Any number of how many "old" members are inactive?

Hi Paul,

Since there is about 5" of snow outside right now I will take tome to see who we still have active. No doubt that the senior 'senior members' are falling into the minority but thanks to guys like you we get the voice of wisdom almost every day. With the arrival of the snow I feel sort of down today, I went fishing yesterday but the creek was high. That should not affect my being able to catch some fish where I was at but by the looks of things they have moved out. I don't know if they all go to the lake or maybe some drop to the tide water but the water had nothing but some very dead silver salmon who had finished their duty.

The stream bed is filled with excavated gravel from the many sockeye & silvers who came in this year. But now the snow is here and winter really begins. I'll take a look at the stats.

I wasn't sure to join in early this year or so, but now I am glad that I did.
I learned so much and quicker by starting my own threads and asking questions instead of browsing older threads looking for my topics.
I also learned very quickly that the contents in this forum aren't healthy for the wallet.

Hi Ard,

And thanks for your reply. The Forum is "Tonic" for old buzzards like me, helps us keep memories of our fishing days alive.
Hope you have a good Winter up there this year.
Paul

Summer was great up until the end of August then the rains got serious. June & July were as good as it gets here Paul. I keep talking about some new blog stuff and by weeks end I'll get some pictures and information about the Kings on the pages here.
