  1. Thanks for the post. It's important to keep this top of mind. Maybe I'll throw on my life jacket next chinook to err on the side of caution.
  2. A few year end memories

    I second Sage. Show us the way Sensei.
  3. Pics from the 2016-2017 Season

    Thanks for sharing! Those stockers were pretty/huge!
  4. Amazing Giant Trevally Footage

    That was so awesome. I liked the GT at 1:13 - he's a real optimist and hey, credit for playing to the final buzzer.
  5. Mountan trout streams Alberta

    Slightly tangential but related to Kodak, reserve a spot at the Longview Steakhouse on the day(s) you fish the Highwood. Some prime Alberta beef in the best steakhouse I've ever been to and an amazing view of the Rockies/section(s) you just fished. Such a good cap to a day on the water. Make sure you spend some time on the Bow too, that's a potentially great time of the year. Good luck!
  6. Access To Our Favorite Cutty Streams

    Interesting, thanks for the background on the fire rating science gents. Glad to hear the fire ban is lifted, I like my fishing buddies but they aren't cuddle worthy.
  7. Access To Our Favorite Cutty Streams

    Anyone have any insight of what would then go into lifting the fire ban? Hoping to get a late season camping weekend in.
  8. Hike-In Cutties

    Thanks for sharing! We had a newborn in June so posts like these help (slightly) with my lack of fishing this summer. It's part of the long game though - hoping the kids will be on some of those trips with me soon enough.
  9. That's too bad. I've only attended one (last year) but found it an awesome way to shake the winter blues and get super excited for the upcoming season. Really enjoyed seeing the gear, guides etc. and more than anything, the information sessions. I was able to catch clinics from Jim, Gary and Tom and loved 'em. My big takeaway was how cool fly fishing is as a sport/hobby in that you can have several "Gretzky's" of the sport (if you will) in one room and they're all approachable friendly people dispensing advice freely. Will have to check out Lethbridge.
  10. Thanks Peter, I'm signed up and looking forward to it. Kudos to the U of A for the offering as well. Very cool.
  11. Reinforcing Waders

    Exactly Red Beard - Those gaiters are awesome and can pull double duty snowshoeing in the winter.
  12. National Parks License

    Great, thanks for the intel gents.
  13. National Parks License

    Bump... does anyone know if this downtown spot still sells licenses - couldn't google it and find anything. Looking for something downtown or even more info on where to get them in the park. The website is pretty uninformative. Thanks in advance!
  14. Great post, thanks for the reminders! Stay safe out there everyone.
  15. Mid Range 5Wt?

    Bought a Pro 4X a few months ago. Really enjoying it and a huge step up from my previous rig. Definitely go cast several in your price range and see what you like. I brought my lined reel and also played around with 5/6 wt lines on the rods.
