  3. I am interested...but AEP makes it difficult....WHY do I have to register for a webinar? For EACH webinar? Why do I have to register for each of their surveys? So....if a person does not want to register...then I assume the background information will NOT be made available to the public??? Their quote "In January 2020, we collected feedback on Alberta fisheries management to help improve recreational fishing opportunities across the province. That feedback contributed to the 2020 Alberta Sportfishing Regulations, which came into effect on April 1, 2020. Someh

You may have received an email inviting you already; however I thought I’d give you a heads-up regardless. Topics covered in this engagement will include: how recreational management objectives and sportfishing regulations are established, an update on recreational harvest slot limits,

  6. Kids Can Catch is a program facilitated by the Alberta Conservation Association (ACA). There are several events throughout Alberta each year. At each event, volunteers are on on-hand to help kids learn angling skills. Our chapter has provided volunteers at events, as well as supplied casting bobbers and flies. The bobbers are easy to cast and allow for a presentation of a fly or chironomid using a spinning rod. This year, we would like to increase the number of flies available to new anglers at the Kids Can Catch events. We are looking for donations of flies that would work well in a
  7. All current members are invited to attend our AGM via ZOOM on Wednesday January 20 at 7 pm. Anyone who wishes to stand for Executive please contact Michael Dell at secretary @ nlft.org The two-year term of the previous charter with TUC expired in October, and although a renewal was signed by the chapter executive, we felt it necessary to ratify this decision at the AGM. The agreement can be terminated if there is sufficient reason to do so. There are no significant changes to the latest version of the charter.

  12. With the size that some of the Miur fish are getting a good minnow pattern or leech pattern would be the ticket. I am tying up a Snake pattern on the Jan. 20th zoom meeting that would be a go to for sure. (in black or olive) Dragon Trollers Kilburn Killer would be a good one along with a black Doc Spratley also would try some Kreelex minnows (Gun Metal & Pearlesent) Then a 52 Buick and in the fall wouldn't be without out a good back swimmer (floating and sinking) last but not least my llama leech olive with red bead size 12 only size I use (deadly)

  14. At Muir Lake there are 8 signs on the natural food sources for trout. Each sign describes the characteristics and life cycle of a particular species and provides suggestions for fly and spin fishing techniques to imitate that species. The signs include images of flies that represent the food item in each of its life stages. These signs are showing the effects of time and weather since they were installed in about 2003 and need updating and replacing. Northern Lights, with the support of the Edmonton Oldtimers Fishing Club, has started work on the replacements. We plan to submit a grant re

  18. I’m with Flymaster, way too many lines for me and only two of them made to the American Fishing Tackle Manufactures Association standards. Shameful. And Sci. Ang. Is no better. Don
  19. I do agree with you to some degree....but...as a fly fisher of over 40 years...don't over complicate things. Often...the "features" are nothing but marketing hype to get $ out of your pocket and into someone else's.
  20. I enjoy the zoom talk by Ruben Breitkreutz last night. My two cents on fly lines that there are so many tapers and "features" to choose from that you have to cast the line with your rod to know if it's what you really want. I believe you can no longer use the line weight on your rod and match it to the weight on a fly line and end up with combo that you will be happy casting.
