Todd - Motley Crew is pleased to announce that Mike Briggs of Calgary is once again joining our team for the NALS Championship. As our technical expert, he has developed a new sensor system for the team, which will allow us to detect that slight increase in infrared radiation from those fish that are "hungry", relay their position, depth and direction of travel to our members who will then "clean up".  ;) ;)
I Fish - therefore I am!

Thanks Gary! I'm looking forward to having your team at this year's competition.

Could you please let me know the names of your team members as soon as possible. Alos, I'm hoping that some of your team members will have (or be able to borrow) a boat for this event.

Cheers,
Todd

Do we need a boat for the actual event.?If so thats not a problem. If not we can come out with one. Can we use our pontoons pre fishing?

Yes, pontoon boats are acceptable for prefishing before the competition. Just be sure to give some consideration for the wind - if it's blowing hard.

I'd really appreciate it if you guys could bring a boat or 2, as we are relying on the teams to provide at least 2 or 3 boats, as the out-of-town teams that are flying in won't be able to.

Please let me know how many you can supply as well as the size of the motors...

Official update/rule amendment for January 20, 2014:

Tunkwa Lake will be open for unofficial practice on June 16th, 17th, and 18th (boats may be rented at Tunkwa Lake Resort). Competitors are responsible for supplying their own boats for unofficial practice, and can be rented from Tunkwa Lake Resort: www.tunkwalakeresort.com

Oops, I already bought my airplane ticket for Monday afternoon/evening  :(. Oh, well on Sunday I would be dead anyway after the Winnipeg marathon run  :).

No problem Janos! I decided to open Tunkwa Lake one day earlier, as it'll allow the competitors that are attending the Loch-Style Fly Fishing Masterclass the opportunity to fit in an extra day of practice if they are so inclined...

Yes, I understand Todd! Probably I could use an extra day as well, just I do not think I could change my airplane ticket... I trust my teammates and one day practicing on Tunkwa should be enough. Thanks, Janos

I would think that you'll be fine Janos. I won't be arriving until noon on the 18th, which means that I most likely won't have any practice time on Tunkwa Lake. The nice thing about Tunkwa is the fact that there are fish everywhere in that lake...  :)

You are funny Todd, my knowledge is not even close to yours in fly-fishing and probably I would not need  any practice session on a local lake over here like Patterson Lake :). Yes, I heard that fish everywhere in Tunkwa, also I saw the stats from last year comp :).

Janos, I wouldn't worry too much, as I'm sure that your team mates will be able to provide you with excellent and detailed instructions on the most productive locations to fish, so just follow their recommendations, and those of you boat partners if they have been doing well during their practice sessions...

The fishing was really "off" last year due to the weather system that passed through that region and caused the flooding in Calgary. That being said; I'm certain that you're going to thoroughly enjoy fishing both of these venues!
