Clearing the Cache…

Today I had an experience of working on my new website.  Someone sent me new information to view via a link to the internet. I had used the same link in the past.  What I didn’t know is that internet explorer keeps a cache of information that I have used in the past, so instead of bringing up the new, it gave me the old information as a reference. In order to see the new information, I had to hit the f5 key to clear internet explorers past cache.

What About Bud?

15 March 2011

I am very happy to say that Bud McLean, my Dad, is recovering nicely.  He has had one tough year, he is still on the road to recovering but it is now just regaining his weight and building his strength back up.  Currently he is recovering in the states, and is looking forward to heading north to Tsylos Park Lodge and Chilko Lake.. If you want to send him a greetings card or drop him a note, I know that he would love to hear from you...just send it to me and I will forward it...

Spring at Chilko Lake

15 March 2011

   

   Snowflakes falling softly on the past

   A river flowing easy, Gentled by winters touch

   Swans flying over, Born to travel, Honking for spring

   Reach out and touch a star nights, the moon with sometimes a howling presence

   Owls hooting encouragement, Deer standing easy with the harshness gone

   Eagles calling and soaring with courtship

   The recommended touch Is here

Chilko Trout Genetics

You know what they say, "you can be a big fish in a little pond, or a little fish in a big pond". I guess the Chilko Steelhead decided to be a big fish in Chilko River and Lake, instead of a little fish in the ocean.

Latest Tsylos Park Lodge Testimonial from Pat

22 February 2011

"My son and I have been fishing at Tsylos Park Lodge for 10 years. I have fished for many years all over the US West and in South America but this is one of the most consistent fisheries that I have experienced.  For me, large fish that take dry flies defines the ultimate in trout fishing.  Combine this with the family atmosphere of the McLean's operation and you have a place that will call you back year after year.  We look forward to our 11th year!
