    Remember the post about " Is It Time" I had many suggestions from a lot of people.Brought these suggestions to the heads of both organizations[ACA.F&W] to where our licence fees go.The intend was to get it in writing as a proposal for a regulation change[November].It was met with ,the usual response.But i am hopeful.It appears that even the NDP,were NOT in favor of raising,licence fees,for all.Having seniors pay & utilizing these extra fees ,for aerators .In lakes that are aerated,for some that aren't .ie Bullshead ......Hoping something comes out of the efforts

    You got the inside scoop on any interesting regulation changes coming this April?

    Yup. Too bad because I find the fb sites get overloaded with stuff I don’t give a **** about. I prefer the forums as easier to pick out the threads of interest.

    Figured it was more of a sign of this forum dying a prolonged death?

  13. What the hell is going on. Not one internet battle this winter. Maybe we are getting way too mellow. I just knew that legalizing weed would be the downfall of society. please bring back the old days. Don
  14. This week I interview Dom Swentosky of the Troutbitten blog, which is one of my favorites because I like the way he thinks about fishing problems and solutions. We titled it “Old School Streamer Fishing” and that’s how it starts, but Dom also discusses an innovative way of fishing streamers on mono, on a tight line, similar to the way a lot of people fish nymphs today. So in my view it’s a mix of old and new techniques. In the Fly Box this week, we have the following questions: What kind of sinking line do I need for walleyes in 10 feet of water? What is the best way to organize fly-tying material? Do you have a good way of testing streamer patterns during the winter when you can’t fish them? Does it matter what kind of material I use for wings on bonefish flies? How do I modify my knotless leader? Do you have any suggestions for fishing beaver ponds? What suggestions do you have for swinging steelhead flies when the water depth varies greatly? How can I fish leech imitations in a river that is 15 to 30 feet deep for walleyes? What is the best way to fish an incoming tide for stripers? How should I target sharks on the fly? How do I catch carp in a deep muddy lake where they don’t come into the shallows except to spawn?

    History of Athabaska Rainbows

    While I don't disagree with the criticism towards the feds...The Province and those employees who had the chance to do address many of these issues did nothing.

    Sling bag recommendations

    I own the older fishpond delta. It’s a nice pack but there are some things I’m not a huge fan of. The pouch with the water proof zipper doesn’t make much sense as there are holes in the bottom of it, and it is not very comfortable to wear on really long trips and you might need to switch shoulders (if your carrying a lot), but that could be the case with most sling packs.

    This is the net hung over the main compartment, from the d-ring, on the Patagonia Stealth Atom sling. The rod holder straps work great for my rolled up wading jacket. Ken

    Sling bag recommendations

    I've been using the previous generation of the Patagonia Stealth Atom sling for a couple of years and have been happy with it's flexibility. Lots of room to hang crap from the strap as you can see! I keep a small fly box in my left shirt pocket and between that and the fly patch, I don't end up having to swing the main compartment around very often. I like the fact that the water bottle pouch on the Patagonia slings are on the outside of the main compartment. I can get my water bottle without swinging the main compartment around. The Smith Creek rod holder is convenient for fly changes in the river and releasing fish. I hang my net from the d-ring using a magnetic holder at the top of the loop, not from the end of the handle. That way the net nestles on top of the sling and doesn't swing around at all. I don't find re-attaching the net any more awkward than with the vest I previously used. Ken

    Ive been using my Patagonia Sling for ~5 years, and wouldn't look back. It's been great. It also has the best D-Loop positioning I've seen for a net (i dont carry a net anymore), pretty well lines up exactly like you were wearing a vest.

    I wear a vest most of the time but if it is raining or bad weather I use my Fishpond Thundrpack, it's waterproof.
  21. Thieves stole all my gear from my trailer in September and I'm now starting to replace everything . I am considering a sling pack to replace my vest. I have looked at the Fishpond and Simm's options and I'm having a difficult time deciding. I haven't tried or looked at the Orvis, Umpqua or Patagonia packs yet but I intend to very soon.. There are so many different bags to try on. Each has great features and things that I don't like. It seems that carrying a net with these packs is very awkward and I haven't really found a perfect solution for that problem. Top on my list right now are the Fishpond Summit sling, Fishpond Delta and Simms Ambi Sling. I was hoping to get some feed back from my fellow fly fishermen to help me make my decision. I would appreciate any advice on any sling pack. Pro's...cons as well as any net solutions. Thanks everybody!!

  24. This week’s podcast is about a relatively rare but also easily accessible fly-rod fish—the Guadalupe bass. I was lucky enough to get Alvin Dedeaux of All Water Guides to talk about these interesting members of the bass/sunfish family. They sound like the perfect fly-rod target, available year-round in central Texas. They are a native species, they eat a lot of small prey, they fight well, and they are readily accessible on smaller rivers on public water. In the Fly Box this week, we have the following questions: What setup do I need for fishing from shore in southern California salt water? Will my 8-weight Encounter rod work? What is fishing in Cuba like? How do I keep from foul-hooking steelhead? How do I play one or should I break it off? And is it ethical to take a photo of a foul-hooked fish? Why don’t more anglers use nets on smaller trout? What tips would you give a younger Tom if you could go back and give yourself advice? Should I use fluorocarbon leaders on small mountain streams? How should I clean my Ultralight Waders? Can you recommend one or two all-around adhesives for fly tying, for someone on a budget? What material is best for tails on parachute flies? Do you wrap shiny-side-up or shiny-side-down on parachute hackles? For bass, panfish, pike, stripers, and bigger trout water, should I buy a 6-weight or 8-weight fiberglass rod? What do I do to emergers to get them to float just in the surface film? View the full article

    Solarez Experience

    The LED lights for resin fusing are 395nm. The visible spectrum that our eyes can see is 380-740nm, so the LED lights are barely into the UV (UVA)
  26. I looked at this and there is nothing new. No increase in access sites and other than the improvements to outhouses and garbage bins nothing else concrete either.
  27. So many have been concerned in the recent past that something may(may not) be seriously wrong with the trout population. As a response it is suggested we should increase access and promote further commercialization of the river valley. Apparently 2+2=1 when considering stressors. Are we going to love it to death? It will be interesting to watch how nature responds
