Sorry for the late notice, there’s a club get together tonight 7-8:30 as usual (1st and 3rd thursday of each month). Something came up and i can’t make it tonight. the room is booked so feel free to get together, tell stories and do some fly tying.
Jim Hopkins (Grampa J) will be dropping by tonight with his Hook and Hackle order book. it’s worth it to take a gander in there and see what he can order in for you. Professional quality materials and you’re supporting a local business (and a founding member of the club). He’s been working on having a website going and i’ll let everyone know when this is ready. If you need to get in touch with him and don’t have his number let me know, i can help you out.
I’ll see you all Dec 19
Hey all, this week (Nov 21) we’ll be doing some fly tying. Bring your gear and ideas to the Ernie Radbourne Pavilion in Muskoseepi Park 7-8.30 pm tomorrow.
I’m thinking it might be a good idea to look into what flys you can use for summer or winter fishing. Yes (most of) your flys are just as effective when ice fishing as they are in the warmer months. Most of those insects are still there, just in a slightly different place and moving slightly slower.
I’m planning on restocking my scud patterns (https://www.outdoorcanada.ca/tips-for-fly-fishing-with-scuds/) but take a look here to see what insects are in the water and find a pattern that matches that http://www.insectsofalberta.com/.
See you then, bring a friend or bring your kid.
Did you notice the water get hard this last week?
Yeah, i know that’s a cruel question. Too soon for ice fishing, too expensive to go to Mexico (invite me if you’re going please), and almost too cold for fly fishing. Perfect time to start tying and telling “true” fishing stories!
The first and 3rd thursday of the month we will be meeting at the Ernie Radbourne Pavillion in Muskoseepi Park 7-8:30 pm. Thats this thursday, like TOMORROW Thursday.
Let’s share some stories and go over what topics you’d like to have on the agenda for this year. i have a few things to discuss but we should hear what you want the club to do. If you are interested in doing a presentation at one of the meetings or writing up something for the website (www.pcflyfishers.org) \ facebook page (members only or the public one), or want to add something to the emails i send out let me know.
And as always drop on by Primetime Hunting and support a local business. They are a supporter of the club and are offering discounts with your current member card (ask instore for details).
