Fishin' Alberta With Paul Chaisson

This is my new website for
Demon Flies.

Introducing an all season lure, including ice fishing. You can troll with them, fly fish and jig for ice fishing.

I have nine colours and packs come in two. We also have combo pack with all nine colours. Here is Angelas Das doing a demo of them.

You can also twist the blades to have them splash harder. Here are some pics with fish caught with this custom tackle.
Steve Meredith caught this perch with olive green Demon flies.
The green Demon flies are used for walleye, perch, pike. White fish love the pink Demon Flies.

Homeless Man Joins Busker

I went out busking in Leeds on New Year's Eve and, after a while, was joined by a homeless man in a wheelchair who asked if he could sing with me. As a busker, I spend a lot of time on the streets and had seen this man many times over the years, but didn't know he was singer.

Saturday Sessions July 1st Presents

This weeks Canada Day Mark Ammar's Saturday Sessions show 678 presents - Barry Campbell - I have always enjoyed Barry's style of play. His very versatile choice of tunes can include everything from Peter Tosh to Pink Floyd with a present funky, blues, reggae, soul feel.

Barry's debut CD, “Ballad of a Ne’er Do Well”, is an awesome blues album that was released to rave revues and great air play. Its a disc with a guitar heavy sound which melds Barry’s love of Blues and Reggae.
Barry drew on diverse influences such as: Toots and the Maytalls, Freddy King, Bob Marley, Gov't Mule, Peter Tosh and Magic Sam. I first met Barry back in our start up days at The Castlerock Pub in the early 2000's and he's become a regular invite as our guest each year.. - Mark Ammar 780-217-9787.

Celebrate Canada's 150th

Celebrate Canada's 150th
So, What do we Canadians Have to be Proud of Particularly on this our 150th Birthday!

1. Smarties, which unlike Reese's Pieces melt in your mouth and not in your hand (not sold in the USA ).

2. Crispy Crunch and Coffee Crisp (not sold in the USA ).

3. The size of our football fields, one less down, and bigger balls.

4. Baseball is Canadian - 1st game June 4, 1838 - Ingersoll, ON.

6. Hockey is Canadian.

7. Basketball is Canadian.

8. Apple pie is Canadian.

9. Mr. Dress-up beats Mr. Rogers.

10. Tim Hortons beats Dunkin' Donuts.

11. In the war of 1812, started by America , Canadians pushed the Americans back past their White House. Then we burned it, and most of Washington ... We got bored because they ran away. Then, we came home and partied. Go figure.

12. Canada has the largest French population that never surrendered to Germany .

13. We have the largest English population that never surrendered or withdrew during any war to anyone, anywhere. EVER! (We got clobbered in the odd battle but prevailed in ALL the wars).

14.. Our civil war was fought in a bar and lasted a little over an hour.

15. The only person who was arrested in our civil war was an American mercenary, he slept in and missed the whole thing. He showed up just in time to get caught.

16. A Canadian invented Standard Time.

17. The Hudsons Bay Company (while Canadian owned + operated) once owned over 10% of the earth's surface and is still around as the world's oldest company.

18. The average dog sled team can kill and devour a full grown human in under 3 minutes.

19.. We know what to do with the parts of a buffalo.

20.. We don't marry our kin-folk.

21. We invented ski-doos, jet-skis, Velcro, zippers, insulin, penicillin and the telephone. Also short wave radios which save countless lives each year.

22.. We have all frozen our tongues to something metal and lived to tell about it.

23. A Canadian invented Superman.

24. We have coloured money.

25. Our beer advertisements kick ass (Incidentally ... so does our beer) but most important, the handles on our beer cases are big enough to fit your hands in with mitts on.

OOOoohhhhh Canada!

Anti-Poaching Drive Brings Siberia’s Tigers Back From Brink

Anti-Poaching Drive
In February, Pavel Fomenko was told that the body of a young female tiger had been discovered underneath a car parked outside the town of Luchegorsk, in eastern Russia. Fomenko – head of rare species conservation for WWF Russia – took the corpse for examination where he uncovered the grim details of the animal’s death.

The Amur tiger, which is also known as the Siberian tiger, had been caught in a trap and had chewed off a paw to free itself. It was left crippled, unable to hunt, and died of starvation while seeking shelter under the car.
