  1. Bow River (Fish Cr Park) Calgary

    Angling Outside BC
    Hit the Bow last week with the fly rod just upstream of Fish creek, unfortunately the river was completely blown from the torrential rains that they had there.

    I've always fried rainbows as they've come out of the lake. However, at times I've seen guys de-scale them with something that looks like an SOS pad. Not sure why. Anyone know of any particular reason to do so?
