  1. I fished with a group ( 6 - 8, depending 9n the lake ) several lakes operated at the time by Mikisew Sports Fishing, a” business” entity of the local Ft. Chip band, I think…. That was many years back, 10+, and I know they( ??) shut down that entire operation. So I would suggest that you contact the band office at Ft Chip and find out if/when/how you can access the surrounding lakes. PM me if you want more details…. Pete
  2. For the past several years, I’ve been working hard at becoming a “minimalist” in the gear I carry around. For Chironomids, of which I’ve got a ton after tying them for over 40 years, I’ve gone to having 4 boxes, clear plastic with 12 compartments each that easily hold 4-6 of those tiny little critters in each compartment. Perfect fit in my vest or pontoon boat/belly boat.y That gives me 12 patterns per box, and one box for each of sizes 12-14-16-18, that’s close to 200 flies and I figure if I can’t catch a fish with that assortment, I need to …… Try local shops first and if not, I know that the big box store in town has some of that type of boxes
  3. Very nice tie, should produce some big fish with those subtle colours
  4. Wow! What a fantastic story, I’m sure we have similar stories to be told all around us, if we simply take a bit of time to find them and listen.
  5. Brings back memories of when I rebuilt my Dad’s split cane Rod about 20 years ago. I grave it to my nephew about 6 months ago since he now fishes the same area that Dad did, other than a “newer” fly line, and guides, the rod and reel are still catching those pan fry brookies! Thanks for the memories......
  6. Great idea! I’m in for a doz. Used to take the grandkids to Mitford Pond in Cochrane, no Kids Can Fish last year but stocking took place. A few days after stocking 3-4 Mergansers discovered the buffet and had a great ole time! But before last year we used flies and bobbers on a spin rig, great success. Two years ago, after landing and releasing 5 fish in about 45 minutes, the grandson decided he had enough because he was to only one catching fish and it was not fair for the other kids.
  7. Thanks Lornce, let’s all stay safe for the holidays and look forward to the summer fun we can have sans-covid.
  8. Excellent video(s), thanks. I remember going down to launch and on the last portion just before the last turn having to pass another vehicle coming up. Went a bit too far on the left edge and the road gave in, almost went tumbling but I’ve never since appreciated my 4WD as I did that day.
  9. I’d seen this before, thanks for bringing it up again
  10. Thanks, looks like it will be much easier to travel up and down, specially with any other traffic on the road
  11. Does anyone have pictures or a web site address that shows the work being done to upgrade (?) access
  12. I agree with your proposal. This forum is not Ki#j##
  13. Well that’s different, original and colourful. Very nice tie
