    I can't wax as poetically as Ribwart, Fishortho and others so foregive me (and my lack of spell check). Out Saturday A.M. the concert beacons (headlamps and flashlights lifted and lighted the trail), marking the meat/honey holes; no fires so I guess the camping was at a minimum. Worked my way...

    Fly Fishing Discussion
    Just wanted to mention that the number one way to kill a Steelhead due to catch and release is to catch them over and over in warm flows such as those being experienced right now, in the Fraser Valley. Just becuase a fishery is open does not make it a well planned fishery. Sometimes leaving...
