  1. As part of our conservation project, we will be collecting fin clips from Arctic Grayling in the Upper Pembina watershed. DNA will be extracted from the fin clips for analysis later in the summer. We will be accompanying biologists on Rat Creek and Dismal Creek August 3-6 and there is room for experienced anglers who are members of Trout Unlimited Canada. These waters are closed to recreational angling, so we must follow strict guidelines per our fisheries research license in addition to safety and covid protocols. Felt soled boots will not be permitted. Send an email to grayling@nlft.org if you would like to help out.

  9. As part of our conservation project, we will be collecting fin clips from Arctic Grayling in the Upper Pembina watershed. DNA will be extracted from the fin clips for analysis later in the summer. Northern Lights chapter members will be primarily working in Rat Creek, although there are opportunities in Lovett River and other tributaries. These waters are closed to recreational angling, so we must follow strict guidelines per our fisheries research license in addition to safety and covid protocols. Anglers will be required to attend a short orientation session via Zoom meeting. Angling will be done in the month of May. If you are an experienced stream angler (spin fishing or fly fishing) and are a TUC member, please send an email to Grayling@nlft.org and indicate your availability.
  10. 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- View online
