They don't seem to make them like they used too.

I fished for dogfish years and years ago further up Sidney Inlet from the west end of Shelter Inlet, if they were there they came aboard like grapes, usually big ones. Fish farms, aka lice hatcheries, probably have something to do with the lack of salmon returns in Clayoquot Sound's more pristine sections.  The biggest loss was the sockeye run in Kennedy Lake. Apparently they used to tow gillnetters up the Kennedy River to catch the ones that made it past the cannery and there was a lot more logging in much of that eastern part of Clayoquot Sound too.  Can't blame farms for these but it's no surprise they have the same mentality.


The diet part of that wiki article is crap.  Lingonberries are not found in the south coast.  They’re a northern species.

Haha, I got the "Warning: this topic has not been posted in for at least 120 days." digging this thread up.  Thanks COVID.

I'm not even sure road trips can count as 'travel' but I just wanted to say holy poop, Kim City hotels are going for 500K/night for a four star hotel.  I'd rather stay at the Empress Hotel for less than that.

Looks like I'll be going to the island.  Sorry islanders....

We know you…. You’re welcome anytime! 

Are those hotels trying to make up for lost time on a single summer???

I assumed she meant $500

Ok.  AFAIK things ARE more expensive out west.

Also - this heat is so high that people in Toronto are mentioning it.

$500 is a ripoff for any hotel in that town.  That’s expensive hotel in Vancouver kind of prices.

500K?

Haha, that was a perfect storm of posting while sleep-deprived, over-heated, and after putting together a cash forecast.  No, $500... but still highway robbery.
