Just had a phone conversation with a good friend of mine who lives in the Alberni area. The first fairly good push of winter steel has entered the lower river now. He was telling me that the steel on average seem to be a little larger than normal so far. Good news indeed. The water is in great shape and dropping daily. Four years ago the Robertson Creek hachery smolt release shifted from a 50/50 winter and summer steelhead ratio to a 70/30 winter to summer stealhead ratio. This was done to accommodate this systems angling presure. More people fish this system in the winter than the summer/fall months for steelhead. Shaping up to be another good year... :cheers: sage

If one of the bags is a little heavy don't worry about it. All I ask is leave the zipper open a bit. So I can breath...
Good luck boys it won't be long before I'm there... :cheers: sage

All that hard work gone in an instant eh that sucks.. :p Now to find the same zest and appeal
you so feverishly toiled over the first time...I was thinking fairly soon there will be reel time streaming
digital to document these outings via cell phone but can't help but think what is gained in footage
some loss will be levied in the way it was delivered...All the same thats progress.

Lets have it boys..... :happy: Marko
