Some Neat Fly Fishing Pictures from 2009

Submit photos to Bob to add to this post!

Barry Black with a nice Red Deer River brown trout he caught on opening day fishing a skwala pattern while out with Dave Jensen.

John with a nice rainbow from a local Central Alberta lake.

Tim M. submitted this photo. Tim's friends donated their time and boats for a Rotary float on the Elk River near Fernie this year. Fun was had by all! Way to go Tim!

Phil Nash with a nice rainbow from a lake near Kamloops. Looks c-c-cold Phil.

Karen with a Fortress Lake trophy brook trout.

Bob with a Patterson Lake trophy brown caught on a size 14 ice cream cone chronomid (black and red).

Brad Saunders with two trophy Tiger Trout from Twin Lakes, Manitoba. Is that an Orange Crush in the mouth of that first Tiger Trout? These pics were taken in late September 2009.

Fly Tying Mondays Starting November 30, 2009

Hi Everybody!

I have been having several inquiries about when we get the Central Alberta Fly Tyers sessions going again. Well, we will kick off the season on Monday November 30, 2009. We will again be having the sessions at Annie L Gaetz School.

As usual, I will be looking for presenters over the course of the next few weeks. I hope that we will get several of you stepping up to help with this.

I have booked Phil Rowley to do a session on January 9th. That is a Saturday. We as a group will decide what we want Phil to do. Phil is quite flexible and he wants input from the group.

I will have a tentative list of dates up in the next week or so.

How about sending me some pictures from your 2009 fishing year that I can post.

...I hope to hear from you soon.
