Thanks for the list. I picked up three new books today from Wholesale Sports at lunch, and grabbed my other 6 books from my library to get ready for book signing. Looking forward to the seminar this weekend. Thanks Brian for getting these guests up here. Dave Hughes first appearance on the circuit up north in 10 years. Gonna be a good show!


I learned to tye flies from Hughes American Fly Tying Manual 15 years ago -- simply the best! Can't wait to meet him finally in person.

Helluva show eh folks!?


Thanks to all whom had their hands in bringing our guests up here, and organizing this event. One for the books indeed, of which I bought way too many.. and still not enough. :D It was worthy every penny, and now I have plenty of tying to do! Spring is just around the corner, and this event only brought my cabin fever to new heights.


Finally, with some of the names thrown around for possible guests next year, and beyond... it seems Edmonton may have indeed become the new mecca for Fly Fishing in Alberta. :)

From start to finish this was a first class operation and I thank all that had anything to do with putting it on, especially Dave and Jim.


Thx Sno

Lance I agree to all points. This was one fantastic Show Dave & Jim are 2 great people. I very much enjoy their company. I learnt a lot and there was also lots of little tidbets to pick up. Which I will be encorperating into my tying.


A Big thanks to all that came out I hope they enjoy the show as much as I did.


I can not say enough about Dave Hughes & Jim Schollmeyer I thank both for their great presentations and sharing their knowledge so freely. This is Very much what this club stands for.


Thank Dave & Jim


Until Next Year

What a show. Had a great time and learned so much...my poor little brain is having a hell of a time putting it all together. I do think with what I learned this weekend that my small stream fishing will be much improved.


A huge thank you to all that put this first class event together.

You have got to be sorry if you were not at this seminar. : Dave and Jim put on one heck of a show. These two fly fishing and tying icons spared nothing in sharing their knowledge of this wonderful sport. All indications from those who attended were glowing. Bringing Dave Hughes out of retirement to come to Edmonton for a two day seminar considering that he will only be doing one other for a local Oregon club for the rest of the year was a major opportunity for Northern Lights Fly Tyers and Fishers. :clap::cheers::clap: Be ready for the next seminar.
