    That's a nine acre, frozen pond at the edge of the prairies 40 miles west of Edmonton. Technology is sure fattening because now you can see most of it from your couch in minutes.





    The nasty fliers standing on the ice are the Sullenberg assaulting Canada Geese. It's amazing that they don't take down more aircraft with the size of the gaggles and gangs they hang out with.

    Prairie, and I'm talking tidewater! DOH!!

    That ice looked like tidal flats at first glance...

    I need to stop being dumb and lazy and brush up my on my geography. All the popcorn is turning my mind to mush.

    I'll bet there's an app for that! Taking the drive from here to San Diego, Yuma, Phoenix, Tucson was an eye opener. It's quite the rock we're standing on!

    That's it. We stocked the 9 acres with Trout for years but it was tough keeping O2 up. One year the 3"-5" baby trout grew to 3 lbs and there was a bit of panic when Dad and the Uncle pulled over 200 of them into the rowboat from the nets. Now we fish online.

    Somebody else was doing some fishing for transmissions so before we shut the G749 farm down for the winter, two hydromatics fell into the truck.

    While we scheme a plan to get these down South, Stop hey, what's that sound everybody look what's going down....if we don't get a blizzard.

    Yeah, trout really are NOT pond fish.

    What they love is moving, tumbling water, and they pick some of the prettiest water in the world to hang out in.

    THAT'S what makes trout fishing so much fun!
