  1. Some of us are going to get together to fish at Telegraph Park Pond in Hay Lakes. DATE: WEDNESDAY JULY 10 Meet at 7 pm and fish until 9 or until the mosquitoes are too bad. Go east on Highway 14, and then southeast on Highway 21 to get to Hay Lakes. Since this is a ways from Edmonton I recommend car pooling. Contact me at president@nlft.org if you plan to come.

  3. Congratulations to Barry White for being awarded first place for his book "My" Bow River from the Outdoor Writers of Canada. http://outdoorwritersofcanada.com/awards-2019.html Copies of the book can be bought from Barry or at select retailers. http://bowriver.com/my-bow-river-barry-whites-secrets
  4. Here is Emmerson with his new cane rod.
  5. Congratulations to Emmerson Dober who won the split-cane rod donated by Don Andersen. The rod is an 8 foot 6 weight with two tips. Each year Don Andersen donates a bamboo rod to the Northern Lights Fly Fishers chapter of Trout Unlimited Canada to support our project work.
  6. As part of our ongoing grayling project in the upper Pembina we went to install temperature probes in some of the tributaries on May 18. Ken Monk lead our group consisting of Bill Evans, Stan Baron and myself to various locations on the streams. We installed 6 temperature probes, 2 air temperature data recorders, and some compliance cameras. We didn't get a chance to launch the drone because it was too windy. But the roads were dry and we had a good day. Ken will be giving a talk about our grayling project work at our meeting on May 29. In the meantime here is Ken up a tree installing a compliance camera.
  7. Nice and Easy is the random camping site on the North Fork Road where it comes to the North Ram River from the east. So called because this is where Nice Creek and Easy Creek which join together upstream flow into the North Ram. So probably the horseback staging area as you describe it (though it's more like a quad staging area as I have never seen horses there, cattle, but not horses). Not to be confused with the outfitters camp west of the Forestry Trunk Road.

  10. It was a good day. Short because there was not as much garbage to pick up this year, and because we had a great turnout of volunteers. 13 or 14 of us by my count. Thanks to Dan for organizing the day and being the masterchef on the BBQ. Thanks to Karen for bringing the food. Thanks to everyone who scoured the lakeshore and parking lot for garbage. Thanks to Barry White and those who helped him drag the deer that was stinking up the launch site up to the parking lot for the county to pick up. Thanks to Barry who took some group photos which will make their way here someday. After lunch most of us went fishing. Trout were caught. Some of us were lucky enough to catch the holdovers. Some of us had to be content with catching the just stocked 6-8 inchers. The most persistent angler was Karen who was still catching fish from the pier after I loaded up my boat and left.
  11. I do like The Phenological Fly as a guide, but I think Bob (God rest his soul) could have done better than using the Bastard Adams for all the mayflies. A parachute pattern might work better on a long, slow glide where the trout get to inspect the fraudulent mayfly.
  12. And then last Tuesday I received an e-mail from a proud father who thanked us for teaching kids how to tie flies, and gave us some photos of his son, Caleb, tying his woolly bugger and their fishing trip. Congratulations to Caleb for catching this 7 pound trout with a fly he tied himself.
  13. Thanks to all the volunteers who helped at the Boat and Sportsmen's Show. And thanks to Canadian National Sportsmen's Show who gave us double the space that we have had in the past years. Our Kids Can Tie booth was a great success with over 400 kids tying, and 1100+ stickers given out. Here are some photos from the weekend.
  14. Northern Lights Fly Fishers will be the Edmonton Boat & Sportsmen's Show teaching kids how to tie a woolly bugger. We will be at the booth we have had for the last 2 two year across from the Fishin' Hole in Hall B. The show runs from March 14 to 17. The hours are Thursday noon-9, Friday noon-9, Saturday 10-7, Sunday 10-5. We divide each day into 2 shifts. If you can tie a wooly bugger consider volunteering to help the kids tie. Contact our volunteer coordinator Dan Tulik at events @ nlft.org (remove spaces to get proper e-mail address). Our volunteers get free admission, and we pay for parking (though we encourage car pooling), and a meal. Sometimes we are really busy with all the vises occupied, and sometimes we have slack time so you can take in the exhibits.
  15. I have put this on my wall calendar.
