Got to meet one of your contemporaries here in Medford. Taking a header off a two story roof has its 'drawbacks' due to sudden deceleration.

How could you hate canadians? They are clueless, I mean harmless....

We Canadians usually appreciate well spoken humor--But there is always a exception to the rule-isn`t there?

Conductor for Canadian National Railway, taking trains from Smithers to Prince George or Prince Rupert. The hours can be rough but the scenery is jaw dropping and I always know what kind of shape the rivers are in. Saw a Kermode bear on my last trip west.

I've been a winemaker for 30+ years. I'm gainfully employed by a larger winery in California's Central Coast. Most of the wine I make goes into Mark West pinot noir. I also have my own micro-boutique label; La Filice Winery(FB), and craft Rhone-style wines. I'm a reformed powder-hound that got hit hard by the "swinging for steelhead, and 2-hand rod" bug several years ago. Damn near all I think about. Oh yeah, I tie as well; Dragginflys.com. Beyond help, I'm afraid.
Best.

Awesome! You're a lucky man to see that animal. Very cool.

Work

I'm a newb here on the Spey Clave and also a newb with a spey rod. I work for the State of AK division of Agriculture. My job is promoting/developing small scale farms in rural Alaska. I get to travel in bush planes all over the state to remote communities and help them grow stuff. While in the bush I always find somewhere to fish, and often they are pristine fisheries.

Evil like Evil Knievel?
That's true we are a little bit casse-cou, especially in our pristine salmon rivers

Lawyer. Sole practitioner for over 20 years, doing criminal and family litigation. Nothing sweeter than finishing court in Terrace at noon and sliding out to the local rivers to spey fish for a few hours. I try to plan my court appearances around when the steelhead are in the rivers I want to fish, so I'm in Terrace a lot in the fall. I'm pretty damn lucky.

Tight lines, my friends.

Went off to college in 1967 to become an architect. Discovered the Age of Aquarius and sex, drugs, and rock & roll. When the haze finally cleared in the mid-70s I discovered I had learned to fly cast and was a fisheries biologist instead. Shaved, got a haircut and have been a semi-respectable member of society ever since.
