I remember that presentation, firstly because it was very well done, and secondly, because it brought back lots of great memories - I did the trip to Amethyst Lake in the mid 80's with my father and brother. It was TimD who gave the presentation.

I did this trip with my brother and a bunch of guys about 10 years ago. Fishing was bad because ice off was late but it was a memorable trip anyway. I'd recommend a late summer trip like this to anyone.

...I did this trip back in 1994, I wasn't into fly fishing then...fishing with plugs, very successful...lots of rainbows and a few brookies...yours truly caught the smallest trout of the group, but I didn't really care, was having too much fun...

 

...the water is crystal clear...it is actually an eerie feeling when you are over at the base of the Rampart mountain range and you float over boulders in the water that are bigger than your house...you can see the fish swimming and hovering at depths below you...really deceiving how deep they are...

 

...I would go back in a heart beat...it was a four hour trip in by horse, the scenery is breathtaking...the outfitters were fantastic, the food and lodging were outstanding...and although it is now under different ownership, I hear nothing but great things about this place...lots to do there, even for the non-fisher...

 

...I took lots of pictures with the old film type camera, I'll see if I can find them and take some pictures of the pictures with the digital and see how they look...if they don't look too bad, I'll post them here...:cheers:

...here we pulled into what is known as "Brookie Bay"...we are on the other side of the lake at the base of the "Rampart Mountains"...as you can see, we had a very safe and reliable source of transportation...notice the oars, motors not allowed...

...an early morning fish outing before breakfast is served...when the frost is present, just a warning, do not run down to the dock, if you do, you cannot stop on the dock, you slide right into the freezing lake...ahhhh nothing like a refreshing dip before breakfast...

Hey Paul -- no doubt you noticed in the dining hall, the wall plaque for the MacLean Trophy, which is awarded each year to the person that caught the largest fish. Of course you would have seen that TMH was the winner back around 1984 -- a beauty rainbow that was pushing 6lbs. The fishing during our trip was cosmic, and fortunately, I was into fly fishing at the time. Thanks for posting the photos -- they brought back even more good memories. Terry
