The two day seminar is going to be a blast and I know for sure that I will learn lots about nymphing from Rick. This MAY Be the year that i go deep so the seminar will be of special interest to me. If you have not purchaesd your ticket to the show...don't wait...do it now.

Yesirree! This will be a great seminar!

If you're a member who aint' got your ticket yet,

make sure to get out to the meeting tonight before the discount expires.


Vince Go Deep?

This I gotta see!

Maybe we should start a "Vince Nymphing Pool".

We can do it on the "buy a square" method

with each square having a number for the minutes he actually nymph fishes.

Proceeds from the pool to help Brian D pay for the next rod he breaks.

I thought I had a picture of Vince nymphing this spring, and I was going to post it to blow his cover. However, when I checked it out, I found that when he is nymphing, he becomes invisible to my camera -- strange but true. I'll try again this spring/summer, if we can get him to give it another go.

Man this just keeps getting better and better. Confucius, as far as I know, did not fly fish but in looking this up I came across an old Sicilian proverb that goes....

"A fish caught on the dry is worth two on the nymph"


Terry, get your camera ready buddy...I need someone to record my nymphing moments.

.............an old Sicilian proverb that goes....

"A fish caught on the dry is worth two on the nymph"

I thought that old Sicilian saying went more lika dis :):) :


"A fisha dats caught onada dry, isa wortha two onada nymph."


Any, I'll stick with Confucious. Terry

Seems to me Vince said he was going to fish deep last yr. I think I saw that for about all of 5min so fishing to Vince this year means 10min. That will double his nymphing for this year. Vince talking about cigar I've brought a couple back from Cuba for you & Brian B. Hope to see you tomorrow usual place still have a couple of days holidays left.

I second that motion.

Once again NLFT&F and TU Edmonton proved that they can mount a great show.

Skip and Rick were great presenters giving lots of practical information.

Not a dull moment and many, many laughs and smiles.


Organizing and putting on an event like this takes a lot of volunteer effort.

At the risk of missing someone, I will only mention a few who did yeoman service.

Dennis for "travel" and venue arrangements

Brian B for general organizing and solicitation of raffle items

Rick for planning, travel and treasury work

Brian D for book sales and door duty

Mike and Emmerson for raffle duty.

Scratch and Commercial Solutions for an amazing printed program

Bill G and Scratch for "enlightening" A/V work

Jerrry P for late night framing

Dave M for being a fine MC and keeping everything on time

All our corporate contributors who contributed raffle items and advertised in the program


I'm sure I missed several names, so thanks to those unsung heroes who pitched in wherever needed.


Special thanks to all those who bought tickets, showed up and purchased books and raffle tickets.

Your attentiveness, courtesy and warm welcome to our presenters did not go unnoticed


And a big thanks to Rick Hafele and Skip Morris for two fine days

We hope to see you here again, soon, perhaps in fishing season!

What can I say....another great show. Lots of great info that I know will come in handy as this is the year that I'm going to go deep. I also would like to thank all of the fine club members who made this years seminar a huge success. The attention to detail was awesome, the contributions made by the suppliers was indeed awesome and as far as I can see all of the elements came together in a first class fashion.


I spoke to Skip and Rick a number of times throughout the weekend and they both said that NLFT is a top shelve club.


My thanks go to all of the guys that made this a great seminar...you know who you are....and to those who were not mentioned that once again stepped up to the plate and helped when asked with no questions asked.


First class job guys....I'm now looking forward to next years.

I think we can turn him over to the dark side yet.. and make him a 'Nymphomaniac' yet... if we don't "Hog-it-titis" the honey hole all to ourselves.




PMS - Aye, great show. Got the creative juices flowing looking at all that 'Bug P0rn'. I've already developed a half dozen new patterns that I can't wait to test this spring as a result.

:thumbup::thumbup: Great entertainment indeed - not to mention educational. Definitely inspired to try tying up some dragonfly patterns, and to also try tying up some smaller flies. Other than some swap flies, I think that the bulk of my tying has been #10 and larger - I think its a case of Swan-hog-mosis.


And yes - looking forward to hearing who's lined up for next year!
