Thanks for the report.
Was wondering how it is up  there.
Seams to have tapered off for Kokanee the last 5 years or so.

I would make a list of the types of flys you use and then go spend $39.95 at a reputable shop who carries locally tied flys.
Don't support slave labour.

A few years back there was a guy selling coffee and snacks from a van at Lickman Road and Tamahi. Served a dual purpose of providing nourishment to hungry fishermen and keeping an eye out for thieves. Is he still out there ?
No but i a good idea, have not heard of any proglems there lately as is a high traffic area most of the time.

In my experience, the flies themselves will be fine. The hooks... That is another matter. My guess us they will be dull and rust easy but that is easy to rectify. If a guy has the time to sit down and sharpen 120 hooks (I guess you could do it while watching TV) then why not. Unless you are dry fly fishing or making show flies I think people put way too much emphasis on the exactness of a fly. I caught lots of fish on the flies I tied as a kid with zero training and only a very vague picture book. (I could kiss the man who invented whip finishers after I heard about them). If you can have a say in what they send you ask for mostly chironomids, scuds and streamers. They will work!

Now, before I get torn apart; I am not saying that quality doesn't matter. I am just saying that my buddy gets upset when I say I will take of his seconds as they are not up to his standard and I catch just as many fish as him. I try very hard to make the best quality flies I can, and though I am not a master fly tyer, I am decent and always learning. But come on, have you seen what passed for flies 100 years ago? They still caught fish.

Well, I wouldn't call Matthews a "tread" but he is really, really  good.  As a Canuck fan I'm jealous we didn't draft him, but the Canucks showed class and did not do what the Leafs did, which was to basically play the Marlies during the final games to guarantee a good drafting position.  Some might say it is much like flossing ... legal, but jaysussss.

If the Canucks had tanked last year in their final 3 games against California teams (they won all 3), Matthews or Laine might be in their line up tonight.

The Leafs are a good team and getting better but did they get there in a proper manner?  Maybe this how today's hockey management is supposed to work; and work it did, but it still doesn't sit right with me.
It's a real dilemma. Teams should play to win each game but if they lost these final 3 games last year & had a % of getting a higher draft pick....
As FA is stating the Canucks are basically throwing in the rooks thus better chance to lose...
If the Canucks get some great players it truly could spark into having a great competitive team.
As the Canucks are done it's a good time to transition to cheer on Canadian teams to go all the way to Stanley.
FA for GM. He has not said one bad thing about the Canucks.
He even makes losses into positives ;D
Go Oilers Go Go Sens Go Habs Go Go Leafs Go...to he__!
Just joking Chris ...Go Leafs Go...
Please in your up coming advisor meeting give my congrads to Mr Auston Matthews. ( the grandson of Matthews famed CFL coach  ::))

A dumb question; Can somebody ask ICBC to put a few bait cars in the area? I'm sure the insurance claims for broken windows have already pinched them badly.
