Fantastic report and a sweet pic. I grew up in the foothills of Southern Alberta (sadly, live out East now) and still fish there at least once a year. This picture just reminds me of that country. I love those big skies! BTW, the waters I fish there yield some big fish but much smaller crowds. In fact, most days I see more bear and deer than people.
Its been noted here that newbies sometimes get a rough treatment. Here is one response, written by Old Dog, that might help those thinking of making their first post understand a little bit about this place. After you read this take a moment (or two or three) and look around and get a sense of this place. If you're still interested make your intro and join the fray. —Jed
