Cambell River Canada 7/26 - 8/1
Got all fired up at the Fred hall show and booked a trip up to Canada at a place called Painters Lodge in Cambell River Vancouver Island. Took the whole family and after much debate decided to drive it. Of course that meant we needed a new van with a DVD player for the kids. And, man did that occupy them they never once said the dreaded " R we there yet "? What a great trip. The fishing was marginal with my big Chinook (25lb)coming on the last of 4 days of fishing. However the kids caught 2 or 3 , 5lb Pinks every day that the restaraunt would cook up nightly for our dinner (yum). One day I caught 4 different kinds of salmon. However, all but one had to be released because of crazy closures by species. It tore me up releasing an 18lb dinner feast. But, those are the rules and I was grateful for the ones we did get to keep and eat. I had salmon for dinner 5 nights in a row and am having a BBQ of it tonight. I think my skin is turning pink. So it will be back to white meat Friday as I plan on hitting the Coral. Lets hope the tuna cooperate a bit better than the Chinook. I will attach a few pics.Jorel

I'm a mushroom cloud makin mother fucker................
"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."
