  9. To all my email friends. I messed up my gmail and now I have to switch to Webmail as Google only wants to send password reset verification codes as text messages, and when you don’t have a mobile phone……..you get locked out because of “too many attempts”. Please, if you wish to stay in touch with me via email, send me an email to neilstuartsutherland@xplornet.ca so that I can build up my contact list again. Cheers, Neil

  13. A lot of great patterns in that book. I need to get tying now
  14. In 1998 Denny’s Fly Tying Specialties published a book of Alberta fly patterns titled “Flies for Alberta”. This book was authored by Reg Denny, Ian Denny, and Roy Ramdeen. The surviving authors feel that this book should live on, and as such they have decided to produce a revised version in electronic format for anyone that wants to have it. The book is still copyrighted and cannot be sold, however it is free to use by anyone that wants to download it. It is hoped that by releasing this electronic version, the legacy of the book and the patterns within it will live on! Flies for Alberta-
