Looking for a Fly Fishing Partner Thread...etc
 
I know its way too early I'm thinking we should have a sticky in the sub-category. As most people know fly fishing partners are a bit tougher to find and some fly fisherman can be more selective.

What do you all think?

Sounds good to me, im returning fly fishing from a 5 year hiatus and I don't have any friends in the Edmonton area who fly fish. Been fly fishing for most of my life, and i really need a partner willing to do the odd boot out to the mountains and such.

chucky 01-22-2013 01:04 PM

I'd be up for it too.
I'm new to these shores and don't know anyone who fishes, yet. I enjoyed exploring last year but it would be great to discover new places and go with someone like minded.

RustyRat 03-02-2013 10:52 PM

I'll be looking for fly fishing company as well. Been fly fishing my whole life. Just moved to Edmonton. Mostly Atlantic Salmon and Trout experience for me. I tie pretty good fly as well so if I can line up a partner or two I could supply a few patterns for a trip.

Winch101 03-22-2013 10:53 AM

A partner for fly fishing would be good
 
I am more than avid boat fisher in Southern Ab.
When I moved here 20 yrs. ago I was wired for the bow
Then I discovered winter bow fishing . Had a couple of
Self induced accidents , bad granite cut climbing the bank
And got taken out by a floating ice block cause I waded too deep.
Haven't been too avid last couple of years ,but now I am totally
Retired so could go anytime .... Have caught some nice trout
But always willin to learn ( my wife says I have to put in that's
Only in fishing the learning ) if you are avid and don't know nothing
That's ok too ...

Fish along 03-26-2013 03:29 PM

The leduc pond ,Trout here?
 
Are there any trout in the Leduc Pond ,thought I might cast a fly in there some time

pipercub17 03-27-2013 01:23 PM

they put a few trout in the leduc res every may but the fishing in there has never been worth the time !

Xiph0id 03-27-2013 06:25 PM

I've never caught anything in the reservoir either.
Might try again this year for the heck of it.

Rabdo 04-01-2013 01:40 AM

Anyone interested in fishing the Bow River this upcoming weekend? I'm a newbie and want to go with someone that can show me the ropes. I have taken a "boot camp" and have all the gear that I know of that I need. Now I just need to watch and learn from someone. I'm a quick learner. Been out a few times, I'm strictly a catch and release fisherman. I use the term "catch" loosely as I have never caught a fish on my fly rod or out of the Bow.
