  1. Beautiful brookie D.! Imagine him when he colours up even more, for the spawn.

    I imagine his neighbors love him!
  3. That's too bad flytire. It is a money saver here. But I imagine you still can buy 5 cent stamps.😎 I don't even know what a regular letter or card costs to mail here anymore. They stopped putting denominations on the regular stamp. Just charge you more for the same stamp next year.
  4. Canada Post will charge the letter rate for anything less than 3/4" thick. If you are mailing any amount or swapping a lot, finding slender containers will pay off. I assume USPS would have a similar policy.
  5. I make my degreaser with a package of bentonite from the wine makers store. No bulk purchase and grinding involved. The small packet with a little water and a few drops of dish soap, makes just enough for a 35mm film canister and stays pliable at least two years without using glycerin.
  6. When I was young in Ontario, we called them shiners.

    I live my life with the principle of respect being upper most. I strive to be respectful in all situations and also unabashedly demand respect from others. Respect for the environment is important. A grown person, too lazy to carry out their trash is an example of ignorance or the selfishness that seems to be more pervasive now. Where I live, if I can see you, you are too close for fishing on this stream. Certainly do not start in the pool I am fishing. I will always stand back and often offer to let others fish thru. Politely explaining/educating that they are spooking the fish I have been working and they won't see as they wade thru. They get out and go around or u turn next time. Actually, the only reason I responded to Mark's query is the fish handling of the holier than thou C&R (or ordinary) crowd that have to take a photo of every fish. Sure, there is much advise on how to do this with minimal harm, and most are keeping up with what style is acceptable on the net today so as not to be sh1t on by the keyboard warriors. My question is why do you need a photo of every fish? These memories do also exist without a digital version.

    Time on the water

    I chase trout and salmon from April to Dec. My local is only 15 min away and I get in 2 or 3 hrs before work, a few times a week. 1 or 2 evenings further afield and all day Sunday. Some weeks I don't see her awake until Saturday. Call her a trout widow.
  9. Looks fantastic Steve. Thanks.

    Mayfly I.D. Please

    Around here, we call that one something small and black.
  11. I do the same with trout flies. Weighted flies get a red head or red band on the head. 👍👍🎣🎣😎😎 Can someone tell me wtf this means?
  12. That is funny Mike! I have a standing order for squirrel tails from my nephews. They don't let the squirrel go.
  13. SilverCreek, I make my life more complicated by comparing the material's colour on the hook when wet to the bug being imitated. Some dubbings change colour drastically when dunked.
  14. I like Ollie. Learned a lot watching his tying and fishing videos.
  15. Warren Duncan ties a Rusty Rat c/w a Robert Service poem. This is poor quality home video of a tv program. For someone of Dunc's renown, and having made hours of community cable shows, etc. I'm surprised that more video is not available easily. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-OwyDwZAHHo
