  3. For next year's January Seminar who would you like to see come out? Please post suggestions in this thread. Where possible, please include a link to a website. Thanks!
  4. I also like your suggestions Michael, but am really hoping for some more tyers. As I mentioned before, never tied a classic wet and am slightly intimidated by having to do 7 lol Yikes!
  5. Fantastic pictures Gary, thanks for posting about this! Glad to hear that it went so well
  6. I don't even know where to start I learned so much! Thanks to Brian and Rick, along with everyone that helped make the Seminar a success! A couple of key things: SLOW DOWN and OBSERVE. I get tunnel vision if I'm alone on the water at times and both Rick and Brian really hammered home the need to slow things down as well as pay attention to my surroundings; not just because they're beautiful, but because particular observations can give me clues that will help my fishing. Last night I also thought about how grateful I am to everyone that has taken this beginner out fishing. Over and over again this weekend I heard and saw things that the people I've been out with have talked about. Was a pretty good feeling to know I'm in such good hands out there! HUGE thanks to all of you I know it's not easy having to teach and fish at the same time!
  7. Presenter: Dennis Southwick Dennis will be tying three different patterns that utilize Magic Flash. Patterns: Floating Backswimmer, MF Nymph, Parachute Drake For more information on patterns and materials, check out our January Newsletter: http://www.nlft.org/...NLFTC_13-01.pdf
  8. Presenter: Barry Phillips For those who've been following the streamer fly patterns that have shown up recently on the Forum, this will be a treat. Barry Phillips will demonstrate the techniques required to tie these classic and elegant streamer patterns. Patterns: Grey Ghost, Black Ghost For more information on patterns and materials, check out our January Newsletter: http://www.nlft.org/newsletter/13/NLFTC_13-01.pdf
  9. Touche Junior... I didn't even browse any of the other "local" causes.
  10. Done. 110 Votes given to the project. This was really easy to do folks and only took me about 5 minutes.
  11. There's an additional weekend in July (13th & 14th). The nice thing about that one is that licenses are not required so people could come out and give it a shot without having to commit dollars. No admitting defeat here! Just thinking that with a huge event like the one referred to, we may not have enough resources to cover off hundreds of eager new fly anglers.
  12. That's the one I was thinking of Junior! I wasn't sure what the logistics were like. You're not being negative at all, just realistic. I think you're bang on - that'd be a bit more than we could chew. I second doing some kind of event that would coincide with the free fishing weekend.
  13. Currently Edmonton does two free fishing weekends per year - one for Family Day in February (yipes, no fly fishing, maybe some ice fishing though) and one during National Fishing Week which is July 6-14th of 2013. If memory serves me, there is one retailer in the city who goes out and helps people gear fish the NSR during National Fishing Week. Might be an interesting idea if we contacted them to perhaps add some fly to the event with some volunteers from the club?

  14. Thanks Gary Nope, I wasn't up all night just to write the above... I actually had started it a little while back when this thread got going. Couldn't sleep for the life of me, started puttering around on the internet, saw this thread and figured "aww heck, might as well get'er done and posted".
