Default 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.

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.

South Calgary for 2 years this June,100+ days on Bow(still learning it),25+ years flyfishing,mostly back east for Atlantics and Brookies,newly addicted to spey casting since last year,again,still learning but loving it.Ive spent a few days in the hills/found some spots/caught some fish,Oldman,Livingstone,Racehorse,Cataract,Sheep,H ighwood,Jumping Pound....always up for seeing/exploring new places.Specifically,I wouldnt mind hooking up for a day with someone that knows the Crowsnest or likeminded adventurous fool like myself willing to split gas,go in blind and see what we can find?Also plan to explore lots more of FTR this summer,Waiparous-Nordegg....possibly beyond?West coast salmon/steelhead in August??(Skeena?)Aside from that,always game for day/evening on Bow?
40+yo redneck,ammo and camo and things that go blammo,dont mind roughn it,love beer,love rye,like my wife,smoke'em if ya got'em,have truck/will travel.

Hi guys
Would this thread be better if the latest post be shown first instead of last. It would help to keep the post up with the latest interests and requests. My opinion.

I am working nights 5-1am this week and I am wondering if anyone wants to fish the bow an afternoon this week? I am a beginner but would love to learn from a more experienced fly fisherman or even just head out with another beginner. Shoot me a PM and we can figure something out!

New to Calgary looking to go out. I do not no the area so you would need to be my guide. I left my waders back home so dry land would be ideal. I can drive I have a truck. Looking to go Sat or Sun.

Anyone interested in going to police lake this Sunday, I have a pontoon but am not against fishing out of a boat if you have one.

Same here. Long time fisherman but i just picked up my first fly fishing outfit today. If somebody would like to share some knowledge, i would like to start in the few pothole lakes around Edmonton. I also have a nice fishing boat for bigger water if anybody interested. I provided the boat, you, the knowledge lol.

I should pick up quickly as i used to follow my dad who use to be an avid Atlantic Salmon fly fisherman. But i haven't touched a fly rod in over 20 years. Hopefully i can catch a few trouts without loosing an eye lol.
