  1. Country Pleasures

    To All Forum Members, We regret that, due to a number of factors, the shop closed for business this past weekend. We do wish to thank all of the people who supported the shop for the last 36 years.
  2. 3 Days Only! November 24-26. Items up to 70% OFF.
  3. Policemans

    If we might inject ourselves into your conversation, the statement that TU did nothing but improve aesthetics at Mallard Point isn't really accurate. The work done there was to deter bank erosion and improve foundation stability of that bank. Something that was pretty necessary considering the bank erosion and resultant instability left by the flood of 2013. As for Policeman's, that is private land and we, as a group, should be careful how much gas we throw on that fire lest we lose it completely.
  4. Trout Unlimited Conservation Projects Come and meet members of T.U. Projects Committee, who will outline projects done recently and projects coming up. They have done a bunch of great stuff in the last year, with more projects to be done. Trout Unlimited focus on habitat projects has greatly improved over the last couple of years. This is the perfect opportunity for you to come and see how you can participate. If we use the resource, we should help the resource! All seminars start at 10:00 am and will end between 11:00 and noon. There is no charge and no pre-registration required. Simply drop by the shop and enjoy the seminar.

  7. Breaking: List Of Closures

    As a matter of policy, we pretty much never respond to any opinion put forward on this forum, but this one cannot be ignored. Toolman, could you let us know when you have seen lower flow volumes at this time of year, as of this morning it was at 58 cms. And although no one can say that water temperatures haven't gotten in and around the low 20 celsius mark in years past, never can I remember a sustained duration of above critical temps. This is one of the factors that led to the ASRD decision on temporary closures. I can't believe that someone who proclaims to spend as much time as you utilizing a specific resource would even consider publicly posting dissent when the fishery is seeing a threat it has never seen before. ASRD gets our full support on this decision, as well as any further steps they deem necessary to protect our fisheries. Shame on you! Mike Gifford Country Pleasures
