Terry, great to see you down at the show. I look forward to seeing pics from others.

 

Cudos to all the club members who made the journey down to Calgary to help teach kids young and old again how to tye their first flies!

 

:clap:

PS - We need to change Dave "WoolyBugger" Murray's login ID to "Scarface" now after taking that icy tumble -- OUCH! Also congrats on recognition for his invention of the new "Canadian Clouser Pattern" ;)

PPS - Bob Clouser is a riot! Hats off to all the Edmonton Crew that pretty much chaperoned him the entire weekend, and lent most of the tying materials he needed to do his demos as his luggage never made it to Canada with him. This was also his first trip up here, and we all hope he makes it back again soon!

I thought it was a great show this year with lots of bargains on rods, fly lines etc. It was good to spend some time with fellow NLFT&F's and help some young 'uns tie their first fly. It really is fun to see how excited some of the kids are when they leave with their wooly bugger. Have a look at the following post on the Flyfish Alberta forum, from a parent whose daughter visited our booth (scroll to bottom of page to find post by Kay). Good work everyone :clap::clap: Terry
