of darft and $3.50 for a dozen wings. This specail is only on for flies and beer and you don't have to be a member to come down so bring you friends.

    Flies & Beer

    You guys think it's a good idea to run flies and beer all summer? Do you think tiers will come out just to tie a few and do some bulls##tting? Or maybe just have it going from fall through spring? Just want everyones two cents Personally I think that since it only happens one day a month, it may give the club memebers a chance to get together over the summer and trade some stories.
  20. Just want to remind everyone that we are hosting "Flies & Beer" at Santannas (17930-Stony Plain Road) at 7pm Monday June 07. Bring a base for your vise if you have one and a lamp is a must. Specials on beer & wings, bring the wives as all are welcome over the age of 18. For those of you in the fly swap, you can make this the day to tie up your 10 flies. If you don't feel like tying, just come on down to chat and have a brew. Cheers, Doc *NOTE: Our last Flies 'N' Beer for 2004 will be held on Monday October 18th. This special Flies 'N' Beer will feature a tying demonstration by stillwater expert Phil Rowley with his StillWater and Superfly tying material. Flies 'N' Beer will resume in the spring of 2005.
