That's correct in particular Kottenay Lake, I would class them as the Canuck equivalent of our Ferox as they grow large on a diet of Kokanee salmon.

Stroma? Some of the Cod guys call it this, I belive its the original Norse name.
Ok, I admit it, I quite like this salmon fishing lark....

I know the Gable Enders call the dunes the bents. This comes from Agrostis or bentgrass. Never knew there was a nick name for the Beach.

I always thought that it was the same name as the farm, at least that's what all the locals I talk to call it.
