The Fall season is upon us and that means water boatmen and backswimmers will be on our local lakes shortly! There have been reports of some boatmen showing up already in Central Alberta pothole lakes.
I was talking with Kent and Amanda Govett, owners of Canadian Llama Company, earlier this week. They are a great place to purchase fly tying hooks, beads and a wide variety of fly tying materials. They are a Canadian company and their service is fantastic!
I noticed that Les Robinson has made some modifications on his tried and true Water Boatman patterns. The modifications are using newly designed Pro Tyer Hooks and 2 tone tungsten half beads that can be purchased on line at the Canadian Llama Company!
These are excellent patterns. Give them a try!
