No fishing for this guy since November. The snow isn't going anywhere now, it's settled in 'til spring with a new blanket every couple days or so. The temps have been ok so far in December but they're forecasting for -32c on Monday (that's -25.6F for my American friends). Ya I know that's dam cold. I started a new job, back into management and back into the liquor industry. I'm basically concentrating on that right now but I am working on a new video project. It's going slow, might have it done by middle of January. I haven't started my Christmas shopping yet, like most guys I wait 'til the last minute. I can usually find some really good deals in the last days before Christmas so it's all good. My yougests daughter Hunter just celebrated her 10th birthday on Wednesday. She's making me feel old, seems like yesterday we brought her home from the hospital all bundled up with that little touque and the little mits. I can't beleive it's been ten years already. Back in Novemeber I got an e-mail from JibJab regarding their make a dancing Elf website. I did a few up, one with Phil and one each for both of my daughters but just the other day I was checking out the Rogue Angels Blog and seen they did one with their fishing buddies. So I decided to do another one up with some of the guys at my fly fishing forum.

Your feature presentation. Staring: Gums (monster Pike), Jokey (forum moderator), Phil Rowley (forum expert), Ayer (he posts the most pics on the forum) and myself (administrator). Hope you enjoy.

No fishing? So I must ask what have you been tying? Got any crappie/bass wonder's? I've been tying mostly smaller trout flies but I have been thinking about the Mississippi River in my back yard and the crappie, bass, and pike it holds. Good luck til the snow melts.

Haven't tied a dam thing. I have been working on a new video regarding the set-up I use for stillwater fly fishing using chironomids. That won't be ready 'til January. I am planning on doing some videos tying some of my stillwater patterns for the up-coming season. For now though, just concentrating on my new job. BTW, we don't have Crappie or Bass in Alberta (although I wish we did. I'm sure Bass is a blast on a fly rod or so I've been told).

You learn something new everyday! I'll be checking in for that video. Good luck with the new employment, I hope it makes you happy. I've never caught a bass or crappie on the fly but I plan on trying alot this summer. Perhaps a pike or carp too. Take care
