  1. 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.
  2. Thanks Lornce, let’s all stay safe for the holidays and look forward to the summer fun we can have sans-covid.
  3. 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.
  4. I’d seen this before, thanks for bringing it up again
  5. Thanks, looks like it will be much easier to travel up and down, specially with any other traffic on the road
  6. Does anyone have pictures or a web site address that shows the work being done to upgrade (?) access
  7. I agree with your proposal. This forum is not Ki#j##
  8. Well that’s different, original and colourful. Very nice tie
  9. I feel for the Pro guides, not so much for the “privateers” who only do 5 or so trips a season. Also feel for the shops and their staff. Hopefully there is some form of financial support going to help guides and shops. This pandemic will undoubtedly change things and I hope most make out OK in moving fwd as this situation evolves. Hang in there folks, you are a valuable element of our sport.
  10. It is and will be a matter of enforcement and education. I don’t expect any level of government to allocate limited resources to enforcement. Educational signage as required and as much social media/electronic advisories & information, e.g. Prov. Website, ACA, TU, et al will do a lot but ultimately it will be self enforcement by individual anglers that will make the most sense. Hopefully we anglers can do that better than anyone else without needing “adult supervision”
  11. There is social distancing, if/when you need to go out for essentials. Then there is self- isolation as in stay home. So hopefully fishing folks can figure out what’s best to do. I’m doing both of the above.
  12. I just sent minister Nixon a short note to say thank you for the effort, and to encourage him and the cabinet to continue with this type of initiative. I have 3 grandkids aged, 3,6 and 9 and I take them out every year to a local stocked pond with Kids Can Fish days and we have a blast. I’m now encouraged that they will be able to do the same with their own kids and maybe grandkids, later in life, while in watch them most likely for my cloudy perch. $46M in these tough days is a lot, but small in light of the overall budgets, but well invested not just for us current fisherman but also for all
  13. 1- Worst season ever, P.S. been fishing the Bow for over 30 years 2- F&W doing a fish count last Friday, sept 13 3- For me and fishing buddies, a good day on the Bow means good company, nice weather, and one or two releases, this year had the first 2 but lacked the 3rd 4- “The River is not the same as it was...... nor am I, and likely never will be, but still could be a nice recreational fishery 5- Concerned that this might increase pressure on other accessible fisheries like mountain streams 6- Would not object to additional regulations and/or constraints on the
  14. I do mine in a two tone version, dark on top and lighter on bottom. I use PT for the top and mini wing case and marabou for the bottom and tail
