Well, if you follow along for a while, you will find that the vast majority of those who post here are not only Canadian and Albertan, but most are from Edmonton and area. We do have a few who post from elsewhere (Red Deer, Calgary, Crowsnest, some in BC), but they are generally friends of or know local Edmonton members. That's not surprising, since Norhtern Lights Fly Tyers is the Edmoton Chaper of Trout Unlimited.

So Arctic Wolf, where are you from? What are your fishing interests? And how can we make you feel welcome?

I know at least one member who is a Burbon fan although I hesitiate to guess his brand preference.

There's a few of us who think a man's drink should have more hair on it and be brewed by men with the courage to wear kilts.

I won't count the guy who adulterates Gods nectar with 5 alive. He' s a good fisherman though, even if he can't stick to fly pattern recipie.

sorry Dave didn't see your post only Gary's, who unfortunaitely for me is my friend...Well Dave..I'm an old school fly tier,fly fisher, with the knowledge of so many other methods of catching fish....including the "Italian" special...for you see m8..I'm an Italian Canadian who has been living in Calgary for 8 years now..BUT..the good Lord willing I'll return to BC, from whence I came from..

 

Over the years Dave , I've tried a lot of different brews but always seems to come back to JD...those that drink that stuff that the kilt wearers drink....pffffffft...have never aquirred a taste for...

 

got to ask you a question or two m8...#1...how come I can only tick something I like but 'once' per day...tried to tick your post to me...got an error...#2...do you object if I use my own smiles instead of the ones in here...

 

............thanks for letting me know that most of the group is north of me...that is till I relocate.........Daniel

Not sure about the ticking thingie. Don't do that myself. You'll have to ask Ken or Kristi about that.

i don't think your own smilies wold hurt.. I'm presuming you can just psat them in.

 

You don't have to be stuck in Cowtown.You can awlays come up this away for a fish.

Or possibly meet half way on the Red Deer when it opens again.

i know one guy that Emmerson and I meet there from time to time.

 

As for BC, in the not too distant future, when the wife and I retire, we'll be moving to Victoria.

My daughter is keeping the house warm for us while she goes to U Vic

aah..........you made it you old coot...I just checked to see if I can pop up an image here but.....Posted Imagecan't do it..looks like this forum makes you use an out side host , then tells you to put up the url...a little behind the times I say..surely the staff [Admin] can get the one that all you need to do is click on a button.."upload image"..which will allow you to take pics directly from ones PC...this is 2012, and upgrades to sites are always advancing...

 

..So Chris..as long as you don't tell anyone that I'm here ...relaxing in the Alberta sun...Posted ImagePosted Image..until I get myself back in BC, where I can once again hang this outside my door..Posted Imageit would be great!

well first off we all got to do something about a location to show off our talent..Qfly as a rule likes to put up his videos of his fantastic ties..do you not have a separate place for that?...and do you not have a break down of the flies...Nymphs..for River, StillWater..Wets for both, Dries for both,Streamers or lures, so where do we start flogging this forum with our talent....huh????Posted Image

hmm our videos get posted into YouTube where you can subscribe to the NLFT RSS feed and as for having this site all divvied out into sub folders/chapters that has yet to happen.. I thing some organization and a little direction (for me) I could help with that.. something I will check into. That idea doesn't sound to bad at all Daniel.

If you wanted to send me an out like I could get it going for the forum. I'd have to double check with a couple of the admins and executive first..

Good morning Guys and Ladies some great ideas keep them coming. I like the dividing into sub topics. I've notice thats become very common on the Web forums. Just bare with us as some of this stuff is new to us so sometimes it's baby steps. Once Ken and Dave and Kristi's lives slow down (snow is about gone so we will get Kristi's feet planted more firmly on the gound now) :laugh:

Ken real easy to get along with and I'm sure talking to him he will find out how to do most of this.

Great to have you guys on board looking forward to the interaction and yes Artic Wolf I will post of pictures

Ha ha Dennis "(snow is about gone so we will get Kristi's feet planted more firmly on the ground now)" your funny! Yes as it seems my feet err foot is going to be planted firmly now.. Although I have an opportunity to take off again, unfortunately it wont happen till next season with this injury i have.

Still am using crutches.. may have to have surgery :'( *sucks*

 

I'm here to take some of the pressure off of Ken and yes we will get the sub sections going.. I can do that so as long as i have an OK from the biggies. (you guys) 8). Anyways I look forward to putting my handy work into this forum to help rebuild/structure it.

 

Just need an out line of what they "BOYS" would like to see for sub sections as I have very little experience with what flies to fish where and when and all the sorts that go with. :P

I can categorize based on what i know..

 

Dry Flies and Poppers - Surface fly for lakes and rivers

 

Nymphs - Bottom fly for lakes and rivers

 

Streamers - throughout water column of lakes and rivers

 

Wet Flies - throughout water column of lakes and rivers

 

Salmon Flies - throughout water column of rivers and streams

 

Saltwater Flies - throughout water column, flats, reefs and mangroves

 

Is this the sort of sub catagories your all looking for??

 

send me feed back and I'll get it done.

yes..Posted Image...if you go and have a look at this site, which I was the sole SMod for over a year..I brought this site from 230 members to over 600 before I had a major disagreement with it's owner/Admin...which was easy to repeat...he wanted a 'social network with this site, where the $$$$, was more important than the solidarity of world top tiers..not my idea of a site who contained 'World Class Tiers'..the matured members of this hobby...so I left!...........but ..in this site , if you allow me and my friends we can build it up with surprising top notch tiers...

 

..think you should also consider a location in this site to have a "video library" as well..........

A lump of dung, what the hay. :whip: Not to worry unless it starts to smell like a lump of dung. Is there any flies hovering around it yet
