Hello all! Just joined the forum, and as a point of etiquette thought I better introduce myself.

 

I've been an outdoorsman my entire life and have spent many many moons with a rod in hand growing up in Ontario. I moved to Alberta about 13 years ago and kind of got out of it, chosing to chase big game rather than fish.

 

Now I have recently taken an interest in fly tying, and will be purchasing a rod and reel at the Fishing show at the Mayfield this weekend. Having never thrown a fly before, I look forward to the learning curve in transitioning from my bait-casting past.

Welcome to the forum. You've' come to the right place to get started in fly fishing.

When you go the Outdoor show this weekend, be sure to stop by the Northern Lights Fly Tyers booth and introduce yourself.

We'll be there helping kids tye some flies and selling tickets on the bucket raffle.

We'll also have flyers and tickets for our two upcoming educational events

Beginners Fly Tying Seminar on April 16, but probably of more interest to you

Introduction to Fly Fishing on May 28th and 29th it's aimed at folk just like you who want to get started in the sport.

And if you, like us, are waiting for spring, you are welcome to drop into a regular Wednesday night meeting

The coffee's always on.

Thanks very kindly Dave. I did stop by, and I want to thank the guys there for walking my offspring through tying up a bugger! She has tied a few on her own, and she was tickled to get one done at the show.

 

I'm moving to Yellowknife this year, so my time is pretty limited. I hope to get to one of your two seminars, but we shall see how it looks after the Minister of Finance decides our household budget :) I may need to declare a non-confidence vote and have her vetoed :)
